custom input events / mouse click?

In the "Settlers" game, one often has to perform a "special click" which is vaguely described as both buttons together but actually turns out to be the following in quick succession:
right mouse button down
left mouse button down
left mouse button up
right mouse button up

at least, so far as I can tell. This works fine on real Amigas and on every PC I've ever owned with WinUAE, but it doesn't work on my laptop. Examining the mouse events generated by the laptop, it seems to be masking the left-button events while the right button is pressed. If I press both buttons simultaneously then it gives a scroll-wheel-minus event, which isn't recognised by Settlers at all.

I *think* the solution is to remap the scroll-wheel-minus event to a series of mouse events as described above. I strongly suspect the Input panel custom events is the thing I need. I just don't know what the custom event string should be.

I have tried searching for similar issues but haven't found anything.

Any and all help appreciated.

In the meantime, I'm using AutoHotkey with this script, to generate the keypresses (ctrl+alt+right button is the trigger). It seems to work well enough.

Click, down, Right
Sleep, 100
Click, down, Left
Sleep, 100
Click, up, Left
Sleep, 100
Click, up, Right

I have heard about this problem previously but I don't remember if there was any solution. It probably is caused by some "helper" thing that makes some touch pad operations easier.

Custom event probably is best solution but I need to remember how mouse events worked (keyboard events are simple)..
