I'm building a P4 Win98 retro rig and I just ordered a used MS IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0 for it. But, I'm having trouble finding Win98 drivers.

I have found WinXP 32bit drivers...the mouse hasn't come in yet, so I don't know if they will work though.

Any legit sites that might have this old driver?

A PS/2, USB or serial mouse should work out of the box on Windows 98, so you don't strictly need a Windows 98 driver for it .

According to this archived page, IntelliPoint 4.12 supports Windows 98:

I downloaded this back in 2004, and the filename (assuming you want an English version) is IP4_12EngALLMsi.exe. One of the Microsoft download mirrors may have a copy.

darry: Yes, it is a USB-PS/2 compatible mouse, so it will work. But, I would prefer to have the IntelliPoint software installed.

akula65: Thanks for the file name...I'll see if I can find it.
