    i really like scrolling in the VBA-Editor of Visual Studio, Access, Excel,
    This is working on a normal OS-Installation on a real machine using drivers
    from Logitech or A4-Tech (in my case).
    In VPC the default "VM Additions PS/2 Port Mouse" driver is not capable on
    doing this (like the default MS-drivers on the host), but other drivers I
    tried are not working at all.

    Is there a way to get to work scrolling in the editor?

  2. This should work - and I have seen other posts about a patch for certain
    Visual Studio versions to enable it - but I do not have a link handy.

    It works! :)
    I did some more web-search and found 2 things:

    A (german) MS-article stating to use an old IntelliPoint 4.12 Mousedriver. I
    tried it out but it's just another mousedriver and therefore not working at
    all in the VPC.
    Mausradprobleme in Visual Basic 6

    So I used my keyboard to uninstall Intellipoint an reinstalled VM-Mouse.

    Then I found KB-Article 837910 which helped:
    Mausrad nicht aktiviert in der Visual Basic 6.0-Entwicklungsumgebung
    (Mouse wheel events do not work in the Visual Basic 6.0 IDE)

    It supplies an Add-In-DLL for the old IDE which does the job.
    And it works also in Office Access XP 2002.

    Thanks, I'm happy.
