The current way of working is only useful when adjusting the speed settings on the 3Dconnexion control panel, makes it much easier than having to switch back and forth between to the main application and the control panel to see the effect of any change. I can't think of any other circumstance where...

Navigator still active in unfocussed window.

If I open say Windows Explorer and take focus away from Solidworks, moving the SpaceNavigator still moves the Solidworks model behind the explorer window.

This is also the same on the demos.

I don't think it should do that.

Win XP Pro
SpaceNavigator v3.4.2
Solidworks 2007 sp3.1

Fred, One more thing ... I ran 3dxrepair.exe and it validated the installation. I suspect we might have a hardware problem with the USB connection, though as the PC works with other USB devices when connected to the same port, this seems a little strange. Is there a debug switch I can use to get mor...
