Hi there!

I'm using this software to set different cursor speeds for my mouse and my trackpad. It was working fine with an older version, but since I last updated it it usually fails to recognise when I switch from one pointing device to the other (ie, it keeps on using my mouse's set speed when I start using my trackpad, and viceversa). Tried deleting the profiles and setting them again, to no avail. What can I do?

Thanks

PS: One interesting thing is that, when the app is applying the wrong profile, it kind of 'wakes up' and switches to the right profile if I just click on the windows task bar button that shows you the hidden icons (among which is EitherMouse's).

Thanks for the heads up

Hopefully its just temporary, sorry about that

there's a mirror you can use until it comes back up at:
http://hotpad.us/

The main site is hosted by someone who (generously) donated the hosting and space, sometimes its down for an afternoon, but I havent seen it down for days at a time like this

The above mirror is my old server, slow connection but should work

I'm not sure if your question is a joke or not, but i would recommend peanut butter on mouse traps!

Hi there!

I'm getting a warning message from Windows 10 when running EitherMouse's installation file:

In Spanish, that means "Malicious file. This app can harm your device..." etc.

Thought you'd like to know.

Regards,

Danig

As far as I can tell this is another false-positive threat detection, 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 eithermouse.com... and if you run it through virustotal.com 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 EitherMouse.zip and extract, and skip the setup program to see if that helps, or temporarily disable your antivirus software.

Edit: I see all or most of your posts are in this thread, so you may not be an ahk user. This problem is not isolated to EitherMouse, but it is a long term problem with AutoHotkey in general, which is a product of it being a very powerful scripting language, and some malicious users exploiting that. EitherMouse is not malicious in its function, but has the capability to be (a similar script with no way to restore mouse button functionality would be considered malware, and the executable would very by almost nothing.

Thank you for clarifying that. I suspected that it might just be a false-positive warning, but needed to be sure. I've now installed it after clicking on Ignore the warning and install. Everything is ok so far.
Yes, I'm not an AHK user. I guess most EitherMouse's users aren't. Perhaps you'd want to prevent about the warning message at the download page - it's quite scary if you're unfamiliar with those circumstances you explain :)
