old drivers for Windows

Post by wavemaster » Thu Sep 11, 2014 8:49 am

Today I uninstalled the most recent driver from my Windows X64 machine, after wasting too much time attempting to figure out how to set up my buttons on the Space Navigator for Autodesk Inventor.

Reinstalled version v3-6-11.

Amazingly in just a few clicks I had my left button as Zoom All and my right button as Zoom Window, just the way I like it.
Amazingly the 3Dconnexion software recognized my setup with Inventor.

The driver is 87 Mb, versus 150 Mb for the most recent driver.
The most recent driver insists that I use Options on the left button and presents a variety of menus for the right button, none of which allowed me to set the buttons the way I like.

That is a 5 year old driver.

I wish I could find something more recent on the 3Dconnexion site, but did not. Why isn't there a section with old drivers for us to pick and chose from?

That is a driver from June of this year.

I am looking for something before the must-have-options-on-the-left-button era at 3Dconnexion.

Those drivers are no longer available only the 3.18.0 or a 3.16.3
You can try selecting one of the legacy devices example the SpacePilot not the Pro or a Spaceball 5000 USB.
That will list the last driver for those devices and they still recognize a Spacenavigator.
