If you see multiple mouse cursor trails in DESQview when using QEMM, version 5.0 or 6.0, and have the mouse connected to either the serial port or mouse port, chances are the port selection is not correct. (For example, this problem occurs with DESQview, version 2.24, using QEMM, version 6.0.)

You can use the following steps to set the mouse properly for DESQview, version 2.24:
    Type cd\dv to change to the DESQview subdirectory.
    Type setup, and press ENTER twice.
    Press M to select the mouse.
    Press 2 to select Microsoft Mouse.
    For port selection, make the appropriate selection:

    0 = add on board
    1 = port 1
    2 = port 2


If the Microsoft serial mouse is connected to a mouse port in a PS/2 style machine, you may see a trail of red cursors inside the windows of DESQview 386 when you use QEMM 5.0. This is not a problem with the mouse software. This problem can occur if you have selected "serial" in the port selection for the mouse when you set up DESQview. If you select "add-on board" for the mouse port selection in the DESQview Setup program, the mouse cursor displays normally.
