JSI Tip 5671. Your Windows XP IntelliMouse Optical scroll wheel does NOT function properly?

The IntelliMouse Optical scroll wheel may NOT function properly on Windows XP if both of the following are TRUE:

- The mouse is connected via a PS/2 port.

- Windows XP was  installed using RIS from a Riprep image.

The user can fix this problem:

1. Start / Run / Main.cpl / OK.

2. Select the Hardware tab.

3. Select Microsoft IntelliMouse Optical Wheel Mouse and press Properties.

4. Select the Advanced Settings tab.

5. Select the Assume wheel is present in the Wheel Detection drop-down list.

6. Press OK and OK.

You can fix the flat image hive by running the following script:

reg.exe LOAD HKLM\t <Path_to_setupreg.hiv_in_the_flat_image>
reg.exe DELETE HKLM\t\ControlSet001\Services\i8042prt\Parameters /v EnableWheelDetection /f
reg.exe UNLOAD HKLM\t

You can also set the Wheel Detection option to Assume wheel is present using the registry:

1. Use Regedit to navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\ACPI\PNP0F13\MOUSE_GUID\Device Parameters.

2. Double-click the EnableWheelDetection Value Name, a REG_DWORD data type, and set the data value to 2.

3. If the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\ACPI\PNP0F06\MOUSE_GUID\Device Parameters key exists, Double-click the EnableWheelDetection Value Name, a REG_DWORD data type, and set the data value to 2.
