ClickAid mouse helper  Click for the Polital Enterprises Home Page

ClickAid is a FREE stand-alone on-screen mouse aid designed for anyone who has difficulty switching between mouse buttons or double clicking on a physical computer mouse. It will work with all mouse systems including head mouse and touch screen devices. ClickAid functions can be accessed by clicking on the form or optionally by using AutoSelect dwelling to enable the functions to be selected by hovering the mouse pointer over the buttons. 

ClickAid was designed with ease of use foremost in mind. The main form is icon based and does not require reading skills or language translation. Even a young child can use it.  Yes, it's FREE. No charge and no strings attached. 

ClickAid is a 32 bit Windows® application and runs on the following operating systems: Windows® NT4.x/2000/XP/Vista/Windows 7.  Sorry it does NOT run on Windows 9x or ME.

Please contact us at Polital Enterprises (ClickAid@polital.com) with your comments or questions.  We are interested in what you have to say.

 

Notice, the buttons are big so you can hit them.  Of course, when not in use ClickAid can be hidden so it's out of your way but ready to pop up with the sweep of the mouse pointer.

Don't like the size?  Just resize it to what YOU need.

ClickAid LogoWhy ClickAid
We've come to realize the not all of our users are severely handicapped.  Many just need a little help.  They may use a head mouse but have difficulty switching between right and left clicking or the can use all the buttons but double clicking is difficult.  Point-N-Click is more than they really need.  So we aim to please.  :-)

ClickAid LogoAvailable Language Packs - Currently ClickAid is using a modified version of the Point-N-Click translations. Most but not all phrases are translated.

Translate Menus and Messages:
Although the unmodified ClickAid was designed for a decidedly English speaking user community, the ability to change the displayed text of Menus and Messages, makes its use in other languages possible.  Translating all the text displayed by ClickAid is beyond the capability of Polital Enterprises.  This task should also not be left for the end user, but rather delegated to a "Translator."  Once the Translator has completed their job, a single resource file may be placed in the ClickAid Install Folder, and ClickAid will "speak" the new language.  Translators should read and follow the Help file instructions to translate the Messages-English.txt template provided with ClickAid.

Hopefully the lack of a language pack for a particular language will not present serious problems for the user since the main user interface is icon based and only the configuration program text needs translation.

Download Instructions For Language Packs: After downloading the language pack run it. It will install the Messages.txt in your ClickAid directory.  That's all there is to it.

We encourage anyone using the Message Translation feature to donate the files they've worked on, so others may benefit from an edition of ClickAid that functions in their language.  Below you will find:

ClickAid
Version 1.31.0
CAzip.exe
Approximate Download time: 5 minutes with 56k modem

The self extracting WinZip archive files containing the "Setup" program and installation files for both the latest version of ClickAid and the Help files.

Note Well:  If you have installed a previous version of ClickAid that did not use the Installer2Go you MUST Remove it first.  All your settings will be remembered when you reinstall.

NOTE: If you install in Windows XP SP2 you may see a warning window stating that “The publisher could not be verified” and asking “Are you sure you want to run this software?” The warning is displayed because we cannot afford to pay a substantial yearly fee to Verisign for digital signatures to ‘identify’ our software. Please understand that by downloading our software from our website you are getting more proof that this is our software than you would get from a digital signature. 

NOTE Vista users you no longer have to be an "Administrator" to install or run ClickAid. However, you need to have "Administrator" Privileges to install ClickAid . If your account is a "Standard User", Vista will prompt you for an Administrator/Password to use while installing. If your account is already an "Administrator", you will simply be prompted to "Allow" the installation to continue. 

Download the CAzip.exe installation file.

The CAzip.exe download is now a self contained setup program created by Installer2Go.  This is the latest ClickAid Version.   We now use the Microsoft Windows Installer to keep the installation as small and robust as possible.  If you have a very old system that doesn't have the Windows Installer, it will be downloaded and installed for you before proceeding.

Just download the CAzip.exe installation program, run it and follow the instructions.  After accepting the default installation steps, you will find ClickAid on your "Start | Programs" menu. 
In the unlikely event of problems finding the Windows Installer:
  • Windows Installer for Windows 95/98/ME - InstMsiA.exe
  • Windows Installer for Windows 2000/NT - InstMsiW.exe
  • The Windows Installer is part of all Windows XP systems.
