X-Mouse Button Control (XMBC) allows you to set a variety of controls for your mouse. For example, you can set a button copy, paste, undo, volume up/down, forward-backward (in browser), scrolling background windows, and many more.

Changes can be application-specific, meaning simply changing applications will automatically swap mouse controls, but they can also be user-managed and based on a hot-key. So your mouse can work as basic volume controls for your music player as well as back and forward buttons for your browser.

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder).

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Dependencies: A mouse and driver that supports 5 buttons (e.g. Windows default mouse driver).
Stealth: ? No. Creates empty registry key.
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the "Portable version" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. Depending on your operating system, choose the 32bit (x86) or 64bit (x64) folder (if you're not sure, go with the 32bit)

FYI (from http://www.highrez.co.uk/downloads/xmbc_changelog.htm and XMBC's TPFC forum entry):
"Portable mode is automatically enabled if the application is not in the install location under \program files. It is also enabled if the /portable command line switch is specified."

Is this a mouse gestures program?

jagam 2010-05-02 06:54

No, it is not stealth/portable, installs C++ runtime lib ...

@jagam

Could you be more specific? What file is installed when and where?

Hi Infimum :-)
You know..the installer embed with x86/64 of VC9 Runtime where will mess your system.

Here my simple (not thoroughly tested) v1.53 x86 portable creation.
Extract the installer..then "x86.VC90Runtime.msi" file.
Move XMouseButtonControl_1.exe - XMouseButtonHook_1.dll - msvcm90.dll - msvcp90.dll - msvcr90.dll to another folder.
Ren XMouseButtonControl_1.exe to XMouseButtonControl.exe and XMouseButtonHook_1.dll to XMouseButtonHook.dll
Create a Portable batch file (XMouseButtonControl.exe /Portable).
Launch your batch file..and disable the "New Version check" option.
Then delete "HKCU\Software\Highresolution Enterprises" key.
Yup..your Portable X-Mouse Button Control is ready :-)

Extraction instructions should reflect the inclusion of both x32 and x64 files in the setup package. Also and according to XMBC forums (@ http://forums.highrez.co.uk/viewtopic.php?p=4446#p4446) there's a portable package available: http://www.highrez.co.uk/scripts/download.asp?package=XMousePortable. All in all, an impressive app...

V2.5

This program completely rules. An amazing amount of features for a freeware mouse tweaking program. I have a Logitech mouse with two buttons I *never* used that now dramatically speed up my work.

Midas reported above (on 2012-07-27) that there is a portable package available.

The portable package works great, and there is no need for special install instructions, other than "extract to folder and launch ..." It's a zip file, which makes it easier as well, and comes with a Readme with further instructions.

I think the link for this program should be pointing to the portable version, and not the install version. Can that be updated, please?

Also, the "uncompressed size" needs to be updated. It's 4.75MB for the newest portable version, not 732KB.

Great program! Loving it! Much smaller footprint than the Logitech Setpoint software, which does the same thing, but at 59MB instead of 4.75.

v2.6

Must have indeed!

v2.8.4

@billon: There is no "working" EXE file within the 32bit (x86) folder. That's why I presently didn't update to v2.12.

v2.12

Checker 2015-10-19 11:46

v2.12.1 has a "working" EXE again.

v2.12.1
