    Couldn't agree more with every point made.

    OK -

     

    I'm stuck and pretty ticked off.

     

    I paid up for Trackpad++ quite a while back and have been using ever since. It's worth it, and I'm perfectly happy to pay. But I /don't/ really want Power Plan Assistant.

     

    ONLY: on my MBA running Win7 64bit, I HAVE to install it first.

     

    AND: After having to do a complete reinstall of Windows 7, I am now completely incapale of installing TP++ becuase I can't get the stupid PPA program to install. That is, I downloaded the latest version I could find and tried to do a clean install of PPA for Win7, but I keep on getting the same message: "This is an outdated version ... " etc.

     

    The message say to get the latest version at www.powerplan7.com, but I can't find a download there. I found a v.2.5e on Techspot, but I don't see where I get anything newer.

     

    Look, if I have to pay $15 for Trackpad++, that's fine. It's worth it. Really. I'd pay $20 for it. It makes a very expensive laptop usable under Win7. But I'm ticked off about getting nickled and dimed for some other program I don't really want, so's I can run the one I DO want ...

     

    Anyway, just tell me where to send th dough and I'll pay for PPA too. But this whole experience is just unnecessarily WEIRD.

     

    Peace,

    Mike

    Cool, man.

     

    If there's some kind of background problem causing this, I can at least understand what's going on. Email sent.

    Good to know:

    if you update from BC 3.x to BC4 you need to reinstall the Trackpad++ driver.

    Otherwise it won't work but will drain your battery instead ... (I had the Trackpad process running with 50% CPU power)

    Does Trackpad++ still support MBP early 2008? This model is not listed in the http://trackpad.powerplan7.com/, but listed in the 1st post of this thread which is very old.

     

    Just want to confirm it. Thanks!

    Hi Vladimir,

     

    I love your work BUT since the PPA expired and I installed 2.5e it installs, the system tray icon appears, but as soon as I touch it with the cursor it disappears, and is not working or even a running process.

     

    This was working perfectly in previous versions along with trackpad++ but due to your set up of having to install two apps, my trackpad++ of course wont work.

     

    system is w7 on 2011 MBP. Nothing changed since previous versions of PPA

     

    I'm totally happy paying a few dollars if it works, but what is the solution?

     

    thanks

    Thank you Vladimir, everything works now.

    I'm using this driver for the first time, and till now i works very good.

    But there is one thing that doesn't work as nice as it does on OSX, the scrolling.

    I wish it will be as smooth as with osx.

    Still great software. I actually bought a magic trackpad afterwards - hope you are making progress on it's driver!

     

    One question though regarding the PowerPlanPlus software: you have preset the top left corner for linking actions. Is there a way I can change to let's say top right corner? My second screen is placed left hand and altough I love the feature I have a black screen quite often ...

     

    Thanks again!!
