Spaceball4000FLX Serial and spaceNavigator on same computer

Post by vogtbran » Wed Apr 04, 2007 9:58 am

I am currently using a SpaceBall - serial port connection at work and I just bought a SpaceNavigator. I installed the new software and the SpaceNavigator worked but my SpaceBall did not. I uninstalled the new software and installed the old v2-8-2 software and my SpaceBall is working again. What will happen when I plug my SpaceNavigator into my computer? Can I switch back and forth between these 2 products?

FYI - I am not trying to run these products at the same time.

Hi vogtbran,

Unfortunately you perfectly timed the crossroads between device support. 2.8.2 was done before the SpaceNavigator was anything more than a dream, so it doesn't support the SN.

OTOH, 3.x which does support the SN, doesn't support serial devices.

The only solution is to do the uninstall/install procedure that you are doing.
