Multitouch Issue with CMD Shell RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Everybody, 

    we are using Windows Embedded Standard 7 with a multitouch display and the standard windows driver.

    If a command shell is used, it takes about 2 min for the multitouch to be enabled. In that time only a single touch is possible. If the explorer shell is used, the multitouch functionality is working directly from the beginning. 

    Unfortunately the 2 min delay also appears with our custom shell. 

    Do you have any idea, why there is the delay and how we can get rid of it?

    best regards,

  • Explorer shell probably takes more time to load than cmd or your custom shell. A similar issue appears with networking, where the custom shell boots fast and networking services are not ready. In the past, the only option was to include a wait-on-service call in the custom shell. / / Book Author - Pro Guide to WE8S, Pro Guide to WES 7, Pro Guide to POS for .NET

  • I do not think, that this is only a boot issue, as the problem also occurs, if the USB connector from the touchscreen is disconnected and reconnected. With the CMD Shell it takes 2 min for initialization of the multitouch with every USB reconnect, in the explorer shell, the multitouch functionality is there right away.

  • Hi,

    I know this thread is VERY old, but unfortunately I'm having exactly the same problem.
    Is there any solution (beside waiting for 2 min...) ?
