hello

can I have x-mouse in windows xp?

X11 is better for fingers.
Copy with mouse.
Paste with mouse.
Focus without clicks.
Raise and lower windows.
So called X-Mouse.

Sure. You could download: http://www.mdgx.com/files/XMOUSE2K.ZIP or could execute the following ahk code:
SPI_SETACTIVEWINDOWTRACKING = 0x1001
SPIF_UPDATEINIFILE = 1
SPIF_SENDCHANGE = 2

; Turn On Mouse Focus Follow Cursor
DllCall("SystemParametersInfo",UInt,SPI_SETACTIVEWINDOWTRACKING,UInt,0,UInt,1,UInt,SPIF_UPDATEINIFILE | SPIF_SENDCHANGE)

Check out the Window Manipulation section of this url http://www.autohotke...=Script_Listing
for more details on xmouse and linux like behaviour using ahk.

Of course, with ahk you can customize the mouse buttons to do anything you want. Browse around the script catalogue and modify to your needs.

from its README:

XMouse2000 [XMouse2K.exe] 32-bit for Windows 98/2000/ME adds XMouse GUI
functionality: Mouse Focus, AutoRaise and proper Delay.


so it does only the 1/5 of what xmouse is
this is what tweakui does too

what about the rest features of xmouse?

According to your definition of xmouse it does half of what you want :)

Perhaps if you were more specific about what features you are looking for. Are you wanting a utility or some ahk code. This is a place to get help with ahk, perhaps you might want to look in the Utilities and Resources forum.

Have you looked in the scripts section for the behaviour you are after - Particularly niftywindows or something like it.

Have you tried to code something yourself? Changing the default behaviour of mouse buttons is fairly trivial for ahk. Have a look at the tutorial and examples in the manual/documentation.

BTW: xmouse2k works on XP too.

he is wondering mostly about the highlight copy and paste functions.

You can script LButton up to check the current mouse cursor (I think) and have it issue a ^c under certain circumstances.

Pasting is simple:
MButton::
Send, ^v
Return

; Make scroll lock enable/disable x-windows tracking

;

~ScrollLock::

	; Turn On Mouse Focus Follow Cursor, iff ScrollLock enabled

	SLStatus := GetKeyState("ScrollLock", "T")

	SPI_SETACTIVEWINDOWTRACKING = 0x1001

	SPIF_UPDATEINIFILE = 1

	SPIF_SENDCHANGE = 2

	DllCall("SystemParametersInfo",UInt,SPI_SETACTIVEWINDOWTRACKING,UInt,0,UInt,SLStatus,UInt,SPIF_UPDATEINIFILE | SPIF_SENDCHANGE)

return
