X-scrollwheel in Windows

X-scrollwheel in Windows

Is there any way to have mouse-wheel events sent to whatever window is underneath the mouse pointer, even if it's not the active window? I'd like to have x-scrollwheel capabilities without having to turn on x-mouse.

"I'm not sure if this is supported in Windows natively, but a program called KatMouse should do just this:

The prime purpose of the KatMouse utility is to enhance the functionality of mice with a scroll wheel, offering 'universal' scrolling: moving the mouse wheel will scroll the window directly beneath the mouse cursor (not the one with the keyboard focus, which is default on Windows OSes). This is a major increase in the usefullness of the mouse wheel.
