    OK this is a stupid question and I know the darn answer to the question but, I'm just having a Blonde Day. Logitech drivers work great with Vista for my keyboard and mouse. Oh it's SetPoint drivers by the way, Where was I yeah... Whenever Vista loads it wants me to give permission for Logitech Updates (Unicode) is there a way around this to grant permission to stop this from coming up all the time because its becoming very annoying now.

    Did you install under the built-in Administrator account or your own account? Also, I thought I read some where that SetPoint was not required for Vista that it had built-in support for new Logitech devices.

    You could always disable automatic updating.

    After checking with a source, Logitech does not have a Vista compatible driver available, not even in public beta. That is probably why you are having this problem.

    However, you could try to install as the built-in Administrator (which has more permissions and unrestricted access than your administrator account).

    Or you can disable auto update checking.

    I am probably about 45% through learning everything I need to know about Vista at the moment because I am the one who will be writing tutorial manuals for all the staff. :(

    Oh sorry I have a really bad habit of not explaining things correctly. I do apologise. There are no Vista driver’s available at the moment but the Windows XP drivers 310 work fine on Vista.

    As my previous post said, my source from within Logitech said the drivers are not designed for Vista and no public beta is available at this time. Even though they may work and you aren't flagged with any compatibility issues there may still be problems (such as the one you are having).

    If you do not want to use the native support built-in to Vista then I would disable auto update checking.

    Setpoint isnt available for Vista yet. How are you getting it to work?
