    Hello

    While trying to install the software for Microsoft Intellipoint 4.1 ( Intellimouse ) I got the following error message half way through " Error1101. Error reading from file C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\_is2013\1033.MST. Verify that the file exixsts and that you can access it. "

    I went into Find > Files or Folders but could not find _is 2013 and 1033.MST Any help in finding these files will be helpful. Thank you.

    Regards
    Hasmukh Doshi

    Don't EVER install ANY bundled mouse software. They are more harm than good. Mouse is plug-and-play and doesn't need any additional software. If it ain't broke, don't fix it! B)

    is it ps2 or usb port?do you have any other pointing devices connected?
    it's recommended to uninstall other mouse drivers and mouse software before installing intelpoint software.
    i'm using intelipoint mouse on ps2 port no problems installing software at all.

    If you have a Intelli(whatever) mouse from M$, you do need the Intellipoint software as it gives you some special options for the buttons and stuff that the normal mouse stuff included with windows doesn't...

    @ the original poster
    What OS are you using that your gettin that error message with??

    You basically said exactly what I did about what the intellipoint software does


    but anyway....the original poster wasn't asking if we thought they should use the intellipoint software or not, they were just asking why that error was coming up and how to stop it from happening again..

    ahh acualy u said that u do need the sw with "do" in bold letters
    what i said was that he basicly didnt need it at all
    but ether way ur right he was looking for an anser as to how to install it so too that end hdoshi
    it sounds like u might have a bad floppy u might try to get the Software from the MS sight
    also if ur running xp u might have to be logged in as admin to too do it
    but note u dont have too install the software to get it to work just fine

    My point exactly. Don't install it if you don't need it. Windows DOES let you assign the extra buttons via the Mouse control panel.
