It Must Be Microsoft's Fault

Two of us at work have had issues installing Developer Express components in Visual Studio 2008. We get “Cannot Register Toolbox Items” and have to manually add the components to the toolbox.

Apparently this is a known issue caused by the drivers for the Microsoft wireless mouse, and has been since 2008 (we’re installing the new components).

I find it hard to believe that Microsoft would not have fixed this if it were affecting all tool vendors.

As an aside, the DevX install GAC’d both the Web and XPO components that I deselected from the install.
