    VM80 Touchscreen / software not working in Vista

    I was half expecting this to not work. Has anyone got a touch screen working in Vista yet with the TouchKit software?

    I disabled UAC, ran the install in XP compatibility mode and ran the calibration utility itself in XP compatibility mode but no bueno. I dont think the USB drivers are even installing correctly. I tried forcing them in legacy hardware add mode but Vista wouldn't take the drivers.

    doh!

    Any updates on this? I just emailed Xenarc for the heck of it regarding their TouchKit software.

    Why use Vista? Useless in the car...

    This should/will work with XP and Vista (32bit only for both XP and Vista) for touchscreen controllers with a version less than 2.30B: http://www.cartft.com/support/driver...4.0.2.1929.zip

    This should/will work only in Vista and only the 32bit version and only with a controller version greater than or equal to 2.30B: http://www.cartft.com/support/driver...4.3.8.4207.zip

    Hey thanks for the links - I am 64 bit thought....
    I don't want to get into a big thread about vista in a car, but it is actually quite nice, aside from these annoying driver issues. I like the interface alot, and it is nice to have the same methods to the madness on the home desktop computer as in the car. It'll probably get ripped out in a few weeks, since i can't get XM PCR to work either, but the novelty right now of Ultimate 64 in the car is still fresh.

    BTW, the source for the drivers you listed says that they are for 32/64 XP or 32/64 vista:

    Now just gotta figure out what controller chip version mine is...

    I have never been able to get it to work in 64bit XP or 64bit Vista. Hence why I said 32bit. And no matter how cool it is, there is absolutely no reasoning to run 64bit anything as opposed to 32bit in the car. There is no argument. Music and GPS do not need 64bit bandwith.

    Just as an update, you can buy the proper updated controller (two different ones depending if you have 4 or 5 wire touchscreen) and install it yourself. I received instructions from Xenarc the other day. They have good support.

    Installed the new controller, and Vista 64 recognized it and everything.... but now the screen won't calibrate properly, so Xenarc is trying to figure out why.... may just be something pressing up against the board or panel when I re-installed it...
