    Thank you for the registry idea!

     

    I just manually deleted all references to PPA and TP++ manually using regedit and that certainly helped solve my problems.

     

    Thank you for you suggestions.

    Yeah we can right click but slide down from app bar will make it complete

     

    And also, to show off to the friends who got those new Synaptics drivers and keep showing off swipe from top #Kidding

     

    I use command + z for app bar btw haha

    Hahah I think this would be great just for kicks, as soon as there isn't much left to add or fix. When the current gestures get perfected and if pinch to zoom comes around... perhaps. It's whatever the guy feels like doing. It's his spare time project. I just love that he's brought so much more functionality to Apple's own trackpad for Windows than they have.

    Wanted to say that I found the issue with that small delay after setting down an object with three fingers... As soon as I unchecked "When typing, ignore trackpad input", the delay when setting down objects was gone! Great find. I don't think that that feature completely ignored the trackpad input while typing anyways, IMO.

     

    I am finally happy

    Hey Vladimir,

     

    now that I got the key for Trackpad++, do I still need to have the mandatory Power Plan Assistant installed?

    Because I frankly don't need it and the popups are annoying.

     

    Cheers!

    I assume your website is up to date, but just to confirm, the magic trackpad is not yet supported by Trackpad++, right?

     

    This looks great, just wish I could use it on my iMac. I don't see any point in loading Windows 8 on it otherwise!

    I would love to have Trackpad++ for the Magic Track Pad!

     

    In the beginning Trackpad++ used to work wonderfully with Windows Vista x32 and 7 x32 using the Magic Trackpad.

     

    I wrote a tutorial in 2011 for The Bullettrain Express - http://bullettrain.com/express.html which I used to control my Home Theatre PC (Lenovo ThinkPad running Vista x32) at the time of writing.

     

    The tutorial is here:

     

    http://bulletblogbyjakee.blogspot.com/search/label/Windows%20PC

     

    I recommended using Trackpad++ as an option for using the Magic Trackpad with Windows.

     

    Support for the Magic Trackpad will reopen the Home Theatre PC for us which would be a HUGE improvement over the other Options I included..

     

    Again a Big Thanks for all you've done for us!

    If you had a chance to check out the tutorial I referenced at Bullettrain you can see that even getting a right click to work with Windows at the time was a MAJOR achievement.

     

    Jake (Bullettrain President) was really Happy when I told him about Trackpad ++ working with his Bullettrain Express as the Home Theater PC was just in its infancy and being able to control a PC from your lap sitting watching TV was so effortless especially with the Wireless Keyboard/Magic Trackpad combined in one device like the Bullettrain Express instead of laying on your belly to do anytjing.

     

    I'm sure that a stripped down Trackpad++ version just for the PC market is still preferable than the only viable alternative from Magic Tools http://www.trackpadmagic.com/magic-trackpad/home

     

    I use The Magic Tools Magic Trackpad Control Panel now since they basically have no competition to run my Bullettrain Express.

    So I'll chime in: it would be great to see it happen, even though it'd be a lot of work for you Vladimir. It would 'complete' the family (unless there's earlier MBA/MBP models I forgot about - but I don't think they count since they're not contemporary and not capable of the full multitouch stuff anyway!). It'd be a great thing indeed.

     

    I think I can speak for the silent majority that this is how everyone else feels.

     

    However, I also know that if you did work on it, development on the MBP/MBA product might suffer as a result...so this is why I didn't want to say anything lol. There's a conflict of interest, whichis why there's so little yeses I think.

     

    But so you don't think no one cares at all, I thought I'd chime in with these thoughts. If you have time for it, it'd be great - maybe make it a 'hobby' project (get my reference? ), only when you have some time to spare (and if it's possible to do it casually like that - perhaps it's not and it's more of an 'all-in heady dive into the complicated mess and concentrate on it while your hands are dirty and you're working it out' kind of endeavour), but I think you should mostly focus mostly on the fantastic product for our laptops, since as we all know, that's 99% of the market for apple trackpad usage on windows. I simply don't use desktops anymore, so I'm not excited about the idea of the apple magic trackpad on a windows tower. It's nice but it's a luxurious thought, not a 'necessatiy' like the mighty MBP :).

     

    BTW, you still haven't added a changelog to the website or installer package!
