I have a mouse that I absolutely love (been using them for years), A4Tech WOP-35. It has dual scrollers and 5 buttons, 3 of the buttons are programmable. I use them at work and at home.
At work I am using Windows 7 Enterprise (32 bit), at home I am using Windows 7 Professional (64 bit).
Using Apple Magic Mouse in Windows 7, Windows 8 with all functions needs some drivers specific for 32 bit or 64 bit version of Windows 7, Windows 8.Here is how. Getting scrolling to work on Apple Magic Mouse in Windows. Jon Sisk - July 7, 2017. It’s just a mouse driver. Turns out its really. The latest 64-bit. Apple Magic Mouse 2 Windows Driver Installer adds Natural scrolling, a Battery indicator and supports Windows 10, Windows 8 and Windows 7.
The drivers installed easily on my machine at work. Unfortunately, they will not install on my computer at home. When I double click on the Setup.exe, it asks me if I want to install it, and of course I click on 'Yes', but nothing happens. When I say nothing happens, I mean nothing happens; it appears that it doesn't even try to install. The same thing happens when I right click on the setup.exe and select run as administrator.
How can I get around this? I am guessing it is because I am running the 64 bit version of Windows.
You're right, it's because of your 64-bit Windows. :) Hardware drivers are one of those things that the 64-bit vs. 32-bit addressing makes the difference, so you need 64-bit drivers.
Upon looking up your mouse, I see that A4Tech doesn't offer a driver for anything newer than Vista 32-bit. But the Windows driver package they offer DOES contain Windows 2003 64-bit and XP 64-bit drivers, so MAYBE one of those will work.
Perhaps contact A4Tech for some guidance?Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007
I too looked for the Windows 7 driver for other mice:
- Install and go to Control Panel » Mouse
- Choose Mouse and change the driver.
This mouse hadn't the second wheel but works in Windows 7.slhck
I don't believe one can use a 32-bit driver on 64-bit Windows 7, except maybe in XP Mode (which is just a 32-bit virtual machine).
You can try to set the Compatibility of setup.exe to an older version of Windows and try to install, but I am afraid that this will not change much.harrymcharrymc
If you can't acquire a 64-bit driver for Windows 7, you could try the freeware X-Mouse Button Control. It will let you program the functions of the various buttons. I'm not sure how it will handle the dual scroll wheels though.afrazier

Download driver 'iWheelWorks_Vista_1W3K.zip' (yeah, it is 'AK-6' not 'A4Tech WOP-35' but..)
Unzip. Open '/Vista X64 driver/Setup.ini' change to this and save:
Then install via 'Setup.exe'. (not my clue but it works for me)
The solution of the saveO_o works for me:'WheelWorks_Vista_1W3K.zipVista X64 driver/Setup.ini' change:
Now on Win7 64-bit the all features (5 button + 2 wheel) of the WOP-35 mouse works great.
Many many thanks for saveO_o!!!
