Post subject:  Windows Serial Mouse Disable Procedure

If you plug FreeEMS into a windows box without doing this, it will be detected as a serial mouse, and click/move wildly ad infinitum or until unplugged.

A youtube video of similar behaviour: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7IP4_yKdvLg

I believe this is the technique I used once to do the same thing:

Open registry, and find this:

Code:
Location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\sermouse
Key: Start
Value: 3

Then do this:

Quote:
Change Value to 4, which is Disabled and it will stop this problem occurring.

Or use regedit:

Code:
REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\sermouse" /V Start /T REG_DWORD /F /D 4
