Guides on emulating older applications

This software allows you to use two buttons, and scrolling in OS9 with most USB Microsoft Mice. I seem to remember it working with 3rd party ones too.

Top DL: Microsoft IntelliPoint Mouse drivers version 2.3 (English; All other countries), installer is for a native classic Mac OS, only.

2nd DL: Microsoft IntelliPoint Mouse software (Multi-language Installer set) for Mac OS X, Mac OS 8 - 9, & Windows 9x and newer. Hybrid Mac/Win CD .iso in zip archive. If installing this using a native classic Mac OS; Best results gained using MacZip to extract and mounting the .iso with the Virtual CD/DVD Utility, or Toast.

Architecture: PPC x86 (Windows)

Mac OS 8.1-9.2.2

For Macs without built in USB, a 3rd party PCI USB card plus additional Apple USB driver software is required (Mac OS 8.5.1 - 9.2.2)

Mac OS X (untested by myself), guessing only useful on early PPC OS X versions.

Windows versions (untested by myself) possibly useful on earlier Windows OS's.

Windows version contains other software, such as Internet Explorer 5.5 (multiple-language install sets).

Has anyone experienced the same and found a solution or workaround? Thanks.

@matt73: I can't offer a solution, sorry. But I respond with the little I know.

I've used these drivers on Beige G3's and earlier Macs with PCI slots and an Ms Intellipoint 3 button corded USB mouse that look like the one's pictured in the screenshots above. They all needed the additional Mac USB for external cards drivers (plus Intellipoint drivers), to enable them to work correctly. Which they did very well.

I no longer have those Mac's but I do have a G4 eMac (Mac OS 9.2.2 with native built-in USB drivers) that has a corded 3 button Ms "Compact Optical Mouse V2.0" attached. It runs on this Intellipoint software and works just as well on that Mac, as if it were an Intellipoint model attached.

Tho' I have not tried using this software with a wireless version of a Ms mouse, so can't offer any workaround for you. It is possible tho' it would not be compatible with wireless models and you may need to go 3 button corded.

I tried using a (brand new, old stock) wireless windows mouse with this software on 8.6 but keep getting the same error whenever I plug it in to my USB card (USB card works perfectly btw):

"The software need to use the USB device "Barcode Reader" cannot be found. Please refer to the device documentation...[etc.]

Has anyone experienced the same and found a solution or workaround? Thanks.

Have you tried dragging it on to StuffIt Expander instead of double-clicking it?

Maybe the period in the middle of the filename caused the extension to be misread and the wrong type/creator assigned.

When I download this (even from the mirror), it's displayed as a Quicktime GIF file icon, even though it has a .sit file extension. When I open it, an error pops up saying that a suitable graphics importer couldn't be found. I don't think this is a gif, so I don't know why this is happening. I have Stuff-It expander, so I don't know what's going on. Is it possible the file is corrupted? FYI, I'm using Mac OS 9.2.1, and I haven't used Mac OS for years, because I've been using Linux, so it's possible I've forgotten something important that I'm now overlooking.

Anyway, can you please check the file? Thank you
