Win10 driver for Magellan SMPLUS3 XT USB

Post by Kakalake » Thu Apr 01, 2021 3:42 am

Hello everybody !
I just bought a used 3D-mouse. It’s a SMPlus3 XT USB from 2004.
On the 3Dconnexion website, there is a driver fom 2009, but it only support Windows Vista. Is there a solution to use it with Windows 10 and Inventor 2019 ?

Too old, not economically viable(no longer profitable).

Windows Vista is from 2006 and there is a driver for it. Unfortunately, this driver doesn't work with Windows 10.
Windows 7 is from 2009, it's only 5 years older than the mouse and nothing.

I can understand that 3Dconnexion want to sell their products, making drivers for old products doesn't help and cost money. But I can't believe there is no unofficial driver or something else. Nobody change a working 300$ mouse just because the operating system have to be changed.

I will look further and let you know if I found something.

Only if your time is cheap with low return of investment. Time is an invaluable asset, invest your time wisely.
