OK, I have seen this topic many times, but could not find the solution anywhere. If there is one, I appologize for raising the same issue again.
I am currently using a G5 Laser Mouse (corded) on a Windows 7 (x64) machine. I have the latest version of all the drivers, including SetPoint installed and running. The mouse works great for all the tasks, but gaming - where it refuses to recognize certain buttons.
The pinned suggestion topic recommends mapping "Generic Button" to the buttons I want to use for games. Unfortunately, the buttons in question do not give me the option. I am talking about buttons 5 and 6 - tilting the scroll wheel left and right. The only options present are: Left/Right Scroll, Cruise Up/Down, Forward/Back, Keystroke Assignment and Other (none on the list feature "Generic Button".
I had it working on my old computer, using an older version of SetPoint, but with the current install this functionality seems to be gone.
I have tried assigning custom button configurations using Advanced settings and pointing the driver to the game exe files, then re-mapping the buttons to custom keystorkes - but to no avail. SetPoint does not seem to detect the games running and does not change the configuration.
I would appreciate any help in this matter.

I have been a supporter of logitech for about 12 yrs now buying nothing but their product, I too WAS having problems with my g5 mouse and windows 7 64 bit. I looked all over the web at forums for a solution and seen on a couple of forums where someone from logitech replied and made out like it was the user not the product causing the problem and that pissed me off for a better choice of words and I continued to try and use my mouse but could not even play a game for it acting like it was being plugged up and unplugged from my computer and stop working for periods of time while trying to game or even surf the web so after the reply from the logitech guy on the forums making out like the mouse was not the issue and the way the mouse was acting i took it upon myself to make the mouse cordless and threw it in the trash. I also have a logitech g15 keyboard that works fine but it to will be replaced by a different brand, I will be switching to the razor mouse and not really made up my mind yet on the keyboard but i will say one thing, I am very disappointed in logitech and I will never support their product again, after many years of me giving them my hard earned money they have let me along with the rest of their customers down.

Unfortunately that does not seem to solve the problem, either. I actually do have the option disabled at the moment, and games still don't recognize the buttons properly
