    Hardware:
    Wyse S30
    Windows CE.Net

    Problem:
    When using the S30 for pure terminal emulation, the mouse is not needed. Even when disconnected, the mouse pointer shows up on the screen. Because no mouse is connected, the mouse pointer can not be moved.

    Question:
    Is there a way to disable the mouse on the CE devices? We don’t want to include a mouse with the terminal, as it will never be used, and the pointer covers up an important field for our users.

    Solution:
    ftp://ftp-us.wyse.com/Pub/Support/firmware/CE/ADDOns/NoMouse/NoMouse.zip

    Give this a try. It’s from Wyse but has to be applied via FTP not WDM.

    This is because the addon was written for CE5 and not CE6.
    Do you also have the mousepointer visible when no mouse is connected?

    I was afraid of that. The mouse pointer is visible even under the following:

    no mouse attached
    no keyboard attached
    a non-wyse keyboard with no mouse port is attached.

    Talked to Wyse Tech Support and they said I would have to request the no mouse pointer as a new feature and that the request would have to go through the vendor I purchased the wyse s30 from.

    Looks like this is the only way.
