  • Its tricky, but i did it.

     

    Get the driver installer started (win 7 works).

    When you get to the screen right before where it says there is a fatal error, dont press finish (or start, or next, dont remember the exact wording), press Win-R, type

    %TEMP%

    and on that folder, locate the folder with the last modification time. Go into it, and under that folder you should find an executable file named "dpinst.exe". Run it with administrative privileges and it will properly get the drivers in place. Then everything touch related works great.

  • I see 4 touch points work in the PaintPlay app, but there are many, many glitches.

    • Precision is flaky. I see waves in straight lines I draw.
    • At contact or release, multi-touches sometimes cause irrelevant lines. It might simply be a bug in the app itself.
    • Everywhere in Windows 8 (not only PaintPlay), I can't touch to open an app or press a button. I see the visual cue that the touch was detected, and I can swipe to scroll, but can't perform "clicks". I have to use the touchpad.

  • Are any of you all running Win8 on tx2s able to get the full 1400x900 screen resolution?  Mine seems to allow only 1280x800.
