How do I pair a dedicated receiver with my wireless SpaceMouse?

The SpaceMouse® pairing tool enables the pairing of a wireless SpaceMouse with a dedicated USB receiver. Once a SpaceMouse and receiver are paired, the devices are uniquely bonded and SpaceMouse data can be transmitted to the computer.

Normally, the tool is used to pair a supported SpaceMouse with a new dedicated USB receiver. Information on how to pair a 3Dconnexion Universal Receiver can be found here.
