Hello Jon,

i runned this script with AutoIt
The mouse buttons are swapped in the control panel.

If only one button is pressed down GUIGetCursorInfo() returns 1 for BOTH buttons.

Dim $CursorInfo[5]
$MouseButtonsSwapped = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse", "SwapMouseButtons")

$hWnd = GUICreate("Press a mouse button", 320, 90)
$hLblSwapped = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Mouse buttons swapped: " & $MouseButtonsSwapped, 10, 10, 200, 20)
$hLblPrimary = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Primary down: ", 10, 40, 200, 20)
$hLblSecundary = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Secondary down: ", 10, 60, 200, 20)

While GUIGetMsg() <> -3
	$MouseButtonsSwapped = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse", "SwapMouseButtons")
	GUICtrlSetData($hLblSwapped, "Mouse buttons swapped: " & $MouseButtonsSwapped)
	$CursorInfo = GUIGetCursorInfo($hWnd)
	GUICtrlSetData($hLblPrimary, "Primary down: " & $CursorInfo[2])
	GUICtrlSetData($hLblSecundary, "Secondary down: " & $CursorInfo[3])

What do i wrong?
