Easy to set up, does everything I need it to do and more
None so far
Easy to set up, works great with every mouse I've used with it so far. Includes tons of premade options but also allows you to create your own action for each button if what you want isn't in their list. I use it to change my "back" and "forward" buttons on my mice to be "delete" and "escape" since I work with autocad a lot and it's allowed my cheaper mice to be programmed like a gaming mouse if I wanted. I've have zero issues with the program throughout the year I've had it and the 6 or so mice I've used with it.
didn't work enough to say
Installed and got some error about a server. Uninstalled the thing.
A regular old wireless laser notebook mouse turns into a gaming mouse (I get 35 commands out of 7 buttons using hotkeys, or 45 if I include scroll up and down). I also use it a lot for Acrobat Pro to map highlighting and editing tools for reviewing academic articles.
Bug with MS Word where it first causes pc to type whatever button is being pressed repeatedly, and then crashes. I don't even have an X-Mouse profile for Word, really not sure why this happens. Sticky hotkeys sometimes get activated for no reason. Mapping doesn't work for some games with launchers (the buttons get mapped to the launcher not the game).
Version 2.6 has been out for a while now on the publisher's website. Definitely knocks the socks off most native software. Really makes your mouse much more versatile, but it's still buggy and I'm looking for an alternative. BTW, for those complaining of bloatware, check again it may well be C|NET's not X-Mouse.
Think of about 10 more pros of your own, chances are they are true of this product.
Literally, none, and I don't say that often.
An incredible piece of software, I have multiple profiles for gaming, work, browsing etc. It is one of the first things I download on a new PC. This little guy is a software partner for life.
This program is great, it allows you to tweak your mouse in all sorts of ways and also allows you to save 5 profiles, which is fantastic if you also use your mouse for gaming.
I would say the only con I found is that page up and page down are not apparent in the drop down lists for mouse buttons, but you can still set them with the simulated keys option.
Great and simple to use, expanding the flexibility of your mouse.
I hope it's worth the time it took to uninstall all the adware and hijacks.
I tried to be careful to NOT click the "OK to install software buttons," but even so it installed something called We care, Sweet packs, and Top arcade hits, as well as changing my browser search default and home page. Be warned that you will have to uninstall all of these, which took me 15-20 minutes because it kept being difficult. I hoped using CNet would make this less of a problem, but apparently they like to mess with your computer, too.

That's the "CNET Installer Enabled" you see on the download button. It has nothing whatsoever to do with the actual program being installed - it's simply how download.com pays its bills.
-VERY versatile once you understand it
-Specific apps are almost endless
-Program to turn on n off, then program a control key for a specific function
-I had a fear of possible contamination, but if its on c|net its safe...
-I had to find the programming code for my specific app online and it wasn't easy to find...
I am a part-time gamer who was tired of having to tap my arrow key/mouse key during heavy action sessions, this has literally saved my index finger...Its starting to grow back LOL...
All I really needed was my center button to work as a back button since my Logitech software crapped out and won't reinstall properly. I just don't have time to figure out why it is not working, but now I don't need to because X-Mouse does the job.
none that I can think of.
I downloaded this program because I had to upgrade to System 7 when I got a new computer. My older wireless keyboard and mouse from Microsoft worked but the Intellimpouse program didn't. X-mouse fills the gap and more
none that I hve found yet
if you have a multi-buttoned mouse - USE IT
i suppose it's not needed if you have button mapping soft came with your mouse
Sometimes the software that your mouse came with just not good. Use this one!
