Thank you very much! Indeed it fixes the problem! Why not to uncomment this by default or add an option in settings (like 'ignore software mouse')?

Some users need it so I don't want to just uncomment it out. I've implemented an option but haven't fully tested it yet for release (and its not obvious what it does, so I need to reword the option and add context help)... mostly just a matter of free time :(

Hello.

I was looking for a program like Ethermouse for some time. It seems that Lenovo is using a version of Synaptics Ultranav that doesn't support different configurations for both trackpad and another mice.

So I downloaded Ethermouse and, although it looks impressive, I wonder if it is possible to change the click lock for each mouse one have on their system. This could be very handy.

Thank you very much!

The 0.76 beta has "ignore zero device" in the advanced menu. Works well for me, I use AHK's click command. gwarble links it on page 11. At the time the link pointed to 0.741 beta but now it's 0.76 beta.

Thanks Maave, yes the Beta version has the "ignore zero device" option in the advanced menu, one of these days I will get around to updating the main release.

macrellus26: the Beta version also has an option "toggle click lock", I don't remember how well it was implemented but try it out:

I checked this on VirusTotal before downloading. And it's flagged for a few things. https www.virustotal.com /gui/file/4a39533c73ff3f38185b556f3f4d5f5ece27caba69071e905d2905e00d2f9b37/detection Broken Link for safety

@gwarble Can you provide insight as to why? And why the flagged behavior can be ignored?

Sorry for the copy-and-paste answer but basically this:
Thanks for the feedback, its a known and ongoing false positive 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.

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 vary by almost nothing.
I hope that helps answer your question. You have to be the one to determine if the flagged behavior can be ignored, but I can tell you for sure that I personally have never put anything malicious in my own released code.
