I've got an Intellimouse Explorer and just installed the XP Intellimouse software (on XP Pro install). I can not locate the "acceleration" feature that is supposed to be located on the "Pointer Options" tab of the mouse control panel. Where did it go?

I just re-installed the Version 3.2 that came with my mouse and I do have the option back. Interestingly enough, I did get a couple of messages stating that this version was incompatible with my Windows version, yet it seems to be working just fine. The main difference I can see is with the 4.0 build, you lose the acceleration feature (which I Like) and you gain the "enhance pointer precision."

That is where they are located on the 3.2 build. On the 4.0 release, there is no advanced option button that I can find.
