It's funny how Touchpad and Tablet support is one of the main perks that is listed for Eprime 3. We have a bunch of Asus Eee Slate EP121 Tablet-PCs with Windows 7 (64bit) that we use for Experiments in classrooms. We previously used Eprime 2.0 and it worked fine, even though programming mouse functionality was a bit awkward. Now with Eprime 3.0 nothing works anymore.
We can run our experiments, however Eprime 3 does interact with the touchpad driver in a weired way. The result is that we cannot use finger input, Eprime simply won't react to finger input or evaluate any touch on the screen as a mouseclick. We can still use the Wacom pens that we have, but that is not how we desire our experiments to work. Also, after running an experiment and using the touchpad with fingers, a setting in the Windows-7 "Control Panel/Pen and Touch" gets changed. Specifically there is a checkbox activated that should not be and that results in a semi-transparent virtual mouse being displayed on screen. It is very annoying and one has to deactivate this everytime after trying to run an experiment.
I already tried a lot, like updating driver software, and I even tried to run it under a different OS (Windows 10). All to no avail. Please help.
