Regarding the inability to use the mouse wheel after updating the Logitech
MouseWare driver to version 9.75 I have reported some time ago, I have found
the following from Logitech:

"With version 9.75 and above, MouseWare now sends Microsoft native wheel
messages instead of standard scroll bar messages. Because of the changes to
scrolling implementation for MouseWare 9.75, the "Office Compatible
Scolling" and "Scroll in active window only" check boxes in MouseWare are no
longer available. This new release should provide better wheel/roller
function in games, as most games look for native wheel messages and don't
respond correctly to scroll bar messages. If you are unsure what type of
scrolling messages your game supports, please contact your game
manufacturer."

Perhaps the Digital Mars code editor window does not process Microsoft
native wheel messages. If this is the case, are there plans to change this?
