    I'm able to two-finger scroll in Firefox and IE,

    ...but in Chrome, scrolling doesn't work UNLESS the mouse pointer over the scroll bar area.


    Any thoughts?

    MacBook Air (Fall 2011)

    Windows 8

    Trackpad++ 2.4a-x64

    Boot Camp 5.0

    Chrome 26.0.1410.64 m


    Also, are there certain settings in Boot Camp that should be enabled/disabled for the trackpad?

    (it's not clear how that and Trackpad++ interact/override.)


    Thanks for all your hard work on this (donations already sent!)

    You nailed it, Vladimir.

    I had a Chrome extension: Chromium Wheel Smooth Scroller that messed up the functionality.

    It scrolls now (but in a bit more jerky way than smooth continuous scroll in Firefox).

     

    Chrome acts more like it's receiving scrolling info as line-up / line-down commands...perhaps that's a limitation of Chrome.

     

    Yes, the multitouch works fine (Love the 3-finger drag for pulling a tab off the browser into an independent window). And Ctrl-Scroll for zooming works is fine as a substitute for pinch.

     

    Thanks for your continued work on this project.

    Oh, wow, just found another setting in Chrome.

    If you go to chrome://flags/ there is a setting to Enable Smooth Scrolling.

    Now we're in business!

    I'm on Mid 2009 Macbook Pro, with Bootcamp 4.0 and Windows 7 64bit. I

     

    've followed all the instructions, installed {owerplan and then trackpad++. However, I couldn't get the trackpad++ module to load as it keeps saying the trackpad driver couldnot be load. I've tried to re-install Trackpad++ several times and it still doesn't fix this problem. Need HELP!!!

    Hi Vladimir,

     

    Been using your trackpad for awhile now. I've come across a small issue however.

     

    Been running Windows 8 and bootcamp 4 on a MPB (early 2012) for several months, and no issues.

     

    Today, I upgraded to bootcamp 5, and then reinstalled both the powerplan assistant and trackpad++. Since then, I've found that trackpad++ is using a consistent 25% CPU, and it causes the fan to spin up. I really can't figure out why trackpad++ is using so much CPU, but I can only assume it has to do with bootcamp 5.

     

    Any advice?

    I don't think it is related to Trackpad ++. I upgraded to bootcamp 5 and my fan went crazy. It would not stop running. My battery life was horrible, all before I put trackpad on. And you cannot roll back to version 4. I ended up reinstalling windows and going back to bootcamp 4

    While I appreciate your reply, and the fact that boot camp 5 is likely involved in the issue, I feel the need to point out that it is trackpad++, not boot camp, which is running at a constant 25% CPU utilization, which - with a quad core processor - represents maximum utilization of the core it is running on. Moreover, ending the trackpad++ process results in normal computer behaviour, no abnormal CPU utilization, no excessive fan speeds and no system overheating.

     

    This is a trackpad++ issue.

     

    If there's more information I can provide to help resolve the issue, I'd be more than happy to oblige.

    It seems the trick is ensuring that you close trackpad before attempting to install a newer version. In retrospect, this makes sense, though I initially treated trackpad as more of a driver and less of a program. Drivers (like graphics drivers) typically don't require anything to be closed first, so the thought of closing trackpad's control module first hadn't crossed my mind.

     

    Perhaps making this clear might help others out in the future?

     

    I'll take the opportunity now to thank you for the work you've done. A truly excellent tool!

     

    Much appreciated!

    Hello Vladimir.

     

    Im trying to run trackpad on a macbook air 2011 with Tiny 7 installed.

     

    I keep getting this communication with driver error. Is it due to the Tiny 7 OS or it might be something else?
