Windows 8 - Problems,Solutions, Tips & Tricks.
I have been testing Windows 8 in my CarPC and it looks like it has some serious potential, it pretty much removes the need for a frontend.
However I have found that it needs a little tweaking and work to adapt it to the carpc environment.
I will post here the problems i have and how to solve them, if possible.
If someone posts a solution for some problem in this thread i will update this first post to reflect it.
Maybe we can all make this thread a useful resource for people wishing to migrate to windows 8.
EGalax Touch Screen behaves like a Mouse instead of a touch panel
I have this problem with my screen it's a 7" transflective from cartft.com, it uses an egalax touchscreen.
when the touch panel behaves like a mouse you can't swipe the tiles on the start screen, and when you touch on a text input the touch keyboard does not comes out automatically, and so on...
I have found a solution for windows 8 32 bit only, you have to install this drivers:
For 64 bits there is no solution AFAIK.
