            LogManager::getSingleton().logMessage("Win32Input: Establishing mouse input.");

            // Create mouse device
            hr = mlpDI->CreateDeviceEx(GUID_SysMouse, IID_IDirectInputDevice7,
                (void**)&mlpDIMouse, NULL);

            if (FAILED(hr))
                throw Exception(hr, "Unable to create DirectInput mouse device.",
                    "Win32Input - initialise");

            // Set data format
            hr = mlpDIMouse->SetDataFormat(&c_dfDIMouse);
            if (FAILED(hr))
                throw Exception(hr, "Unable to set DirectInput mouse device data format.",
                    "Win32Input - initialise");

            // Make the window grab mouse behaviour when foreground
            hr = mlpDIMouse->SetCooperativeLevel(hWnd,
            if (FAILED(hr))
                throw Exception(hr, "Unable to set DirectInput mouse device co-operative level.",
                    "Win32Input - initialise");

            // Acquire input
            hr = mlpDIKeyboard->Acquire();
            if (FAILED(hr))
                throw Exception(hr, "Unable to set aquire DirectInput mouse device.",
                    "Win32Input - initialise");

            LogManager::getSingleton().logMessage("Win32Input: Mouse input established.");

That code is to use DirectInput for the mouse (for DirectX 7 only I believe), though I'm not sure why it was commented out. If you aren't using DX7 then I believe the file being used is OgreWin32Input8.cpp (which handles DX8 and the DirectInput mouse is used).
