I have the MX5000 bluetooth desktop set that comes with the MX1000 bluetooth mouse. My Sony VAIO notebook with Win Vista 32bit comes built in bluetooth with the Toshiba Bluetooth stack (v.5.10.10), and I absolutely cannot get the SetPoint software (v.4.4) to recognize the MX1000 mouse when I have it paired with the Toshiba bluetooth stack. The keyboard is recognized fine in SetPoint, but the mouse is not recognized in SetPoint at all, thus disabling all the advanced features. When I look in Device Manager it lists the mouse as a generic HID compliant mouse, so thus the Logitech drivers are not getting installed properly.
I found some older posts that suggested editing some of the .inf files, but it seems with Vista (or the newer versions of SetPoint) that these .inf files don't exist anymore, I can't find them in the Logitech folder or anywhere else on the computer.
So does anyone have a solution for getting the MX1000 to work correctly with the Toshiba bluetooth stack and the newer version of SetPoint?

Go to the folder C:\Program Files\Common Files\Logishrd\CCDRV2\
Edit the file called LfMouHid.inf using Notepad or a similar text-only editor.
Find the section with the label ";------------- Toshiba BT IDs --------------------------" and add the following line at the bottom of that section and save the file:
%PID_B003.mouse.desc% = LOGIHIDMOUSE,HID\VID_046D&PID_B003&Col01
It's possible that your mouse might have a different PID, other than B003&Col01. You can check this by right-clicking on the HID-compliant driver entry in the device manager, selecting properties and then selecting the Details tab. Then select Hardware Ids from the combo box and you will see the proper PID in the first line. Use this to modify the first and last parts of the line from step 5.
Choose to Update the driver and select to install it from a specific location.
Choose "don't search" and hit next.
Click Have Disk... and navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Logitech\CDDRV. Note that this is the location of the driver that you modified.
Hit OK and you should see that it finds a driver listed as Logitech MX1000 Bluetooth Laser Mouse. Choose it and hit next.
It will install whatever files it needs to for the driver, and now the mouse will appear in the SetPoint software and should operate properly, including functionality for all of the buttons.
That should be it. It worked for me. The problem is that Logitech doesn't support the Toshiba bluetooth stack, so thus by default the drivers aren't compatible. I was extremely disappointed that Logitech couldn't provide this solution for me. After hours of emails between me and their technical support the only answers I kept getting were to "reinstall set point" over and over. Like that is really going to fix the problem.

The next question (there is always another question isn't there) is how to get the Media Pad in the diNovo Media Desktop fully working also. The Media Pad is a separate keypad with a three line LCD screen which also serves to control Windows Media Centre. It does work for Media Centre control already on my system but the additional functionality that would display info on the LCD screen does not work. I would like to apply the same technique for the Media Pad as described for the Mouse but cannot tell which inf file corresponds to the Media Pad. My CDDRV2 folder contains the following inf files:
It would be helpful to know which of these coresponds to the Media Pad or even which is present on a system which does not have a Media Pad.
Any help appreciated.

I'll try looking further into it and post if I come up with anything.

I had similar problems. I am using a Toshiba U400 laptop running XP Pro SP2 and the Toshiba Bluetooth stack (v 6.10.02). The Logitech product I have is the DiNovo Cordless Desktop Laser for Bluetooth.
Until now I have used the bluetooth mouse and keyboard without installing SetPoint. However, I was unable to use extended features such as the additional function keys and so forth.
I downloaded SetPoint 4.6 from Logitech - the keyboard was recognized but not the mouse or media pad.
I followed SuperiorX's instructions above and edited the LfMouHid.inf file and updated the driver - MX1000 mouse was then recognized fine.
I then pressed the 'Connect' key on the underside of my media pad and ran the New Connection wizard in the Toshiba Bluetooth Settings utility - and that was recognized fine too ;-) As soon as they were paired SetPoint added the media pad tab.

I am using the Toshiba Stack ver 6.10.10 with windows xp SP2. Toshiba Portege MX700
I have Logitech MX1000 mouse and can get the BlueTooth Manager to recognise and connect to the Mouse, but the Mouse does NOT work and SetPoint Ver 4.6.122 does not see it and show the Mouse tab.
I tried to modifiy the LfMouHid.inf as instructed but it did not work.
Device Manger shows
Bluetooth HID Port Properties under Hardware IDS-----
I tried several varations of the LfMouHid.inf one with the exact as shown in this thread and then I udated the driver as shown but still get the message that "The wizard could not find a better match for your hardware than the software you currently have installed."
Then I tried it adding B003&Col02.
