Troubleshooting

Immersion TouchWare Desktop 2.9 is not fully compatible with windows Vista or windows Seven, but it is required to activate the force feedback. Do not install "Microsoft Active Accessibility", click the "cancel" button or the "ignore" button. We recommend you to disable the automatic startup with windows in the Immersion TouchWare Desktop Control Panel or remove the Immersion Desktop entries (IDesktop.2.5) from your registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\

The file "DisableTouchWareDesktopStartup.reg" can help to disable the automatic startup.
The Registry will prompt the user for permission to modify the key before proceeding.
You can ignore this Alert. Click "Yes" button.

You can download the following registry key to Disable automatically TouchWare Desktop Startup:

DisableTouchWareDesktopStartup.reg

 


Issue: Mouse Speed Reduced When In Chrome

Solution found by g0pher666: Open the MouseWare utility, go to the Motion Tab and unselect "Disable acceleration in games" checkbox, click Apply & OK,
the slow mouse movement disappears, and normal mouse acceleration resumes.

Alternative solution: use Iron browser instead of Chrome.


Issue: Error Message when Entering Standby
Explanation: This event occurs because your PC BIOS is not fully ACPI
(Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) compliant.

Issue: iFeel mouse freezes after computer returns from standby
Explanation: There is a problem with Advanced Power Management (APM).

Solution found by BjornEricsson

There can several factors causing this problem, so here is my list:

1. Check the USB mouse settings, click Start, click Run, type DEVMGMT.MSC, click OK.
Double-click to expand Mouse settings. Double-click on the Mouse. Click Power Management.
Uncheck the box "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power."
(Note from iFeelPixel: you can also try to clear the check box "Allow this device to bring the computer out from standby".)

2. Check the USB root hub, click Start, click Run, type DEVMGMT.MSC, click OK.
Double-click to expand Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Double-click USB Root Hub.
Click Power Management. Uncheck the box "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power."
(See previous note from iFeelPixel)

2. Check your MouseWare version and head over to http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=315664 for a possible solution.

3. As a last resort you CAN try and change the registry (which you do on your own risk), then go to Run, type in "Regedit.exe", then open the registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Logitech\MouseWare\CurrentVersion\Technical\APMMode and set APMMode="Off"
(Note from iFeelPixel: this works only on windows 98 or Windows Me)

Hopefully this should resolve your problem.

 


Others iFeel Mouse Issues (Instructions found in a previous version of MouseWare)

If your iFeel mouse does not function, or does not provide feedback support, please try the following:

1) Make sure your system meets the system requirements for iFeel mice. Windows 98, Windows Millennium, Windows 2000, or windows XP, and an available USB port is required.

2) Try unplugging, then re-plugging the iFeel mouse from the USB port.

3) If you are connecting the iFeel mouse to a USB hub, make sure the hub is self-powered (i.e. the hub is powered by an external power supply). Because the iFeel mouse is a high- powered device, it will not work with bus-powered hubs, such as those found on some USB keyboards. If you have problem getting the mouse to work on a hub, try connecting the mouse directly to the USB port on the system.

4) Open Mouse Properties, and select the iFeel tab. Make sure the "Enabled" option is selected and the Strength slider is not set to 0 % or another minimum setting. Test the iFeel support by hovering the cursor over the Preview icon. You should feel the vibration from the mouse.

5) Try exiting and re-starting the Immersion Desktop software. Right-click on the Immersion Desktop icon in the System tray and select Exit. Then click on "Start", "Programs", and "Immersion Desktop".

6) Make sure iFeel support (Immersion Desktop) is installed. If there is no "Immersion Desktop" icon on the Programs menu, re-run the MouseWare installation from the CD-ROM. At the Setup Options box, make sure there is a checkmark in the box for "iFeel Support" (de-select the MouseWare option if it has been already been installed), then proceed with the installation.

7) Try exiting and restarting EM_EXEC.EXE. To do this, go to "Start", then select "Run". On the "Open" line type the following:

"C:\Program Files\Logitech\MouseWare\System\EM_EXEC.EXE" /q

To restart EM_EXEC.EXE, go to "Start", "Settings", then "Control Panel". Now double click on the Mouse icon. Move the mouse cursor over icons, buttons, etc. and see if you feel the feedback.

 


Detection Issues with USB Mice (Instructions found in a previous version of MouseWare)

Please note that USB mice are only supported under Windows 98, Windows Millennium, Windows 2000, Windows XP.

If your USB mouse is not detected properly or does not functions, please use the following steps to check the Mouse icon under the Device Manager.

Click on "Start", "Settings", then "Control Panel". Double click on the System icon and select the Device Manager tab. Open the Mouse icon by clicking on the (+) plus sign and verify there is a mouse icon that states, "HID-compliant mouse", and another entry that states the name of your USB device. If there are any errors reported on these icons by exclamation points or red X's, highlight these icons and click the "Remove" button. Once these icons have been removed, click the "Refresh" button and allow Windows to re-detect the pointing device. Open the Mouse icon again and verify that there are no errors reported. Power down the computer system and restart Windows. Test the USB device to see if it is now functional.
