So are you saying there's no reason it shouldn't work? If so I'm super stuck cause I feel like I've tried everything.

USBXHCI.SYS is definitely NOT 1903 version but some update (18362.207). I will check it.

Instead, you posted something oblique, and then when I asked a reasonable question, you followed up with something that sounded fairly sarcastic ("it's time to read README.txt").

There's no easy way to know if you've got the files you need & are working on a fix. Maybe that could be helpful if you edit it into the OP along with as of yet unsupported OS versions?

Anyway, I hope you take this constructive criticism in the spirit in which it was intended, and thank you once more for giving my WMO years of extra life
It's all OK, but
1. All versions are supported (and the latest checked version is clearly described in github commits) - except in some cases the latest one that i still don't have.
2. And more important - i'm not active user of windows 10 right now, so you are the one who NEED help, not i am. It's just hobby for me, not work.
3. And if you read this topic you will find that people just sent me the newest files - without long discussions.
P.S. But i will update the first post with the latest checked versions. You are right, this is much easier for somebody to isolate problem himself.

Joel Burton I also can't get it to work with 1903 - I can send you those files SweetLow if you need? Don't really want to retire my IMO but it's looking more and more likely. PM

Just following links in sticky thread of Mice subforum:
>MouseTester Software Reoloaded: The go-to utility of this subforum for recording and analyzing everything performance-related in a mouse. Encompasses all functionalities found in Enotus (and does all of them better), with "x vs y" plot replacing MSpaint and MouseMovementRecorder for angle-snapping tests and 1x1 count tests respectively.

I tried this but got inconsistent polling rates.

This is mostly an FYI for anyone else that has similar hardware. But if anyone has anything they could suggest to get it to run at a consistent 1000. I'd appreciate it.

System is Win 7 pro x64.
Amd 1800x
Microsoft Sidewinder X5 (yes it's old)

I didn't know what the default polling rate was.
So I tested with the Mouserate.exe.
The polling rate was steady at 500 with little variation.
I'm happy that my existing driver is running at 500. I was afraid that since it was old that it would be slower than that.

I installed Hidusb. (Not the Hidusb-FN version.)
It installed fine. Windows did not ask for or indicate the need to install the certificate.

I turned the filter on, and set it to 1000.
The AVERAGE polling rate did go to 999. (1000 effectively)
But the polling rate varied widely from 200-999. Seemingly jumping up and down for no apparent reason.
I turned the filter off and repeated the test several times.

With the filter off, using the default driver the polling rate was steady and varied very little from the average 499.
With the filter on and set to 1000, the polling rate swung wildly from 200-999. But the avg still showed 999.
I tried setting the filter to 500 just to see what would happen. Again the avg was 499 but the rate swung wildly through a range of 100-499.

The MS sidewinder mouse came with it's own driver and software. So maybe the two aren't compatible. And I did not install or use the certificate so maybe that was an issue as well.
I considered that it's an old mouse so may be mouse itself couldn't handle the 1000 rate, but it does 500 with it's MS driver very consistently and was inconsistent with the custom driver at both 1000 and 500.

So I'm still using the default driver.
I am interested in finding out if my gaming experience would improve if I was able to go from 500 to a steady 1000. But that may not be possible with this mouse.

Thanks for the files. I appreciate the effort that went into making them.
