Accessing vendor-specific report in HID mouse

OSR_Community_UserOSR_Community_User Member Posts: 110,217
When a HID mouse defines a report with vendor-defined usage page in the Generic Desktop / Mouse top level collection, is there a way to access it from Win32 user mode code?

As far as I know, mouse's TLC device is exclusively opened by the OS and I cannot open it, and I cannot get WM_INPUT with RAWHID for the device either. (all I get is WM_INPUT with RAWMOUSE, which doesn't include non-standard information) So, I guess the answer is no, but I just want to make sure that I'm not missing anything...

And, before you ask, no, I cannot change the device's HID descriptor.
