    I have a laptop with a touchpad in which i have custom configurations, but when i have the laptop docked i have a MS trackball explorer. I install both drivers with their setup packages but when i go to control panel and click on the mouse option I am only able to control one device through the config window depending on which software i installed last... Is there any way i can access both config windows (intellipoint for my trackball explorer) and the alps config window for my touchpad?????

    yeah you can have them working fine with the drivers installed... but if they are different brands you cant access the custom device config panel for each device....

    If you have two MS mice you can control both through the intellipoint window, but if you have a logitech and an MS mouse with custom (non-default) button settings it will mess with the logitech mouse default configs as well and you cant change them back unless you reinstall the logitech drivers so you can acces the config panel but then you wont be able to access the intellipoint config panel.
