The setpoint's logitech sofware version 6.32 which is the latest version can not be installed in my win 7 professional x64 OS. After going through the setup it appears in the list of windows programs as Set Point 6.32 (using the Programs and Feautures module in the Control Panel) but does not shows in the C:\Programs Files neither in the C:\Programs Files (x86) directories. I was using setpoint ver 6.30 with the Logitech M705 mouse.But after finding that the mouse moved erratically when trying to scroll I tried the newer version 6.32. A red warning appeared during the setup telling that the setup failed to install, but try again. I tried twice, with the same warning. I unistalled set point 6.3 and try again the 6.32 with no sucees.

Setpoint Version 4.x forgot about the horizontal scroll from my LX3 mouse.
Rather than re-install V4 from th CD that came with the mouse, I downloaded 6.32.
Worked fine for a couple of hours. Then, mouse clicks had no effect. Skipping details about floundering around, I alt-tabbed my way into an editor (emacs), and discovered the editor was receiving repeated keypad-leftarrow input.
Rebooting made the problem go away for a couple of hours. I did this several times. One time, the repeating imaginary keystroke was keypad-rightarrow, another time there was no apparent imaginary input.

I unplugged the keyboard, which had no effect.

I uninstalled Setpoint V6, and the problem has not recurred in several hours of running.

True, the pathology could be in some other software that somehow reaches into Setpoint's data.

I'm running with no Setpoint, which means there is no horizontal scroll, which is why I bought the LX3.

(I have two theories: Windows resents the Logitech mouse, and attacks it. Or Logitech resents my IBM keyboard, and fabricates bogus keystrokes.)

I've been using SetPoint and a G5 mouse for a couple of years, and the only complaint I have is that I have not found a way, through SetPoint's interface, to disable the BlueTooth service it installs. I have no BlueTooth devices, so it is useless to me, and yet I cannot remove it. Aside from that, the software offers good features and functionality (even though it's a little bloated).

If you use Logitech Setpoint, don't miss out on Überoptions add-on for Setpoint. This little util will allow you to customize button/wheel settings for every program you use. Can send custom keyboard codes to different programs. It makes sence that wheelbutton left/right in Firefox should have another meaning than in e.g. Word. Get Überoptions at http://uberoptions.net/ (My rating here is WITH the Überoption add-on!)

Here are the changelog from 6.0 to 6.1 :
The download size has been reduced by approximately 60%. This has been achieved by streamlining the code and removing device pictures from the download package. SetPoint will automatically download pictures in the background for devices that are connected to your system.
SetPoint 6.1 includes the control panels for standard mice and keyboards (previously supported in SetPoint 4.x) and gaming mice (previously supported in SetPoint 5.x). This reduces duplication of system components, resulting in a smaller overall installation size.
The SetPoint control panel for standard mice and keyboards has been updated with a new appearance.
Numerous bug fixes and stability enhancements have been made in SetPoint 6.1

Well, I've had the cordless MX laser mouse for many years with absolutely no problem. As far as the SetPoint software is concerned, XP, Vista and Windows 7 never needed it for my mouse to run perfectly. I also have the G15 Gaming Keyboard and 2.1 Logitech speakers. I will be upgrading these to the G19 Keyboard, the 7.1 Surround Gaming Headset and the newest gaming mouse. So, those of you who write of Logitech's quality simply have had bad luck or perhaps like to abuse your property a little too much. I stand behind the quality and options that Logitech products offer (though some, like the G19, come with a premium price tag). Being manufactured in China isn't a quality issue, though I would prefer that Logitech make its products in the Western Hemisphere, too.
Now I'm curious about all this negative hype over the Setpoint software and will install it just to see if you negative reviewers are 100% correct.
Later, after installation and use...the Setpoint software works just fine on my Windows 7, adds some nice options to my MX laser mouse and, wonderfully, doesn't conflict with the G15 software.

Following up on the review by AnClar, SetPoint 6.1 still does not fix the sensitivity issues with G5 mice, even though one of its primary fixes was supposed to be exactly that. You can see the large list of complaints in Logitech's support forums. 3months between releases, and the issue is still unresolved... incompetence at its finest.

AnClar

AnClar reviewed v6.00.68 on Mar 5, 2010

Windows 7 64-bit users BEWARE!! Do NOT install this release of SetPoint 6 if you use a G5 mouse! There is a bug in this release such that whatever sensitivity you set the mouse to, it goes to maximum sensitivity at bootup, when you enter certain applications (Ventrilo for one), and whenever it pleases. You have to manually recycle the sensitivity buttons on the mouse to fix it. Even so it is still only a temporary fix. There's a thread on the Loogitech forums about this.

This software is probably the worst crap I ever have met.

