How do I clean up Windows configuration for my SpaceMouse driver?

  1. Stop the 3D mouse driver (Start -> All Programs -> 3Dconnexion -> Driver -> Stop Driver) and close your 3D application.


  2. Navigate to %APPDATA% (e.g. C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\) and rename the folder ‘3Dconnexion’ to ‘3Dconnexion.bak’.

  3. Navigate to %LOCALAPPDATA% (e.g. C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\) and rename the folder ‘3Dconnexion’ to ‘3Dconnexion.bak’.
    Before proceeding with the next steps, it is strongly recommended that a backup of the registry be made. Instructions how to backup the registry can be found on Microsoft’s website: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/322756/how-to-back-up-and-restore-the-registry-in-windows.

  4. Click the ‘Start’ button and ‘Run’ type in ‘regedit’ and hit OK to bring up the Registry Editor. There is a registry entry under the branch HKEY_CURRENT_USER under the ‘Software’ folder. Rename the ‘3Dconnexion’ folder found in this location to ‘3Dconnexion.bak’.

  5. Restart the 3D mouse driver (Start -> All Programs -> 3Dconnexion -> Driver -> Start Driver) and restart your 3D application.
