    Hi,

     

    I closed powerplan from the tray icon successfully.

     

    Then I went to delete \program files\PowerPlanAssistant and I got:

     

    "the action cant be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program"

     

    So I can't proceed.

     

    Mik

    Thank you so much Vladimir !

    This solution works and I have tried it myself though I am not a computer geek. Its really really simple!.

     

    Follow these steps after you have upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8 on a Mac book Pro. I had the same problem that tracket was not working.

    Download and keep power plan assitant, trackpad++ from this website

    (http://www.techspot.com/downloads/4967-trackpad-control-module.html)

     

    Step 1:Go to  Device Manager and on the two "Touchpad" entries with the bang on them, went to "Update Driver" -> "Browse My Computer" -> "Let me pick from a list..." and changed them both to USB Input Device. Reboot.

    Step 2: Unistall in case you install Trackpad ++ initially and it was not working. Similarly uninstall power plan assistant.

    Step 3: Reboot

    Step 4: Do a clean installation first of power plan assistant and then of trackpad ++ that you have saved as installer. So both these are installed now.

    Step 5:Go back to Device Manager, do an "Update Driver" again, let it search automatically, and one comes back as Apple Multitouch and the other as Apple Multitouch Mouse.

    Step 6:Rebooted again, trackpad working and shows up in Boot Camp control panel.

     

    TRUST ME IT WILL WORK !. I struggled y'day 10/27 after my Windows 8 upgrade and installation when trackpad was not working on my MBP. But the above suggestions helped and I am back working on Windows on my MBP.

     

    Thanks Vladimir once again !!

    Has anyone gotten this to work without ending up with Windows 8 in test mode? How should I proceed so that doesn't happen?

    The same thing happened for me. What I did was I went inside the folder and did select all -> delete. It doesn't matter if the folder isn't deleted. Delete the contents

    I have tried all the steps you mentioned Vlad and I still see "test mode windows 8 pro build 9200".

     

    My windows 8 install was a clean install - not an upgrade over windows 7

    Ok I ran the "test mode remover" as an administrator and rebooted after it installed and I am still seeing the "test mode" text.

     

     

    I ran it in a cmd window and could see an error output..

     

     

    C:\Users\Michael\Downloads\Windows_8_x64_Test_Mode_Remover>Windows_8_x64_Test_Mo

    de_Remover

     

     

    Windows 8 x64 - Remove Test Mode Nag Message. Cooked by Vladimir Plenskiy.

     

     

    Could not detect locale for removing watermarks! Tried en-US and en-US.

    Actually that is what is set in date and time - but if I go to "Region" then select the "adminstrative" tab then click "change system locale"  it says  : "Current system locale: English (United States)"

     

    So I think that means my local is EN-US?

     

    Its weird right in "format" it says "English (New Zealand)"   but in administrative as I said above "English - (United States)"

     

    :S
