Did you have the full paid version of this driver for Windows 7? Is your touchscreen not working at all or you just aren't getting some extra features. Im confused to the differences between the paid app version and the regular functionality. Only English US is listed for me at the moment in languages. I tried to install the Gunze W7 diver you are talking about and have the same issues, some settings missing, can't communicate with controller and overall quirky. Im a little confused as to what functionality it gives you when its working properly over and above the gunze and wacom drivers that installed with windows 8 automatically and seemed to be great and also allow for handwriting input. Can you tell me which version of the graphics driver you have installed? Im having trouble finding a graphics driver that will both display the higher res and work with metro.

Touchscreen:
Yes my friend,if you install W7 and use that drivers, the touch pannel become to tablet PC capabilities like auto screen keyboard on all text zones, native windows secreen calibration (8-15 calibration points), the mouse cursor dissapears when you are using only the touch pannel and reapears with a mouse or stickpointer movement, IE and Metro start menu can be dragged and all W8 menus like and Ipad, i know that Vaio UX wil never have multitouch feautures but the tablet presented on W7 are really good even with the 100 clicks limitation

I gratefull recomend to you the GMA945 modded driver Sherry 1.3.2 Beta made by "Angelic Tears" and the Soldiers sans Frontiers Team is excelent, i have 2 days testing it and works really good, im still not try 3d games that i played before for comparisson like Half Life 2 or Portal but HD 720P works amazing, this drivers + GMA Booster 400mhz + SETFSB(PLL ICS9LPR321BKLF Overclocking to 1150,1 Mhz + VLC Media Player plays without glitches any 720P content is really good; i didn`t try yet 1080P videos causes im sure thats only for the Broadcom Crystal HD MiniPci Card.

-------------------Touchpanel Test UPDATE 07/18/2012------------------
[/SIZE]


Hello Guys i made another test intalling again Windows 7 and al the Drivers inlcuding the Gunze Tablet 100 Clicks limitation, everything Works good as usual the touch funtions where all there so i did a Windows 8 Update Installation, i have to say that im not a fan of carrying trash from my previous OS but for this test i do it to check if W8 could mantain the Tablet capabilities during the process and the anwer is: NO.

Im very dissapointed with this,the driver Works like the normal but with 100 clicks limitations no Pen and Touch functions where activated on Control Panel, no invisible cursor and no Windows menú Dragging. For a while i thought that it could be the Hardware 2 multitouch points requeriment of W8 after i see a HP TX2000 Tablet PC older than our Vaio UX with only 1 touch point can use the menus and draggin on this OS (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g74rQZWVhPQ) thats really anoying me.

I have like 6 months asking for anyone who has the Full versión of this Touch Driver to please TEST Windows 8 and tell us if Works?? im not found any answer, i think that the first really focus Microsoft Touch OS is here and we are not giving it any chance. I know that many of you are going to say to me that Linux is the future and etc, but im just asking for the people that pays 30 bucks on a single driver to make a test of your invesment please. I will reinstall a fresh copy of W8 and continue my tests for a couple of weeks or maybe less, im really curious about of Windows Fundamentals for Legay PC'S and i wanna give it a try, i think that W8 on the UX doesn´t has more misteries to me for now.

hello harry, only just seen this thread and have been trying to get Windows 8 working for a week now :)

Have you got a link for the Firmware Parser Driver that you used? I can'y find it on the Sony website.

Could you please post this driver? As all the links I tried on the site you posted are down, also, could you please elaborate on the "Firmware Parser Driver" recommendation? Also, how did you manage to get both cameras working? I just get the front one.. And finally, when I go to device manager, I get an unknown device INTEL(R)82801GBM(ICH7-M/U)LPC Interface Controller

Any help is much appreciated!!
