6. Do I need to install extra mouse drivers to use the Anir mouse?
A: You do not have to use extra drivers or software for the combined USB + ps/2 models (that includes all optical models). If you have one of the older 3 button models (USB only or without USB plug) you can install the Anir mouse utility to get third button functionality. Check the software download page to see which operating systems and models this software supports.

7. Can I use the the Anir Mouse on an Apple Macintosh?
A: If you have a newer Mac with USB support you use the USB models. An older model for Mac ADB may still be in stock – ask your dealer. We do not have any software for Macintosh computers. To make best use of the additional buttons we recommend the shareware product USB overdrive which can be found on http://www.usboverdrive.com/.

8. Can I use the the Anir Mouse on a Unix Workstation?.
A: If your Unix Workstation can use a Microsoft 2 button mouse, you can also use the Anir mouse.

9. Can I use the mouse connector adapter I already have on an Anir mouse?
A: No, you can only use the adapter included with the mouse. If the mouse is delivered without any adapter then you can not use an adapter.

10. Can I use the Anir Mac mouse with the VirtualPC software emulator?
A: We have not tested this ourself, but one of our user did so. To make it work you need to do some changes in the “Virtual PC” preferences menu.
