- Windows XP SP3
- Windows Embedded Standard 2009
- Windows 7 SP1
- Windows Embedded Standard 7 SP1
- Windows 8.1
- Windows 10

----------------------------------------------------------------
APPLICATION NOTES
----------------------------------------------------------------

The touch driver can be used in two operating modes:

Touch Mode</>

- This mode is only possible on systems with Tablet PC support like Windows 7 and Windows Embedded Standard 7 Premium.
- Following touch features are supported by the system:
* right-click over time
* flicks
* multiple touch screens in Extended Desktop mode
Note: for that each touch screen must communicate over a separate serial port, for example COM3 and COM4 on APC810.
* automatic adapation of touch positions with rotated displays (see also "Tablet PC settings" and "Pen and Touch" in the Windows control panel)

Mouse Mode</>

- This is the "classic" operating mode: all touch operations are handled by the system like mouse clicks.
- After changing the display orientation (portrait, landscape) the touch screen must be calibrated.
- Right-click does not work on all Windows user interface elements for example start menu entries, because "left mouse button down" is generated first when the touch is pressed and this leads already to an action. "Right mouse click" is generated after the specified time.


----------------------------------------------------------------
NOTE FOR CALIBRATION IN WINDOWS 7 TOUCH MODE
----------------------------------------------------------------

The Tablet PC calibration shows 16 calibration points at the first call or when the existing calibration was reset. This performs a system-wide calibration. All subsequent calibrations show only four calibration points and store the the calibration data per user.


----------------------------------------------------------------
NOTES FOR USE OF MULTIPLE TOUCH SCREENS AS EXTENDED DESKTOP
----------------------------------------------------------------

- When multiple touch screens are used as extended desktop the Microsoft Hotfix KB2618640 ("You cannot calibrate a second touch screen in Windows 7") is required to allow proper calibration in touch mode. You can download the hotfix from the Microsoft website: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2618640
- When multiple touch screens are used as extended desktop in mouse mode touch input is only possible on the primary monitor.


----------------------------------------------------------------
LIMITATIONS
----------------------------------------------------------------

Beep on release is not supported on Windows 7.


----------------------------------------------------------------
Version 1.4.1 / 2016-12-12 / HOH
----------------------------------------------------------------

Error corrections

- KB3033929 was not detected if KB3125574 was installed. The check

Components</>

- Updated with BrTouchApplet.cpl V1.4
- Updated with BrTouchCalib.exe V1.2.1
- Updated with BrTouchSelect.exe V1.4
- Updated help: note for monitor change at "Monitor Off" feature.

Fixes</>

- When an already existing version was removed, an eventually required restart of the system was suppressed.
- The required disk space for installation was shown with about 1.9 MB, although 15 MB were installed. -> technical related to setup and no longer displayed
- At silent installation message boxes could have been displayed at touch select/assignment.
- Windows Touch settings were disabled in the applet, when the Tablet PC Input Service was not started. By that sometimes changing from mouse mode to touch mode was not possible.
- After cancelling the calibration twice the status was shown as "calibrated" in the applet.

Changes</>

- Setup now supports the Windows 7 Restart Manager API to close and restart applications using files that need to be updated.
- After installation with Windows 7 Touch Mode a restart is no longer forced.
- Touch select/assignment at setup is now logged in \Windows\TouchInst.log.
- When Touch Mode is selected in the applet the Tablet PC InputService is restarted (when a touch device is present).
- The applet shows a red info text, when touch mode is selected but no Tablet PC support exists (that means no touch input is possible): "Touch input is not possible: The Tablet PC Input service is not started or there is no touch screen connected."

On Windows XP or WES2009 this text is shown always: "This option is only available on systems with Tablet PC functionality such as Windows 7."

Remark: In rare cases it could happen, that a valid Tablet PC support is detected (ie. the Tablet PC Input Service is started), but touch input doesn't work -> this is caused by the system and can not be recognized; the system must be rebooted.
- After installation of a touch device via the GUI the Tablet PC Input Service is restarted.

APPLICATION NOTES
----------------------------------------------------------------

The touch driver can be used in two operating modes:

Mouse mode

- This is the "classic" operating mode: all touch operations are
handled by the system as mouse inputs.
- After changing the display orientation (portrait, landscape)
the touch screen must be calibrated.
- Right-click does not work on all Windows user interface elements
for example start menu entries, because "left mouse button down"
is generated first when the touch is pressed and this leads
already to an action. "Right mouse click" is generated after
the specified time.

Touch mode

- This mode is only possible on systems with Tablet PC support
like Windows 7.
- Following touch features are supported by the system:
* right-click over time
* flicks
* multiple touch screens in Extended Desktop mode
Note: for that each touch screen must communicate over a
separate serial port, for example COM3 and COM4 on
APC810.
* automatic adapation of touch positions with rotated displays

(see also "Tablet PC settings" and "Pen and Touch" in the
Windows control panel)


----------------------------------------------------------------
LIMITATIONS
----------------------------------------------------------------

- When the driver is used the mouse mode and multiple monitors are
used in extended desktop mode touch input is only possible on
the primary monitor.
- Beep on untouch is not supported on Windows 7.
