Logitech aren't releasing drivers for this old but excellent and popular product, the Logitech Cordless Desktop MX. Vista users are buying newdesktop keyboard and mouse combos so that they have working features in Vista.

BUT you don't need to buy a new keyboard and mouse to usethe Desktop MXwith Vista and flip 3d.

All you need to do is install the drivers 'in XP compatibility mode'. Right click on the drivers, select the option for compatibility mode, and then run the install. Everything works fine.

The only thing is you won't have flip 3d available for your middle button.If you're willing to live without the 'acceleration' feature of the Logitech driver (whichisnot activated in games anywayif performance concerns you)...

simply download X-Mouse button control from, which is freeware, and veryeasy to use for flip 3d without affecting your other buttons etc.

Hope this helps someone!

Unfortunately, there is no way to get old drivers to work for vista 64.
