The Mouseware software won't work in Windows 7, so Logitech tells us to "just use the native MS driver." Sorry, not good enough. The MS driver only recognizes the MX 310 as a generic 2-button mouse. My MX 310 is far from worn out, so I am not going to throw it away just because Logitech doesn't feel like writing a Win 7 driver.
With Mouseware, I could program all the buttons as any keystrokes I liked. There must be a way to restore this functionality under Windows 7. Has anyone found a third-party mouse utility for Win 7, which lets you program the buttons as Mouseware did? Such things are possible under various versions of Linux, so surely Windows 7 is keeping up?

Hi MX310user, I know (or at least I suppose) how disappointed you must be with such a good mouse only being recognized as a generic 2-button mouse. Well, I understand that you only know about Mouseware software, as it was the one that was included with your mouse, and that Logitech (a big mistake) never metioned about any other software that was compatible with the MX310.
Well the solution is quite easy, uninstall Mouseware (in the case that you had installed it on Windows 7), download Logitech's Setpoint software (the latest version is 6) and install it; then you'll recover all of your MX310 functionality.
Logitech's Setpoint has supported (for years) the MX310, but it is strange that they do not mention on the support page. It happens the same to my brother's MX510 (supported too by Setpoint).
Hope to have helped with my answer.

I'd just like to say that I recently updated SetPoint from version 6.0 to 6.1, and my MX310 was no longer recognized. Now I'm rolling back to 6.0.