I bought a 4th Logitech mouse (this time a G5) after two of the 3 previous Logitech mice became too rapidly useless after a short time, (all made in CHINA of course)

I won't comment on the G5 mouse (I don't like it that much). But who on earth needs THAT MUCH bytes his computer, only for a mouse !?

The worst experience however not when you are using this crap, but it comes later at un-installation time. When you uninstall SetPoint , using a good uninstaller program REVO Uninstaller, after performing the buid-in uninstaller of Setpoint, the Revo program will (if you want to) search for "left-overs" in the Windows registry and on also on your harddisk.

I never encountered that much "left overs" in my whole life !! There must be between 3000 or 4000 registry entries left behind, which you have to remove one by one. Keeps you busy for some time.

My very old Microsoft roller mouse was stolen because it was a museum piece, BUT it was STILL working after 20 years of daily use. Compare this old mouse (plug-and-play avant la lettre) with todays garbage stuff "Made-in-China for Logitech" to understand what I mean.

Considering on top of this, the very poor attitudes of what Logitech calls "Support" (in belgium), I think I have seen enough.

I would give a negative rating (if it were possible) but it is impossible to go lower as one star here.

I just don't understand why I need BOTH setpoint.exe and setpoint.exe*32 running at the SAME time. Logitech have yet to reply to my message from about 3 weeks ago. Other than the fact I now have 2 setpoints.exe and KHALMNPR.exe taking a combined usage of 39,756k thats almost 40MEG just for keyboard drivers, they work as they should. SHAME about the MASSIVE waste of memory. My previouse keyboard (A4tech) took about 600-700K to do the SAME thing as these legitech drivers.

With XP Pro and Cordless Desktop® MX™ 3200 Laser (keyboard and mouse) installed I have had no problems with SetPoint 4.72 or any other version I've used. I'm not a big fan of SetPoint because there are so many things that can cause conflicts with it and generally do not have it installed. The keyboard and mouse work fine without it, but I recently found some uses for some of the special settings in SetPoint and reinstalled it and have had no problems with it; everything works great in every program I've used it in. I say if you don't need it don't install it.
The only problem I've had with Logitech is the G7; I was on my second and it crapped out after a year. They sent me a G9 as a replacement and now have to install a seperate version of SetPoint designed only for G9. They say SetPoint 5.10.203 will co-exist with 4.72; we will see.
Although I'm not a big fan of SetPoint I can't really give it less than a 5 because its always worked for me, but that may change soon.

I just successfully installed this package on Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server. 460 failed to install. Just being able to know when the batteries are low make it well worth the time involved in installing. I use the EX110 keyboard and mouse. BTW I am running SP2 of 2003 which uses the same kernel that the new Vista SP2 will be using. If I can have all the buttons on my mouse and keyboard working on Server, Vista and XP are a walk in the park. Good work Logitech.

Do NOT install this software. First, it's buggy. Second, it's not obvious how it can be removed. It doesn't show up in the Control Panel nor is a program group created with an uninstall option. Logitech should be flogged for this.

Update: the software has updated. Reinstalling and agreeing to download an update from Logitech seems to fix it.

I echo Qlib-- seems that before SetPoint, a lot more settings in Logitech peripherals were customizable.

As well this software needs a lot more work for laptops with touchpads n Synaptic software.

And i agree with all others re the driver download: dispense of the endless clicking of peripheral and OS versions, as there's mostly only one package regardless of language, OS, peripheral type and model. One has to guess which subcategory one's peripheral falls under... and not all models are listed always as well-- it's a discombobulated & very frustrating process until one wises up. Even worse, the direct support / downloads / drivers link & url keep changing and disappearing from main home page... what's up with that?
It's about time for a company of Logitech's stature to not only improve their website, but to more importantly-- develop an automated driver update AND as well an auto scan for peripheral.

i guess its cos they have all keyboards and such in it as well its big but having a built in update feature is pointless if u always have to get the SAME download.. its like nero.. .. if you only use burning rom and none of the other stuff.. to update that.. u still need a 180mb or so download.. but.. ah well.. guess thats what happens when the rich part of the world gets broadband..

im STILL annoyed that theres lots of settings you CANT change.. luckily theres modification tools like uberOptions that can do it for you..

and for heavens sake logitech.. CHANGELOGS PLEASE!..

I can't find any problems but...

Does Logitech plan to update the size of its Unified Driver package forever?

I won't give a rating above 4 until they do. It's a justifiable complaint, especially if you are just "updating" (Logitech downloads a whole new package based on the new version number, not if your device needs it).

Logitech should download the basic software which links back to Logitech and download ONLY the needed drivers as well as updating ONLY if the drivers for your product change. Is that so hard?

