    Announcement:

     

    A new version of the Trackpad++ is coming soon. This version will add... well, the most anticipated new gesture! The one many of the Trackpad++ users have been talking about during the past year.

     

    @Community: Hey, I want You to predict what exact feature is coming. Any ideas?

    Swipe down from top to reveal app bar?

    Hi Vladimir. Thank you for making this software. I had been getting irritated by the trackpad in Bootcamp. I had a few blissful hours of normal operation with Trackpad++ however now after starting I get the 'Cannot Communicate with trackpad++ driver" message...advising me to re-install which I did but it appears to be happening repeatedly...

     

    Im running a late 2011 MBP 2.2 with Windows 7 bootcamp.

     

    It makes no difference when I reinstall as upon startup when the tray loads it comes up with the message.....any ideas? Thanks!

    @Marcelo NS

    I get calls to non-existent functions on your Office scroll script.

    Tried the latest release in Windows8 32 bit on a Macbook Air 2,1 (mid 2009).

     

    I think the driver shipped with Trackpad++ replaced "Apple Multitouch Mouse" verson 4.0.0.1, with "Apple Multitouch" version 3.x.x.x.

     

    Since I already had one "Apple multitouch" device before the installation, after the installtion I had two devices with the same name. Should it be this way?

     

    I notiecd that no gesture worked, and my the two buttons below the trackpad had also stopped working. However, mouse movement and scrolling felt smoother.

     

    Did it really install correctly? And should my trackpad buttons really be disabled? If so, how can I move a window (without the "tap n drag" feature which I dont want to use)?

    hi vladimir nice to see you back here. I was wondering if you had any ideas about my problem above - thanks for your time and driver!

    @V-l-a-d-i-m-i-r: I´m sure the MBA is called Macbookair2,1, and has trackpad buttons. Even though not all features seemed to work, it sure seemed like the movement was better with your driver. So even though you don´t support it, I might use it anyways. I have one big problem though: How to people without trackpad buttons move a window in Windows?

    Vladimir,

     

    If this is three finger dragging that you've implemented, I just want to say that you are my all time hero, and a huge thanks to you and all involved! I have been missing this feature from my Mac EVERY time I have logged into Bootcamp... I can't believe Apple would make such a scaled down, horrible driver/software for their own hardware (actually, I CAN believe this, in a way).

     

    I've tried your solution in the past (quite a while ago) and was disappointed that it was still somewhat incomplete for my liking. It has come a long way since then, and you once again have my use.

     

    I definitely do want to make a donation to this development, and when you do come up with a solution to being able to do so, please post... I will definitely follow this thread and your site in the meantime. Thanks again for your hard work.

     

    P.S. Also wanted to emphasize the request from the user Pratnala on this page. I would also love to be able to swipe down with two fingers from the top edge to bring down the app bar in Metro.

    @V-l-a-d-i-m-i-r: I tried what you described but it does not work. I can drag some windows but not for example the Recycle bin, if I enable "Tab-Drag". Yet I haven´t figured out a consistent way of using the tab-drag feature. Sometimes it snappes, others it doesn´t. Is this perhaps the result of my trackpad with buttons differ too much compared to the trackpad model you targeted Trackpad++ for?

     

    UPDATE1: I was able to move the Reycle bin. I get the most chance of succeeding when I tripple click something..

    UPDATE2: Maybe it was a question of technique after all Now I have higher success rate. I think the key was to do one click, and then a second, and now have a micro pause before starting the move the mouse button. Tab-drag is enabled. I tried the "secondary click" feature but it didn´t work on my model.
