Tablet Simulator

    Question

  • I downloaded the Windows8 Developer Preview, 64bit, without the development tools. Now I cannot find the Microsoft.Tablet.Simulator in the according directory. Is it possible to download the tool somewhere else?

    Thank you for allowing to test Win8 and regards Wholi

  • Did you install it on non-tablet or non-touchabe PC?

    If that is case some of tablet features won't work in non-touch screen systems. If Windows 8 been installed in touch screen,you could use them.

  • It's on a non-touch PC. The problem is, that I cannot find the simulator in any folder on the system. I think it has something to do with the non-installed development tools?!

    The Microsoft Tablet Simulator is only in the 64-bit version with developer tools. Tablet Simulator comes with Visual Studio.

     

    You can download Windows 8 Developer Preview  64bit with developer tools here:

  • Thanks TrekDozer, that's correct.

    Just for everyone's reference, the Tablet Simulator is located in C:\ProgramFiles (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Windows Simulator.
