Microsoft Touch Pack for Windows 7

Over at the The Windows Blog they’ve got a new post up introducing the Microsoft Touch Pack for Windows 7. Here at Microsoft we’re all excited about Windows 7 and Windows Touch. On the Microsoft Surface team, we’ve got an additional reason to be excited. We have been working very closely with the Windows team on bringing multi-touch to Windows 7 and some of the very special applications in the Microsoft Touch Pack. They are highlighted in the blog post today as the one year anniversary of the Windows 7 multi-touch demo at D6. Go check it out and learn about all the multi-touch goodness coming to Windows 7.

    Hi Eric,

    Congratulations for you and the Surface team.

    I’m very impressed with the applications in the Package by watching the demos.

    Sadly, someone goofed on this package – and here’s why!

    I have an HP TouchSmart TX2-1270US Notebook / Convertible Tablet that was one of the first multi-touch notebooks made, and this REFUSES to install under Windows 7. Interestingly enough, when I right-click to view the property sheet of the actual downloaded install and go to the "Compatability" tab, I see that the ability to change the compatability settings in respect to Windows versions is un-selectable and is locked to "Windows Vista".

    I wonder who else is having trouble with this app – anyone?

    A response from the team would deeply be appreciated.
