As of Cinema 4D's 2023.2 release, native 3DConnexion support has been removed and support for these tools will now be handled entirely by 3DConnexion.
If you encounter problems using a SpaceMouse on Windows, this workflow might help to solve driver issues:
- Uninstall the current driver by going to Control Panel and selecting "Uninstall a program" or "Add or remove programs" depending on your Windows version. Look for the 3Dconnexion driver in the list of installed programs and select it. Click "Uninstall" and follow the prompts to complete the process.
- Close any application that uses the 3Dconnexion driver. This will prevent any conflicts during the cleanup process.
- Open File Explorer and navigate to C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming. Look for a folder named "3Dconnexion" and delete it.
- Go to C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local and delete the "3Dconnexion" folder found here as well.
- Before proceeding with the next steps, it's recommended to make a backup of the registry. You can find instructions on how to backup the registry on Microsoft's website: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/322756/how-to-back-up-and-restore-the-registry-in-windows
- Click the "Start" button and type "regedit" in the search box. Hit "Enter" to open the Registry Editor. In the Registry Editor, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software and look for the "3Dconnexion" folder. Right-click on it and select "Delete" to remove it.
- Close the Registry Editor.
- Reinstall the current 3Dconnexion driver.
- Restart your machine to ensure that all changes are applied.
- Test the 3Dconnexion driver to confirm that the issue has been resolved.
