@pratnala: Thanks for reporting. I have fixed this issue in today's build.
@nybbles: I have added a setting to raise pinch-to-zoom threshold (that means, make it less sensitive). Please get the new build and try Gestures --> 2-Finger --> Raise Pinch-to-Zoom Threshold. By the way, could you specify what is the generation of your Macbook Air?
@ALL: The new version (2.5b) of the Trackpad++ is out today. What's new:
- Fixed 2-Finger Drag interaction with Pinch-to-Zoom;
- Added an option to make Pinch-to-Zoom less sensitive;
- On the Retina displays, Trackpad++ Control Module GUI shall now be scaled (to provide 100% the same appearance as on the 'normal' display).

@nybbles: Could you try the driver built today.
@ALL: Santa will carry something special in his bag this time: by the end of the year, get ready for something big
It's almost Christmas time... Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to everyone!

I've been a satisfied Trackpad++ user for a coupel years now - paid up and everything. I've been subscribed to this thread but never really read it becuase, I never had anything to worry about it.
However, about a week ago, I THNK after a batch of routine Windows 7 updates, my system has gone haywire. Every time I close the lid and my MBA goes into sleep mode, the system simply freezes. The only way I can get back into the machine is to hold the power button long enough to force a hard reboot.
Could this possibly have anything to do with Bootcamp and/or Trackpad++ - or does anyone have any insight aboutthis?
BTW, I have Bootcamp 4.0 installed and Trackpad++ 2.3c-x64

@mikegray: Thank you for supporting the project. About your question: as I understand, you did not update the (very old, like from Summer 2012!) Trackpad++ build, so logically there should be no relation. As you indicated, it's the same version that worked for you for a while. Anyways, please consider updating the Trackpad++ to a recent version 2.5a. Before doing this, please quit Trackpad++ Control Module from tray icon (right-click its '++' icon and choose to exit). Just one notice before you start, the current version has 3-finger dragging instead of 3-finger gestures (4-finger gestures are now the same as old 3-finger gestures, plus there is 2-finger pinch-to-zoom, and overall many fixes and enhancements vs. the old build).

@mikegray - I've had this problem for almost a year now... This started for me in between the time when I stopped using TP++ and then started using it again. I can confirm that removing TP++ does not fix the problem. I'm using Win 7 Pro SP1 fully updated on an Early 2011 MBP 15" i7.
Placing my computer to sleep and then coming back from sleep is an issue. I have no idea how to fix it. BUT, I have figured out that if I wait about 15-20 seconds before attempting to use it (so open lid and don't touch), everything works great. From time to time I still screw up, but then as you said, just hold the power button and restart...
Another thing, I have it set so that I must hit Cntrl-Alt-Del and then enter my password upon wakeup. So, as I said, immediately hitting Cntrl-Alt-Del makes it freeze... waiting everything is fine. You can try to sleep the machine, it will sleep, you can hibernate, it will hibernate... but it won't go past the lock screen...
I thought I was the only one with this problem... as I really have way to many programs on here that could cause the issue... but sadly, I'm a techie, and I use them all from time to time.
@ Vlad - downloading new TP driver now, will report back shortly....

@Vlad - THANK YOU! Trackpad 2-finger gesture is much more manageable now... from my first few minutes of testing it. I have to really purposely try to activate the feature... which sometimes I do want... thanks!

Simply amazing with the pinch-to-zoom now for all supported models! VERY NICE VLADIMIR. Accelerated scrolling seems to work even better these last few versions, and I can fully control horizontal scrolling aswell in Chrome now.
Works very good! But there's always one thing I guess... The four finger swipe forth/back differs from OSX two finger swipe back/forth, to get around this I use:
in conjunction with Trackpad++. Just remove all options but left right swipe and you're all set. However would be nice to have it all baked in TP++ and the addon can fail sometimes.
Keep up the good work.

@Contradel: Thank you for the feedback. A very cool coincidence, I have completed the 2-finger horizontal swipe feature right today, nearly simultaneously with your message. Could you contact me via email, I will provide the private test build.
@ALL: A new user interface, new gestures, new features and nearly absolute gesture configurability are the highlights of the next version of Trackpad++. If somebody wants to try the next version, please contact me via email.

@ALL: Ladies and Gentlemen, a new major revision of the Trackpad++ driver has become available for public testing:
Reminder: please quit Trackpad++ Control Module from tray icon before installing.
This is a BETA version, and not the final product. Please submit the bugs (if any found) to me. Some of the new features and enhancements in this version:
- Totally new Trackpad++ Control Module UI;
- Ability to assign an action to each of the 3- and 4-finger gestures;
- Most of the existing (ver. 2.3-2.5) functionality transformed into actions;
- New actions added, e.g. to show/hide Windows taskbar;
- Ability to assign 'run application' action to 3- and 4-finger gestures (works with *.exe and *.bat files, confirmed to work with AutoHotkey scripts);
- Ability to activate either 3-finger drag or other 3-finger gestures on-the-fly;
- New (optional) gesture: 2-finger swipe for back/forward navigation (disables horizontal scroll and vice versa; also, please note, this one is currently not available on Mid-2013 Macbook Air);
- New gesture: 5-finger click (click, not tap) for instant re-enabling trackpad input (without mouse) when the relevant option to 'disable trackpad input completely until next boot' is active.
This version is compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7/8/8.1 installed on Macbook Retina/Pro (Mid-2009 to Late-2013) and Air (Late-2010 to Mid-2013) via Boot Camp.

I tried installing power powerplan and the trackpad drivers but I decided to unistall since I barely use windows on my mac and would rather not have additional software installed. I was wondering how to fully uninstall the drivers since my trackpad and mouse are now running very slowly (also scrolling). Is there a fix for this?
Currently Being ModeratedDec 25, 2013 11:14 AM (in response to AbrahamS_NY)
@ALL: Merry Christmas!
The new major version, Trackpad++ 3.0a has been released and is now available for normal download via web site of the project. New features included in the release build are the same as in the last beta version (please see my previous post for details).
@AbrahamS_NY: Again a nice coincidence - I'm working on this now, i.e. on achieving proper inertia effect. This feature will hopefully be included in one of the future versions. So far, accelerated logic works best with Firefox and Internet Explorer (in Windows 8.1). With Firefox 26 it's already very OS X-like, except of the inertia thing, of course.
@maynards35: The fix is to install the latest Trackpad++
But actually after uninstalling you can set the mouse and trackpad speed normally, via Windows Control Panel. If there is no '++' icon in the notification area of Windows Taksbar, all of the settings are Windows-controlled.
