    Tiles don't work


    I dual booted on a tablet pc (HP TouchSmart tx2) and when I tap a tile nothing happens (the tile shows the tapping animation but that application doesn't open), but if I click it with the mouse or pen it works.

    Have you installed all the drivers?

    What about software that might be required in addition to the drivers?
