How to enable the trackpoint scrolling?

I'm using Thinkpad X61 with a trackpoint on the keyboard. There is a data table file in C:\Program Files\Lenovo\TrackPoint\tp4table.dat . Many programs support trackpoint scrolling by modifying that file.
You can modify the behavior case by case, just specifying the executing file name, ex: firefox.exe .

But I've tried Xrcmd.exe, Xmanager.exe, Xstart.exe. None of them works. Could anyone tell me what the true executing filename is? I mean, when I open a window in xstart connection, what's the executing filename of that process?

I used xev to detect the mouse behavior. And it shows mouse button 4 and 5 when I use a mouse wheel. But nothing is detected when I use the scrolling function of a trackpoint.

Thanks a lot to the replying.

Program Ver. : Xmanager 3.0
Connection Method : Xstart connection

WM_MOUSEWHEEL event should be sent to xmanager.exe. Try adding the following to the "Pass 0 rules"section:

*However, we did not test this solution on ThinkPad and cannot guarantee that this will work.
