Windows detects USB GPS as Serial Ballpoint - please suggest permanent modification to prevent any serial mouse detection
ExcludeFromSelect.NTx86 = *PNP0F0C,*PNP0F08,*PNP0F09*PNP0F01,*PNP0F0A,*PNP0F1E
This does *NOT* do the trick. The GPS is consistently being enumerated by the system as a "serial ballpoint mouse".
This has been reported by numerous people in numerous forums on numerous configurations over multiple windows versions.
When is Microsoft going to fix this? This is not a GPS issue. This is not a serial device issue. This is not a USB issue. This is, pure and simple, a Microsoft issue.
Removing the 'upperdrivers' entry for serenum might do the trick, but the registry keys are not writeable now in Win7. Sweet. Thanks, Microsoft.
I had the same problem, cursor sometimes jumps all over the screen
Here's the fix: Open Regedit. Navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SerMouse, and change the value "Start" from 3 to 4. Reboot.
I found this on a website for a program to help with gps . Worked like a charm for me.
There is a reg file that will do the editing for you also. http://www.curioustech.net/downloads/reg.zip
