View Full Version : I'm stumped, so is google. Logitech Laser - newdev.dll error

So I have a mx 1000 laser mouse and was updating the softare from logitech's site. I downloaded the new "setpoint.exe", installed, and get this every single time once it reaches 100% installation.

This does not seem to be a logitech problem, rather a windows problem. I have uninstalled all the logitech stuff, reinstalled, even deleted the mouse from device manager, installed default mouse drivers etc. Anyone have any ideas (besides a system restore)?

So does the mouse not work?

Are you getting a driver conflict on the system device menu?

Did the original drivers work?

If it's working fine the I would say forget it and move on.

But here is a generic answer that seems to help this type of error: Make sure your virus software is disabled before you start installation.

Bare bones functionality works. Rt, left click, scroll up down.

Everything else does not. And the mouse movement sucks withs with this driver - I have 3 monitors and need a lot of mouse speed.

I found a vague mention on the net about someone having a similar problem with a Logitech IR Trackball. He uninstalled the software, updated his BIOS, and reinstalled and everything worked. Might be worth a shot.

Got it.

I created another administrator account, right clicked the setup.exe file and chose run as...
then ran as different user. Viola!
