Not totally sure what the return should be but if you take off the ,,48 it will run with no errors.

This works for me:

$objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & @ComputerName & "\root\WMI")

$colItems = $objWMIService.ExecQuery ("SELECT * FROM MSMouse_PortInformation")

$n = 1
For $objItem In $colItems
    MsgBox(4096, "Mouse: " & $n, "Active: " & $objItem.Active & @CRLF & _
            "ConnectorType: " & $objItem.ConnectorType & @CRLF & _
            "Buttons: " & $objItem.Buttons)
    $n += 1
