I want to connect a mouse and a tablet to the same computer.

I want the mouse's cursor to be separate from the cursor used by the tablet.

Is there a way to make two pointing devices control two separate mouse cursors on Windows 7?

Can you also have two mouse devices? That would be super cool –  Andreas Bonini Mar 14 '11 at 14:31

I'd be more than surprised if Windows were able to show more than one pointer. –  slhck Mar 14 '11 at 14:32

You can try Microsoft's Multipoint . Its basically used in educational institutions to cut down on hardware costs .
Or you can use MultiMouse but they very clearly express that you need more than one machine and is more of a collaborative tool .
I guess Microsoft doesnot pose any such restriction so you can go for it although I think at $139 the price is a bit steep

You can also try Wunderworks (sadly this is paid too ) All these tools allow multiple mouse points , might also work with tablet .
Couldn't find any mention of any other input devices besides mouse and keyboard though.

Wunderworks is not a full solution - two pointers but only one window could have focus and do events –  Ilya Kochetov Jun 6 '11 at 8:28

Perhaps TeamPlayer software would suit your needs.
