    I 've searched the forum and the web without any result ...
    My problem: how to perform a right-mouse-click with a 1-Button-Mouse (e.g. my favorite Hockey-Puck-Mouse) within a Windows-session (VirtualMachine or RemoteDesktop-Session).
    Is there any way to get it work?

    I like to use the graphite duo on my windows machine, because together with an apple cinema display they look pretty good on a desk and also are good to use, I like the haptics. However in the two years I used the puck with windows I didn't find any useful tool to emulate right click. With linux though.... its easy

    Thanks for responding! - Hmm, I as I feared, there's obviously no workaround ... ;(

    I found an autohotkey script somewhere a while ago that allowed you to CTRL-Click just like in OS X (I think you can change Ctrl to the key of your choosing) It worked with my Pro Mouse. Here's the link

    @AL1630, thank you so much - that's what I've been desperately looking for !!!
    Today I found the time to try out AutoHotKey and the mentioned script and it works like a charm!
    It's great to have the HockeyPuck- and Pro-Mouse fully working now within any RDP-Windows-session.

    And now: like in the fairy-tale "The Fisherman and His Wife" the quest for more ... :D
    How about emulating mouse-scrolling with a single-button-mouse and plus a key?

    Yeah, great, thanks! I was just about to go to bed but went back to my Mac to try OneFingerSnap.
    Gatekeeper was a bit picky make OneFingerSnap start it from the prefs-pane, but as soon as it was activated, everything worked seamless both within OS X and within Windows (as an RDP-session).
    So I have two options for the right-click now: OneFingerSnap (installation on the Mac-"Client") and the AutoHotKey-Script (installation on the Windows operating system.)
    Gonna check "avescroller" tomorrow
