Just baught the G500 and so far im satisfyed, but the only thing that stands in the way for total pleasure is the profiles not switching to the program i made them for.
I have followed the manual and made:
- A new profile.
- Made some single keystroke macros (which works great).
- Set the program .EXE (game) tied to the new profile.
- Chose "program sensitive profile switching" to change depending on program running.
But when i start the game there is no macro functions and the "general" profile is running.
What i notice is the only thing that works is that i manually set the "mouse memory" onto that specific profile and then it works fine. Bit annoying to have to open SetPoint everytime and set that memory to the profile i need as you can imagine. I had many Logitechs in the past and they all worked without this built in memory where i always set many profiles which worked right off the bat.
Hopefully i just messed up somewhere and this indeed works as it should.
EDIT: Wanted to add something about the mouse memory. In the profiles overview it says on the profile i atm have "saved" into the mouse that it is in fact "profile saved to mouse memory". What i dont understand is why cant all my profiles be saved to memory and just one at the time? I think this is maybe why the program switching doesnt work?
Good mouse so far but this is a tad annoying having to open SetPoint everytime before doing something.
EDIT: Just found out the program sensitive switching of profiles doesnt work at all. When i turn it off thats the only time the profiles work in game, and i have to change it all manually. One single profile goes into memory and thats it. What was so bad with previous profile saving that worked in tons of games? And you just saved the profiles in the mouse software - done. Nvm that. I hope there is some setting i just done wrong.
SetPoint v5.40 (installed 6.15 and i got 5.40. Was on 5.20 pre 6.15 installation).
Regards and thanks

Starcraft 2, ARMA2, Supreme Commander 2 etc. I added bunch of games but it wont switch for any game. To me it seems this function just doesnt work and is a major dissapointment.
And no official answer on this? Like if this problem is known? Come on logitech your a good company in my book and this is the first time i encounter a real problem. If this mouse/software cant switch profiles its a rather big flaw.
EDIT: Starcraft 2 does only use 1 EXE and no launcher so i attached that EXE to the profile. Same with all other games. No switch. General profile running at all times.
EDIT2: After many times adding ARMA2 exe to the profile i managed to get it working so i have 1 out of 6 games working now. However Starcraft 2 does not so i think there is a problem with that game and SetPoint. There are no launcher as i previously mentioned, but only a starcraft2.exe which takes you straight to the game. However you come to a login as you cant play SC2 offline. Dont know if that messes up something.

I just bought this mouse yesterday and have been having the same trouble. I think I have it fixed. I've done two things and so far it seems to work just fine even after a few restarts and shut downs. I'm using Star Trek Online as my example. I don't play WOW or Startcraft so I cannot see if it works with them, but STO uses a launcher so hopefully this will work.
First I loaded task manager and then loaded STO. The launcher used startrekonline.exe which I had already added to my profile. After log in the launcher (startrekonline.exe) closed and gameclient.exe loaded so I added gameclient.exe to the same profile and it seems to work. After two restarts and a shut down I found it stopped working, but the trick is after boot up open the setpoint software. You can leave it open or close it. After several tests as long as I open setpoint after boot up then the automatic profile swtiching seems to work just fine.
I hope others can get this to work.

Starcraft does use more than 1 .exe
You want to find sc2.exe in StarCraft II\Versions\BaseXXXXX where XXXXX is the most recent base release (just the hightest number I think)
If you want to see what .exe is running (on windows) for a game, open taskmanager find it, then right click and open file location.
