for industrial use, we want to connect 2 additional mouse. The position of the mouse data to be evaluated in a separate application. My problem is that is indeed such a mouse automatically logs on to Windows and then move the mouse pointer of course. This I will not.
Could hear the supplied mouse I recognize on the basis of VendorId. But I have no idea how I can suppress the assignment in Windows and get to the mouse data.
Has anyone of you an idea ?

Thank you very much

Microsoft has an SDK for handling multiple mice. Using the SDK you can get input from up to 25 different mice.
This SDK comes with a comprehensive set of examples.[^]

you start by assigning a MultipointMouse event:
MultipointMouseEvents.AddMultipointMouseDownHandler(this, this.OnMultipointMouseDown);

and in the event handler you deal with the mouse data:
private void OnMultipointMouseDown(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    var args = (MultipointMouseEventArgs)e;

you can access the device that sent the event:

You can know the state of the buttons:
if (args.Buttons == RawMouseButtons.LeftDown)
    //do something...

Etc... Etc...

The SDK comes with a few easy c# samples.
