Updating your Logitech® G5 Laser Mouse´s firmware to track on more surfaces is
easy and quick. To obtain the latest firmware, download the G5Update12.exe file.
And follow the instructions:
Plug your mouse into the USB port on your computer.
Open the G5Update12.exe file.
Follow the on-screen instructions:
If your mouse needs to be updated with the current firmware (version
1.2), the program will say "Found a G5 with firmware 1.1."
Click on the “Flash” Button
The program will then automatically prepare your mouse for the
update and execute the update. This process takes less than 30
seconds. During this stage, it is critical that you do NOT unplug
your mouse or quit the program
Once the update is complete, you will see a message asking you to
unplug and re-plug your mouse
After you´ve plugged your mouse back in, choose “Exit” to
close the update program
If your mouse already has the current version 1.2 firmware, the
program will say "Found a G5 with Firmware version 1.2" —
there is no need to update your mouse. Just click on the Exit button to
exit the program.
Your updated Logitech® G5 Laser Mouse is now ready for use.
Note: Some dialogs and warning message may appear during the updating
