It's currently not possible to distinguish between multiple SpaceNavigators hooked up. We will look at this and see if we can expand the API.

To uninstall the driver, please run /Applications/3Dconnexion/Uninstall 3Dconnexion Driver.app. Beta 4 has a typo issue with the version number. It will say 10.0.3 which is the same as beta 3. Even though the reported version numbers are the same, we have confirmed the actual contents of beta 4 are ...

Hi,

The returned clientID is needed to properly close down the connection and release any callback handlers you've installed. You'd need it in the call to UnregisterConnexionClient(fConnexionClientID);

Also be sure to call CleanupConnexionHandlers(); after you unregister.

Hi, param is a 32-bit coded integer. The low word is the requested LED state, the high word is the mask for LEDs to modify. In SpaceNavigator and SpaceNavigator for Notebooks, we only have one logical LED and it's number 1 so you'd use something like: state = 0x0001 or 0x0000 mask = 0x0001 message t...

Hi BDKmac, And along the lines of not knowing where the start/stop driver icon is located (perhaps you do not need one, which would be fine with me) There is no start/stop option. As you noted, one is not needed. For configuring the device, go to your System Preferences. You'll find the 3Dconnexion ...

Hi Dan, The symptom you describe of having to reopen the 3Dconnexion pref pane again in 32bit mode indicates that the latest driver is not installed on your machine. We had this problem about a year ago before we released our 64bit support. If you don't mind, let's start by uninstalling the current ...

Adding a plug-in to handle 3d mouse data in an application that already has 3d mouse support in it usually leads to a bad navigation experience. Conflict inevitably arises. The best solution is to disable one of the plug-ins. Preferably the user has an easy way to toggle a switch to determine which ...
