Wireless mouse question


I have a Microsoft Wireless Comfort Keyboard 1.0A model 1027, a Microsoft Wireless Mouse 2.0 model 1008, and a Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop Receiver 3.0A model 1029. These all came packaged together.

The install CD has Intellitype Pro 5.2 keyboard software, and Intellipoint 5.2 mouse software.

I've been unable to determine if this setup will work with the Windows Vista Premium 64 bit operating system.

I haven't found any updated drivers specifically for Vista.

Can anybody steer me to that info? Thanks

Thanks for the link; I think I've got the correct files. But I'm not sure how to proceed. Should I run the files before hooking up the keyboard and mouse?

FYI, you don't need the software. Just plug 'em in and Windows will auto detect and auto load the drivers. And if Windows does not have the drivers you will get prompted for them. All you need is the drivers.

Thanks to tmarks for the link to the drivers and the advice. Mouse and keyboard are working OK. Thanks to TonyT: I was pretty sure I just needed the drivers; I was looking in the wrong place. Thanks again.
