The "Touch Launcher" and all special buttons suddenly worked for me after I WUN (or use Universal Extractor combined w/ the Model.txt hack) the Sony Image Conversion Filter:

Of course, I meant install the touch launcher and camera drivers/software, and Notebook control utilities first.

Windows 7 really is SOOOOOOOO much better than Vista, the boot time alone kicks Vista's ass. From turning on power to all apps loaded takes under 2 minutes in Win 7, compared to the excruciating long 10-minute cold-boot in Vista.

Good for you! It's always great when you figure something out & fix the problem. From your boot times I'd guess you have a stock harddrive. With a ssd my untweaked Win7 UX boots in 45 sec & shuts down in 17 sec (yes, I know Ubuntu is even faster but it's not for me)

I have installed Win7 on my UX92 with SSD.

Does someone had deactivated some services to make the device running much faster?
How can I optimize the Win7 for the UX???
