Hi Guys, great tool! Works well. But I have a problem:
When I enable the multi cursor, say for example, I have two mouses. When I move the mouse there are always 3 cursors on the screen, 2 being the active mouse, 1 being the last position of the moving mouse before it moves. Anyone have the same problem? Also when i disable the multi cursor, there will be two still stay on the screen. 1 can be moved by both of the mouses, 1 cant be moved, and can only be removed from the screen by turning the EtherMouse software off.

Sorry I haven't been able to figure out how I introduced this problem. I also haven't had a ton of time to work on it but I will get an update out as soon as I can solve it.

Thanks for the feedback

Yes, sorry there is a known problem when using MultiCursor mode leaving the extra cursor laying around... I haven't had a chance to find the problem yet, but its on my short list of things to fix.

I believe this version 0.69 is still available and does not have this problem, but some other things have been fixed so you may want to try each version. ... 200.69.exe

I will try to get this solved soon, just have a lot of things distracting me from working on this at the moment.

Ok I think i finally fixed the lingering cursor when using MultiCursor mode... please let me know if you still have any issues with that.

I also fixed a bug when mice were starting up with empty settings every once in a while

And finally, one user is still reporting issues with resuming from sleep and having to go to the tray icon to force EitherMouse to set the mouse settings properly... I thought that issue was solved, is anyone else getting this issue? Win10? Sleep/standby/hibernate? Administrator?

EitherMouse Setup.exe v0.753
EitherMouse.exe v0.753

2018-7-16: v0.753 - tooltip bug fix, update bug fix
2018-7-29: second user reporting problem with lost settings when resuming from sleep, i guess this isn't fixed.

Made another small change to hopefully fix the remaining resume from sleep/standby issues. Please let me know if this helps or if anyone still has the problem (or any problems)


EitherMouse Setup.exe v0.757
EitherMouse.exe v0.757

I haven't read the whole thread, so if anyone mentioned it and you gave a reason for not doing it, I apollogize.
Now, on the idea, is there a way to invert the colors on the pointer without using too many system resources on that. It's to distinguish both cursors (the tooltip is a great help, but if I can get rid of it this way, that will be great!)
Thanks in advance

I haven't looked into inverting the original cursor specifically, but at one point I was working on colored cursors like this:

but never really finished it... Need to make colored versions of all the cursors, fine tune the gdi+ replacement for a tooltip, etc... someday I will make the cursors for each mouse fully customizable, just a matter of free time

i still have the "zero" device bug to work out, sorry if anyone is stuck and can't use EitherMouse because of this, please email me or try an earlier version:

Tried downloading it today and Windows Defender blocked the setup file as a threat:

I'm having the 3rd cursor issue as well with one of my mice; prevents me from clicking with it because the 3rd cursor seems to be held down, so clicking is like clicking or dragging to the 2nd point of a selection box. I looked for a way to disable or expressly say I only have 2 mice to see if that could be a workaround, but there is no such option, heh.

I'm not surprised I had an issue though, because my mouse is an Evoluent v4 ergonomic mouse, so we're not talking normal drivers and I'm mostly expecting I won't be able to do this independent-cursor-per-mouse idea.

However, since you specifically pointed out ergonomics as being on your mind as part of the use for this set up (and exactly fits my case), I figured it was worth letting you know about this, and suggest - if you haven't already - to try to support the Evoluent since it's like a leading / high profile ergonomic mouse (or so it seems to me at least, haha).

Thanks for the feedback guys... Sorry I haven't been able to update lately, just moved and boy does that take up your free time!

I will try to get a fix up soon to take care of the "zero device" issue, which will probably solve your Evoluent mouse issue but if not we can work on a solution from there...

As for the false-positive threat issue, its an ongoing issue that I normally respond to users with something like:
Thanks for the feedback, its a known and ongoing problem with antivirus software. Most will let you ignore the detection or add it to a whitelist. You can try reporting the false positive to your antivirus company, but I gave up bothering with that years ago as i never made any progress. To date, since first released in 2009, i have not once found an actual infection of any file from and if you run it through you usually get around 2 out of 65 false positives. Personally i assume 2 are wrong and 63 are right, but i guess thats for the end user to decide. I will double check that there are no infections currently and let you know if I'm mistaken. Someday I will buy the license needed to created "signed" executables that may (or may not) help with the false positives, but its not cheap. You can also try downloading EitherMouse.exe directly, or and extract, and skip the setup program to see if that helps. ... endors.htm ... ubmit.aspx
