    Vladimir,

    After the long-lasting testing I can confirm that all of those multi-touch features made Windows 8 a truly competitive OS on the Macbook Pro. Amazing work! Should be the real shock for the Apple IMO, as they've made the input driver poor on a big purpose, aiming to protect OS X and App Store from the Windows expansion. And you know, I've become nearly confident Apple will soon make you an offer, Vladimir. That's their style: they'll offer you the price you won't be able to resist. And sure they'll destroy the Trackpad++ code upon purchasing from you. I'm not complaining, I'm just thinking out loud

    K.R.,

    Fred

    Hi Vlad,

     

    I have the same concern of FrederiQ, sooner or later Apple may make you an offer and is not gonna be for improving our bootcamp experience thats for sure (look what they did with bluetooth drivers). Thanks to trackpad++ I can interact with my Bootcamp Win 8 partition really pleasently.

     

    PS: If you add the option of disabling 3 finnger zoom and swipe when enabling 3 finger drag, i will be the first one purchasing a trackpad++ license (despite already having my key )

     

    Thank you for your very good job.

    @Marcelo NS: Feature request accepted

    @Vald: Thank you!. Your effort is extremely appretiated.

     

    I cerntaily understand the issues with Horizonatl Scrolling. For me is working in most of the application I use. Except one of the most important ones for me Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Power Point). I came across with Autohotkey. After many hours of reading about this beatuy scripting program I found a litle woraround for fixing the horizontal scrollling issue for Office.

    Other users may find it usefull therefore allow me to post the link here:

    Hi Vlad,

     

    I am still seeing TEST MODE Windows 8 Pro Build 9200.

     

    I followed thesteps you told me previously to remove that and they didn't work. I have been living with it up untill now but it is really bothering me.

     

    I am now running Trackpad++ Exp Date 2/3/2013 and Poweplan Assitant V3.0b.

     

    Windows 8 Pro 64, Macbook 15" Retina

     

    Thanks for any help

    The steps I took just now was to run Windows_8_x64_Test_Mode_Remover in adminstrator mode.

     

    My Region settings are:

    Format: English (New Zealand)

    Home Location: New Zealand

    System Locale (language for non unicode programs): English (United States)

    Ok I have tried all you said.

     

    ALL region settings set to USA, reboot, applied fix as admin, rebooted, applied again.

     

    This time I applied the fix in an administator mode command prompt, so I could see what the application was reporting.

     

    This is what it said both times..

     

     

    C:\Users\miknz\Downloads\Windows_8_x64_Test_Mode_Remover>Windows_8_x64_Tes

    t_Mode_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.

     

     

    I can confirm that all region settings are set to USA.

     

    Region / Format : English (United States)

    Region / Location: Home Location: United States

    Region / Administrative : Language for non-Unicode programs: English (United States)

     

    Thanks again for looking into this.

    @miknz: I ran in the same issue. If you go to lanuage preferences>options. Make sure that the first tab say: Windows Display Language : Enabled.

    If says somtheing about that there is a package available for download. You need to download first, let it install and reboot.

    Only then Vlad fix worked for me.

    PS: Do you have installed WinShell/Start8 or similar? Because this also seem to have been interfeering in the WM removal process. If you do have, try to uninstal them first (u can reinstall this apps when the WM is gone).

     

    @Vlad: thank you. I can not belive that on Win8 any single program is expecting a different trigger/input for performing H.Scrolling (Is this even rational?). I have updated the script to add the functionality for Adobe. Now all my programs are scrolling smoothly .

    Hi Vlad,

     

    Love your product! I've noticed something peculiar with the Trackpad++ installation on my Windows 8 64 bit installation (Macbook Pro, i7, 16GB RAM).

     

    On boot up, it takes a longgggg time for Power Plant Assistant and Trackpad++ to run. Is this normal? And by a long time I mean something to the tune of like 5 minutes.

     

    After the computer goes into hibernate, when it boots back in...Trackpad++ is frozen.

     

    Versions: Power Plan Assistant v3.0b

    Trackpad++ 2.3d

     

    Thanks Vlad!

    -Steve

    Wow, 5 minutes! For me it takes three seconds to have both of the tools loaded! Something is really wrong with your OS so what I'd do is try to reinstall it! But let's wait for the response from Vladimir