Logitechs not the only one. NVidia does the same thing and every month I checked to see if a newer version was out then I used Acrobat's search tool to search for my video card to see if there were any changes (you can actually cause problems with some drivers). Let's see true "Plug 'n Play" or rather "Plug and Forget"? Is this too much to ask?

(While Linux could do the things I ask, it would be much easier if Microsoft used Package management like Linux distros such as Linux do. I could probably walk away from Ubuntu for 2 years, then turn it on and it would update everything from the Kernal to the applications to the drivers. In the near future, Windows will be simply a second OS for playing games not yet made for Linux.)

Okay, I've had my rant but maybe somebody will listen.

@djurbino: Yes, at 54MB they seem to have well and truly lost the plot - considering the software is not even half useful as it comes.

For those that wish to make full use of the software, (i.e. fully programmable mouse buttons on a per program basis), then I recommend installing uberOptions, http://rlowens.googlepages.com/ Current beta works well with Setpoint 4.24

Until Logitech get off their collective butts and give me what uberOptions can in less than 10MB, then at best it's very mediocre software considering how much they charge for their mice/keyboards.

The software is fine. Piuty the letters rub off the keyboards.

For the dolt complaining about battery life, I suggest further investigation. I did not know they made "gold" batteries, which can be the only explanation for the silly price you quote for a year's supply. My batteries last six months or more for the keyboard and at least as long for the mouse.

Actually, I use a trackball. Which raises an issue with the software. It does not play well with odd combinations of legacy (old) hardware.

That means this is the worst in the value for money department.

Ever heard of rechargeable batteries??? I use cheap rechargeables and and they almost last a month before I put in a new set in my mouse. As for the keyboard I can't remember the last time I changed those. They last at least two months in it. Before you ask I do a lot of typing and clicking!

As for SetPoint? It does the job well. They seem to have corrected a problem I had where it would "forget" the speed settings I wanted.

This is great software (unusual for logitech) which now gives Mx1000 power management options.

Unfortunatly it took quite a bit to install: 1st a complete uninstall of all setpoint software was neccessary - which required a complete uninstall of SpySweeper 5.5.

2nd antivirus software needed to be OFF ie inactive.

3rd after the initial install the program needed to modify itself via the internet - a 40 mb install pared down to a 11.10 mb install specific to the devices on my system.

If this last step does not occure or you do not allow it to occure the software installs as discribed in the previous post.

It gets a 5 because it's full featured (no longer need to install uber-options) and functions stably exactly as I need it to.

If the next update install is as convoluted... Major Downgrade!

Version 4 in WinXP SP2. After reading all the "disaster" posts on the Logitech forums, I decided I needed to try for myself. But first, because of all the problems others were having after Version 4 bombed, I did a full backup of my HD before testing 4.0.

I am glad I did. I needed it. Install went OK and the mouse worked ... but in the Logitech Setpoint control panel, the buttons could no longer be configured and like so many others, my expensive laser mouse (both cordless and corded) had become a basic $10 mouse with two buttons and no extras.

Logitech should immediately pull these drivers and fix them before re-release. There are just too many folks on their forums with serious problems that are unable to get back to an earlier stable version of Logitech drivers short of reinstalling their operating systems. OUCH!

I tried using only the driver part without all the bells and whistles and I wasn't satisfied with the stability, too. It's a load of you-know-what and a great pitty, because all of their periferals are simply the best there is be it mice, keyboards or cameras.

I'm just using any Logitech mouse with Windows drivers in Windows, with no problems whatsoever. Nevertheless, the taste is bitter, because i'd really like to change the assignement of some buttons. Can we get a small 200-300KB app for changing the buttons assignements, please? I don't want anything else, and I mean ANYTHING else. Just buttons assignements because this, what you offer us loyal users is a disgrace.

There were always known problems with mice drivers in windows be it Logitech or MS, but it's not getting any better, it's just getting worse.

Fire the whole software department and send them to sell burgers.

Nice Update. Works well on Vista. I can also say that 3.3 never gave me any of the problems other reviewers have mentioned.
Perhaps some of those people who had problems should download this version for themselves and then review it, or perhaps some people would like to stick with DOS.

I have to agree with the other user below, I too bought the Logitech Marble Mouse (and also the Trackman Wheel) but find SetPoint a total software disaster. I really do like the feel of the Marble Mouse, but the SetPoint software causes ALL SORTS of problems with my applications. For example, it slows down DocuPrinter (a product by Neevia) to the point where it's unusable. Other assorted applications malfunction in various ways. Remove SetPoint, and the problems are gone. Unfortunately, that does away with the programmable buttons on the Marble Mouse too. It's a crying shame Logitech can't release a software driver/interface that works along side other applications. And this version is only for Vista, which has it's own instability issues!

