    Unhappy Mouse in DOS

    Hi,

    I am using windows-98 OS and have Turbo C++. I know mouse programming using
    int86 and 0x33 interrupt. But if i start my computer in MS-DOS mode (pure MS DOS) then I cann't access my mouse. To use 0x33 the mouse driver must be loaded.
    What should i do if i want to use mouse in MS-DOS?

    Please reply.

    First you need to enable mous in dos. You have to change some autoexexc.bat lines. Read your mouse driver manuel, or something like that.

    Two choices:

    1) You can write you own mouse driver incorported in your own programs. that way none of your program's users would require installation of a separate driver

    2) Get a simple TSR mouse driver. You can get one from me. Just call me, and i'll email it 2 u 4 free. "mouse.exe' will be required to be loaded into your computer's memory by typing "mouse.exe", or place "mouse.exe" in your autoexec.bat file.
