I have an old USB gaming device called the Strategic Commander. It was handy for strategy games like Age of Empires - allowing for easy left hand to control of scrolling, panning, zooming and using a variety of programmable hotkeys. Today it's a useless/unsupported/forgotten item that sits in a drawer in my office. I would like to use the device to help navigate in a 3D CAD environment like Blender or 3D Studio Max. On Windows 7 & 8.

Is there any existing research/work available in this area?


Is there an open source driver framework?

Does anyone know Microsoft's official stance on 'hacking' this old hardware?

How should I get started? Forrest gump suite alan silvestri pdf converter.

There's a post at about it:

I find it was VERY hard to download the driver directly from so I am sharing another link.

I did successfully install the drivers from this website

the web owner stated on

'Okay, I Finally found a copy thanks guys (sarcasm) so others can download it. I'm putting it on my website. Oh and if the author of you software wants me too take it down don't hesitate to shoot me an email thanks.'

This version does work on my Win 7 64 Bit computer. Hipath opticlient attendant download games.

I also posted it on my personal site so more people can use it.

Except for the first link ('VERY hard to download'), the others all seem down.

Google found, but given the suspicious origin and current file host, I'd recommend you take proper precautions before installing it (lest it contain malicious functionality).
