Enable touch on HP 2740p with Windows 8.1

After upgrading my HP 2740p from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 I lost touch.  The Wacom pen input still worked.  I re-installed PenTablet_533-3.exe and Wacom Digitizer Driver 3.0.7.24 – sp52863.exe (in that order) but touch wasn’t restored.

It wasn’t until I opened Window’s Control Panel, searched for Touch, launch the Touch Settings app, and run through the 16-point calibration was touch restored.

Touch Settings (WTouchCPL.exe) on my system is installed to C:\Program Files\WTouch

    Slightly off topic, but how (what) did you do in terms of a graphics driver for Win 8.x on your 2740p?

    Ryan,

    Wanted to drop you a quick line. Threw a 1.8″ Samsung 120gb SSD in the 2740p (pulled from a Lenovo). Huge improvement.

    Also, Windows 10 Tech Preview, installs seamlessly on it and runs great. You might want to give it a try. Heck, since the 2740p shipped with Windows 7 Pro, you should also receive a free upgrade to Windows 10 when it launches per their recent announcements.

    I’m really impressed at how well it handles Win10. Quick install too.
