    DUH!

     

    Did not have to do any uninstall, reinstall, reboots, or anything other than go to the totally forgotten...

     

    Boot Camp control panel

     

    Went to the Trackpad Tab in the Boot Camp control panel

     

    Turned off Tap to Click and everything works!

     

    Thank You and Merry Christmas!

    To Vlad and the community here, I have a small piece of advice.

     

    I suggest that the "Test Mode" watermark not be removed in Windows 8. Messing with those DLLs is causing problems in Metro apps and MS-related software (for example, I couldn't activate Windows once even). I used to do a refresh every week almost because something or the other screwed up.

     

    What I did now:

     

    Since PPA automatically removes the watermark, I didn't install it (I don't need it anyways). To ensure Trackpad++ works, I ran this command in an elevated command prompt

     

    bcdedit /set TESTSIGNING ON

     

    and then installed Trackpad++. Life is good now. No problems with any Metro apps or anything whatsoever from the past 2 weeks. Also, I'm not using PPA now.

     

    I would love to hear your view on this Vlad. And, yeah all edge gestures (and other gestures) work fine for me. No problem on that end. Just one issue. Trackpad++ takes a long time to startup when the laptop is switched on. Can startup time be reduced in future versions?

     

    Happy New Year everyone!

    I actually like PPA Vlad. But, as I described, removing Test Mode watermark is actually causing issues for me. I really love the WiFi/bluetooth toggle.

     

    P.S. Love that last sentence of yours

    Hi Vladimir,

     

    I have installed the power plan assistant. However the test message does not dissapear. It still remained if I restarted, uninstalled the program, etc.

    It was still there after all reboots, uninstalls, reinstalls etc.

    I wiped my hard drive re-formatted and reinstalled windows. Installed the power plan again and the mark reapeared and i cannot get rid of it.

    Hi Vladimir,

     

    I was able to set any setting I found to EN-US.

    restarted

    I've applied the patch as administratoe-rebooted 5 times.

    the Test Mode thing still there.

    Im gonna reinstall the app now.

    Reinstalled and didnt helped. Any way to remove the PPA and this annoying TestMode msg without having to Format my bootcamp partition again ?

     

    I have also grabbed this from error log there is aproblem related to PPA:

     

    See the end of this message for details on invoking

    just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

    ************** JIT Debugging **************

    To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this

    application or computer (machine.config) must have the

    jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.

    The application must also be compiled with debugging

    enabled.

     

     

    For example:

     

     

    <configuration>

        <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />

    </configuration>

     

     

    When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception

    will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer

    rather than be handled by this dialog box.

    Thank you for your replay. Can this issue be related with my Win8 license? I have purchased the license in the Netherlands and it is an upgrade licesne (i have however made clean install).

    Can you provide me the fix? I am certainly able to run the code in the terminal console.

    I have downloaded the program. There is no output the program seems to work, te terminal shows up just a fraction of second.

    O wait... sorry i missunderstood. I ran the program with double click on the icon as administrator. How do i run it from the console?

    Hi Vladimir,

     

    thank you for your patience. I will certainly buy you a beer . Running the exe file from the cmd prompt as administrator finnaly did the trick.

    The output was somehtink like Ok, Ok, done, Ok. please reboot...

    I am enjoying PPA and trackpad ++ drivers now.
