Are there any application that can talk to the mouse( USB mouse). I am interested in reading the HID reports in the USB mouse using the HID APIs.

If i try to use Createfile() for this purpose i get an invalid handle and the GetLastError() would give System error code 5 which is nothing but access to the device denied.

Any pointers or direction will be appreciated.

Hi,

i have had no luck in solving this problem.

The OS opens the mouse and the keyboard exclusively. If this is the case then how is it that you can use some toggle key applications to toggle the numlock, capslock keys on the keyboard.

Is anyone able to dig into the problem more.....
