Final: Microsoft Office 2007 Support


It’s been a while since the last update of MouseImp. This new final version of MIPro.DLL supports several Office 2007 applications, including MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Visio, and some windows in MS Outlook.

Office 2007 support has now been tested, and I included it with the main application. Download and install MouseImp from http://www.mouseimp.com/MIProLive.exe.

    On Vista, MouseImp seems to work only in applications that have the same UAC level as MouseImp. Any fix for that?

  2. aoleg says:

    Not a fix, but a workaround. Run MouseImp with administrative privileges: right-click on its icon, select “Security” tab, and check the “Run this program as an administrator” checkbox.

    Cause: MouseImp registers its hook DLL by attaching to the processes that are running, so it requires same or higher level of UAC as these applications.

    it’s been so long for the office 2007 support, thanks for the update! I just tried the latest dll, something to report to make it perfect in the future:

    *I’m using winxp sp2, combined office 2007 (word, excel, powerpoint) and 2003 (outlook).

    word 2007: I use right button to active the scroll, after one or two scroll, new dll always cause high CPU usage and semi-hang-up for about ~10 seconds, then mouse courser can be moved but still in “hand” shape, as if I’m still in the scroll mode, then after another ~5 seconds all come back to normal. This will happen again and again and make the scroll in word2007 completely un-acceptable.

    excel and powerpoint 2007: so far so good.

    outlook: I’m using outlook 2003 but not 2007, with the old dll everything is fine; after install the new dll, I just can’t scroll in the main email list window, but some other window in outlook are still ok.

    Update: the new build (17-Jun-2007) is supposed to fix this.

    Hi, first I want to say thank you for the update & thank you for keeping Mouseimp.
    It works on the horizontal scroll, but sometimes it stucks with scroll mode until I press ctrl-alt-del.

    One request of feature if possible: option to make the cursor stay on one point when scrolling. I believe this feature should be implemented in “Grab and Drag” Firefox Add-on, I often losing the ability to scroll when the cursor gets to the toolbar.

  6. aoleg says:

    > …sometimes it stucks with scroll mode…

    Confirmed. I’ll be fixing this in a few days.

    I tried this updated DLL in XP and had no results. Does not work at all for me. Close MouseIMP, reverted back to the original DLL and it’s working fine again.

    Hmm, that shouldn’t happen. I’ll give it more testing under XP, yet I don’t have the 2007 Office on my XP machine.

    Update: tested on XP; the new DLL works fine. As I said, I don’t have MS Office 2007 there, so could not test this part on XP.

    Thanks for the update again, I’ve download the new dll (17-Jun-2007), now outlook 2003 “main mail list window” issue is clear, word 2007 hangup issue is also improved: the hang-up happen less and recover quicker—now I can keep the new dll for my daily use and test more ;-)

    one new question for the two version of office2007 beta: it seems I can’t use horizontal scroll at all, in any of my word/excel/ppt 2007, but it’s ok in outlook 2003 and windows explorer. (I already checked “bidirection” in direct scroll tab) in explorer.

    thanks

    Horizontal scrolling currently does not work in the Office 2007 applications, so I chose to disable it in the MouseImp code. This reduced the frequency of the lockups as well. I’ll be testing it some more this week to eliminate the lockups altogether, with horizontal scrolling being down the list of priorities.

  11. NeoGeo says:

    In Maxthon when list page backward (from down to up) SO SO LAGING ! Old dll work perfect.

  12. aoleg says:

    27 June Update: the new DLL fixes lock-ups in the Office 2007 applications. Should also take care of the Office 2007 applications in Windows XP and older operating systems, but I can’t test this as I don’t have Office 2007 on my XP machine.

  13. cruiser says:

    Thanks aoleg, the June.27 dll works very good in my word/excel/ppt2007 now, CPU usage of MouseImp is 0% even when I keep scrolling in any office app above. By adding horizontal scrolling I think it will be perfect.

    What’s next? maybe scroll in firefox2? :)

  14. aoleg says:

    FireFox scrolling may be the next thing (though I for one am happy with FF Grab’n’Drag plugin), but horizontal scrolling in the Office 2007 apps is very unlikely. Right now, MouseImp simply acts as a mouse “wheel”, thus can only do up and down.

  15. Chris says:

    “FireFox scrolling may be the next thing…”
    Please do consider that. I have an issue with Grab and Drag, which is when it losts the scrolling as soon as the cursor hits the toolbar. I already contacted the author about this but no reply is sent, so I’m not hoping much.

    And for other future reference, perhaps:
    Auto scroll option for all windows – like when user clicks middle mouse button in FireFox.

    Anyways, good luck & thank you for the update.

    Very good program but… I was so sad when I recognized that it does not work in Firefox! :)
    So, I ask for support in Firefox window and every other applications!
    MouseImp for all programs!

  17. McClausky says:

    This is great!! All this years I thought Mouseimp was extinct. This is a vital application for all of us who don’t like (hate) the use of scrollbars. I just tested it and it’s working fine in Office 2007. It’s not working in firefox with we can live with Grab n’Drag. It would be really nice if you could make it work in Opera 9. Best Regards!!

    there is version which works in Opera
    http://cooler.irk.ru/mouseimp/
    this one doesn’t – what a heck …

  19. aoleg says:

    I don’t have the source code for Opera as only the binary was provided by a contributor, hence I had to modify the original MouseImp.

  21. khu says:

    yes. thank you very much indeed for mouse imp and the benefits it has brought me over a long time. i refer people to a related discussion here: http://www.gottabemobile.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=4167&PN=1

  22. harda says:

    thanks for link…but it uncorrect at this moment(

  23. aoleg says:

    Here is the link to the proper Opera-enabled DLL: http://www.mouseimp.com/mipro.zip

    I don’t have the source code for this version, so unfortunately I can neither get Opera code from it nor add support for Vista and Office 2007 to it. So if you’re using Opera and not using Vista & Office 2007, then by all means get that DLL.

    It’s seems the AutoShrink function of MouseImp Live has some issue on my computer.it not work completely, I set it to Shrink Photoshop, but when photoshop start, nothing be Shrinked .in old 1.2.0.49 it works fine.

    My OS is windows XP Pro SP2 simplified chinese.

  25. add says:

    In uTorrent 1.7.5 if I scroll whith MouseImp in the main window or the RSS window when I close that window the program crashes. In their forum people report the same problem with versions 1.7 1.7.1 was fixed by updating their MIpro.dll but I tried and it did not help with 1.7.5 . I suggest adding some sort of ignore list so users can set MouseImp not to hook in some applications.

    Also I am using Office 2003 and MouseImp Pro Live only scrolled vertically so I am now using the http://www.mouseimp.com/mipro.zip dll with which it scrolls both ways.

    OS: Win2k SP4

  26. aoleg says:

    zero: I am pretty sure I haven’t modified anything regarding AutoShrink. However, I am seeing more and more reports saying that one or another piece of MouseIMP functionality stops working after my modifications are applied. That’s strange… maybe I don’t have the latest source code after all?

  27. norikai says:

    I have used MI for five or six years. It’s an excellent tool.
    Thank you!
    I Appreciate your works!

  28. Vlada says:

    Can I enable mouseIMP in Opera 9? How do I use .dll file?
    Great aplication, thank you!!

  29. aoleg says:

    Vlada,

    Opera support is coming after the New Year thanks to Oleksa Borodie who implemented the Opera compatibility feature.

  30. Victek says:

    That’s great news about Opera support returning to MouseImp Pro Live! Any idea when the update will be available? regards…

  31. aoleg says:

    That’s been done: the new version that supports both Opera and Firefox is online.
