Moure: Utility to swap your mouse buttons

with 3 comments


Moure is a small utility to swap your mouse buttons. As we know Windows
system already supports mouse buttons switching, but it has the following
1) All mouses including touchpad are to be swapped.
2) In remote desktop (mstsc), will turn back to what it's designed.

Moure overcomes these 2 limitations. It enables you to only swap buttons
for a particular one or any specified mouses. Other mouse devices or
your touchpad are left unchanged.

Moure remembers your settings in registry, and it automatically reloads
after system booting.

Mostly I'm using my left hand to control the mouse (designed for right
hand). Recently, trying to relieve my left hand from pains of carpal
tunnel syndrome, I bought a new left-hand mouse (Minicute EZ2), then
got troubles to get accustomed to the left & right confusions.

I'm not a guy of IFIXIT-style, just cann't weld any jump wires. But
as a software engineer, I can make software work as requested, even
weirdly. Then moure was out, proving again the proverb:

-- if all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail --

Requirements: VS2008 and WDK

Moure is a kernel mouse class filter driver for Windows. So besides
buttons swapping, it can do everything upon HID events for mouses.

    The driver may crash your system and ruin your data unexpectedly,
    since there might be software conflicts and I could only test it
    on some of the popular platforms. You should use it with care and
    use it at your own risk!
