FreeDOS Installation

The Free Mouse-Driver CuteMouse from the FreeDOS-project is running well and needs much less memory than compaqs original one. So I would advise you to use the CuteMouse-Driver.

If you although want to install the original compaq/logitech mousedriver, provided by SP1714.EXE, you can't do this directly under FreeDOS - the installer of the mouse-software won't work under FreeDOS.

  • Create the floppy with sp1714.exe
  • Reboot with a MS-DOS or Win95 bootdisk
  • Insert the sp1714-floppy
  • Command "install"
  • The DOS mouse-drivers are installed. Reboot and customize the mouse-driver with the tool mousecc.exe.
