In some virtual machines in more advanced versions of Windows, these files may still operate properly. Since the advanced versions use a Hardware Abstraction Layer to insulate the hardware from the software, these files really offfer no additional info in these environments.

The following is for Windows 3.x. For Windows 95 and later, it is strongly recommended you use the SETUP.EXE program to ensure a proper installation.
This section is for users intimately familiar with DOS and Windows and is provided to document system changes.
The following information is included to document the changes made to a system by the Joystick-To-Mouse Setup program. The product may be installed manually with this information by using the EXPAND command (EXPAND.EXE is located in the Windows subdirectory), and referencing the files and their locations above (JOYSTICK-TO-MOUSE FILE NOTES).
The default Joystick-To-Mouse subdirectory is a subdirectory of the default Windows directory called JOY2MSE. On most systems this would be C:\WINDOWS\JOY2MSE.
To install Joystick-To-Mouse manually, you must do the following:
While at the DOS command prompt -
Create the default directory
Change into the new directory
Expand the required files from the distribution media into the current directory (e.g. EXPAND A:JOY2MSE.EX_ JOY2MSE.EXE)
Change to the Windows system directory and copy the JOYSTICK.CPL and IBMJOY.DRV files from the distribution media.
Make the following changes to the CONTROL.INI file (located in the Windows subdirectory)
Section Heading & Line entry [drivers.desc]
ibmjoy.drv=Driver for Joystick
Make the following changes to the SYSTEM.INI file (located in the Windows subdirectory)
Section Heading & Line entry
NOTE: Not in Windows 95 - you must use the drivers shipped with Windows 95.
Windows must be started from the DOS prompt to implement the changes to the system.
While in Windows...
From the Program Manager, create a group, or select the group where you want to install the Joystick-To-Mouse icon (if you place the icon in the StartUp group, it will automatically run every time Windows is run). Then select File, New, then Program item, and enter the Description as "Joystick-To-Mouse", and then enter the installation subdirectory along with JOY2MSE.EXE (e.g. C:\WINDOWS\JOY2MSE\JOY2MSE.EXE) in the Command line, then click OK.
The joystick driver may be added (if required) through the Control Panel's Drivers Applet.
The OEMSETUP.INF file is included with the IBMJOY.DRV so Windows can setup the driver. To do so, click on the Drivers icon while in Control Panel, then click on Add, then select the proper drive & directory. On the floppy, the driver IBMJOY.DRV & its associated Control Panel applet JOYSTICK.CPL are located in the JOYSTICK subdirectory. When using the Control Panel to add a new driver, enter A:\JOYSTICK (or B:\JOYSTICK) as the path.