I have just bought a Logitech Marble Mouse and downloaded and installed Setpoint330 from Logitech.
It causes lots of problems, freezes mouse buttons, it has upset Outlook link operations, and although good for setting the button functions I have uninstalled it.
I have loaded the Logitech mouse driver from the suplied CD and this does allow me to set some button functions (click both L&R buttons for scrolling).
Overall, less than impressed with Setpoint but pleased with the mouse.

I've been using MS mice for the last ten years, and I'm amazed at how a really great mouse as the Logitech MX 400 comes with such a piece of crap as SetPoint.

"Universal scroll" hides middle button clicks from Firefox, "Autoscroll" is plain horrible in certain programs, middle button has to be pressed two times in Firefox to work, no per application assigments, lack of creative functions...

Isn't there an alternative to this garbage?

I was planning of buying an MX Revolution at home, but no thanks.

Edit: fortunately there is an alternative, check out uberOptions (http://www.mstarmetro.net/~rlowens/)

After install of this version (prompted by logitech's automatic updates,) the Microsoft Natural KEYBOARD attached to it stopped working! The left control and the "o" keys stopped working. uninstalling these drivers fixed the issue. After I uninstalled I got error messages in Outlook about missing dll's, that required a repair install.

Logitech: great hardware/crappy software

It makes Logitech QuickCam software (yes their own software) fail once a minute. Terrible.

I uninstalled SetPoint and am not aware that I am missing any useful features at all. There was no documentation was provided with SetPoint, so I am left in the dark to figure out why I was recommended to install it in the first place.

this software does what is should, i have a Logitech G5 Laser Mouse and it does improve the accuracy of the mouse, the default windows based is slower then the setpoint one,

as far i know this works 100% correct on x64 windows
am running xp x64 with latest patches now and no problems what so ever, it had some problems before
but if you use the x64 version everything is fine :)

I'll ask right now. What's wrong with a simple windows dialog type driver setup interface?!
There's really no need for all that fancy garbage.

That aside, it does work a little better than the last release I had (3.1.1 I think) which would occasionally forget all of my settings on startup, or simply fail to start.

If not for the sheer size of the download through the incomprehensible need for a skinned interface, I'd give this a bit higher rating.
And hopefully the update actually works this time.
My old software tried to update before I came here and told me there was no update available. Go figure...

Unless you have a Logitech mouse with battery packs that need monitoring and adjustable DPI settings - like the G7 Laser- you probably do NOT need SetPoint. But with SetPoint you have more control over custom game settings and more, along with low-batt notifications. Works great, may be oversized for its purpose but no performance hit on any decent rig. B+

1 point for actually being able to customize buttons. Bloated software, also responsible for the windows log off error: "dwwin.exe failed to intialize because the computer is shutting down." Really bad :/

A 3 from me.
I only use the logitech driver because it lets me configure every button on my MX 1000.
If MS generic drivers let me do that, this one would be history.
Setpoint is bloated and contains inexplicable ad links. Granted you can disable the ads on install, but they're still simply useless ads that are a watse of resources. Besides, why would a huge company like Logi need to install ads?
Only thing other than configuring all buttons that I'm happy with is that it's nothing like the Harmony Remote drivers where you have to log in to use it and all stages of configuration are web based questions. Eeeeeeewwwww!

Edit:
On a second look, this version didn't have any options for adware, and didn't install any shortcuts for them. It pays to pay attention I guess. My apologies to Logi for that. Still bloated for a mouse driver though.

Am new to the forum, so I don't have any great insight. However I would like to add my 2 cents. I purchased a V400 laser notebook mouse. Love the mouse, but windows would not always detect the receiver, and when the mouse went into hibernation (at irregular intervals), it required 2 to 3 shakes to wake it up. Logitech support said it was the usb port. That was nonsense, but logitech support requires a forum of its own.

I downloaded the 3.01 driver, and voila, the problems mentioned above went away. There is still a lag after the mouse sits, but nothing like it was with the previous release. Looks like the changes were under the hood. Take it easy guys.

Drivers for relatively simple devices should not consume more than 10MB of disk space, period. I don't care what kind of interface they have, it's just bloated beyond a point. However, these do work just fine for my mouse and I haven't had any real complaints. Much better than the old MouseWare drivers, that's for sure.

Should be noted this is for the new generation of mice-- all others still get the 9.79.1.Build 25 Mouseware last updated 2½ years ago...

Edit: yah, EZH... they make one click a million screens/prompts to choose the proper mouse model & operating system, then give everyone the same entire bloat package anyway: all models & all OS starting with DOS included.
And to this day no automatic updater-- except for the background-running Logitech News, which only informs there is an update available.....
You know-- that's not deserving of a perfect score--so down we go.
