    Actually I install the created certificate into Trusted Root Certification Authorities, it's still error 10. I also forced installed other vendors drivers, they all return error 10, the device cannot start. So is this driver designed for my device?
    In hardware ID zone, I got USB\VID_0EEF&PID_0001&REV_0100 in first line and USB\VID_0EEF&PID_0001 in second line.

    Urgh, Win8RP doesn't like "display1_downscalingsupported" it seems, every time I set it and then restart my monitor remains black, worked nicely in Win8CP

    *bamp* ... (less important text is grey)

    Hi folks, i'm new here. Nice forum, thanks for the help so far.

    I'm really interested in this affair, too. I'm testing Win 8 beta right now with a seperate HDD.

    I have a "Lilliput" Touchscreen with exactly that eGalax TouchKit. It was previously mounted in my car (running WinXP...), but today my cell phone is much better and faster in navigation and entertaining than the "car-pc" ever was, so i stripped that setup down and "renaturalized" the car with a phone dock.

    So i wanted to "recycle" the touchscreen now with Windows 8 as additional "metro-monitor" at my quite new machine. Wow, finally Microsoft delivers a really new and useful application for my screen!
    Mounted it 45 degree, next to my keyboard, above my mouse.
    On first sight it performs nice and handy and metro stays on this display while classical desktops stay on the other two big screens. Really nice so far.


    But it's handicapped. I know this solution will never deliver multitouch but there is no swiping at all since it's recognized just as a mouse as you discribed it here. No real "touch feeling".

    I have an "older" convertible laptop, too, that has a touchscreen. This one is "HID-compliant" and works much better when testing Win 8. Swiping no problem.


    As you all mentioned, I installed a 32-Bit Win 8 on my main machine to test those mentioned beta-drivers. With (every incarnation of) them it works fine. Swiping, display keyboard and stuff. Like on the convertible.
    But 32 Bit is no option later on a machine having 32GB of RAM.

    So, reinstalled the Win8_x64, I tried all the way discribed to certificate this x64 beta driver. Every step worked! (It's not an absolute n00b writing here )
    The created driver is installed and recognized successfully, I deactivated forced driver singing of course.
    But I also just get as far as to an error code 10 (0x0a), that the device could not be started then.

    I used WinMerge to compare the inf-files for differences with the inf-files of (those working) 32-Bit incarnations. No differences except the x64-stuff, looks like a standard 64-bit compliant for me. IDs are all correct. Of course i have not (/could not) look into the drivers *.sys-files.

    Of course one could buy a more modern capacitive touchscreen. But where would be the fun in that? And also i refuse to do, 'cause in the end, it's a toy. So up to now, metro is more (interesting!) playing than working output. One should keep that in mind.
    Although "this tiny additional touch on your desk" already performs nice as media player controller and even Media Center (MCE) controller and display, averting you with some television while browsing for other things or doing the correspondance. With the touch instead of mouse you even more quickly jump over the annoying commercials in the program.


    So I hope this thread stays alive. I think you can gain benefit out of controversial metro with having a touch. But showing, that "old stuff" can do the thing, too!

    Thanks for reading.

    Heyho, interesting reply Dagobert!
    I tried a litte bit around with this driver. Unfortunately not *that* successfully ;-)
    It does not work when installed alone (fresh Win8). What I can say, the eGalax Screen changes at least from it's not working Usbmini-Beta-Driver to "unknown device" when installing the new driver from ideacom. So at least there is some interaction. I tried a little bit replacing files between those two drivers, but without further success.
    At least, looking deeper, the device id's do not match.
    While the usbmini has the known
    %eGalax.DeviceDesc0% = usbmini, USB\VID_0EEF&PID_0001
    the ideacomuses several more (and different) lines
    %IdcInst% =idcInst,USB\VID_1CB6&PID_6680
    %IdcInst% =idcInst,USB\VID_1CB6&PID_6681
    %IdcInst% =idcInst,USB\VID_1CB6&PID_1681
    %IdcInst% =idcInst2,USB\VID_1CB6&PID_6690

    %IdcInst% =idcInst2,USB\VID_1CB6&PID_6680&MI_00
    %IdcInst% =idcInst2,USB\VID_1CB6&PID_6681&MI_00
    %IdcInst% =idcInst2,USB\VID_1CB6&PID_1681&MI_00
    %IdcInst% =idcInst2,USB\VID_1CB6&PID_6690&MI_00

    %IdcInst% =idcInst2,USB\VID_1CB6&PID_6650&MI_00
    %ETTInst% =idcInst,USB\VID_22B9&PID_6681
    %ETTInst% =idcInst2,USB\VID_22B9&PID_6681&MI_00

    Is there any point of start changing the ID's there? Which driver to what? Uses usbmini.inf with idcfltr.sys or other way around or just add 0EEF&PID_0001 in idcfltr.inf? Of course all the certificate stuff has to be re-done then.
    I'm not so much into drivers. It's more a trail&error right now. Would appreciate any suggestions directing to a solution and think there will be way more eGalax users when Win8 gets to final stages.

    Normally, there's always a pid/vid check in the driver entrance, if the pid/vid don't match, the driver do nothing. So changing the inf file cannot make sense.

    win 7


    Hi, i install Win 8 on my CarPC. ZOTAC ION ITX F-E mainboards and LinITX 7" Sunlight Readable Widescreen VGA/Composite with Touchscreen - 500 cd/m2 ( link: LinITX.com - LinITX 7" Sunlight Readable Widescreen VGA/Composite with Touchscreen - 500 cd/m2). During installation I use an normal monitor and than I have connected my Car LinItx monitor. I install eGalax driver from EETI eGalax Touch . But the touch screen not work at all. Windows only recognizes the touch screen as a mouse. So the same problem as net8021.
    I appreciate any help.

    Heyho Guys!

    Just wanted to say i tried several changes and re-combinations of the availiable driver, files, IDs as mentioned before, but without any success. Still "device could not be started" error 10 (0x0a). Think you were right.
    I'm going to give up the project. Always this ordeal with the signing and stuff. Ev'thing unhandy as my testing Win8 ist not really arranged. It's not funny anymore . Throw the "touch"screen, forget about it, don't waste precious time.

    Anyway, so will enjoy Win8 just on the laptop.

    Good luck to other tries.
