I have the most unfortunate luck with mice. With my current mouse, everything works fine except for my middle mouse button. Hasn't effected my too much until I discovered that a Rainmeter Skin requires the middle mouse button in order to access the configuration of one of the modules.

In the past I've used a program called Joy to key when my keyboard was broken. Used a Cyborg joystick for most functions I needed while typing was left to voice recognition and on screen keyboard. Unfortunately the same program wont help me bind a key to function as the middle mouse button. I haven't seen any way to reconfigure the bindings in Rainmeter either. Buying a new mouse is unfortunately not an option at the moment, even a cheap one.

So, is anyone aware of a free program that could allow me to assign a button on my keyboard, maybe the tilde key or right shift etc, to the middle mouse button? It would be greatly appreciated.
