I posted this message 4-Nov-2010:

In XInput2, when i get a XI_HierarchyChanged event after plugging in another 
mouse, is there a way to get a unique identifier for each device such as a brand 
and model number?

When i start my program that uses two mice for different functions (one in each 
hand), it would be useful for them both to be assigned the correct role whenever 
the program is started, regardless of whatever other devices have been plugged 
in since the last session.

I'm not currently working on mouse stuff, but i will again sometime, and will 
use more than one pointer device simultaneously for CAD programs.
