HID Driver as Windows Service

THIS IS WHEN YOU’RE DONE WITH INSTALLING THE HID DRIVER, FOR THAT PLEASE REFER TO THE POST CALLED “HID DRIVER INSTALL”

Hi,
So, I’ve published the HID Driver from Daniel D and the package called “MultitouchVista driver release” but I didn’t tell you what to do with the second one.
With the HID Driver, I had you guys launching all those multitouch.service.console.exe, and multitouch.driver.console.exe… not very good…
So after installing the HID Driver as instructed in one of the previous posts, here is how to install all that as Windows Service, so you’ll have just ccv to launch…

THIS IS WHEN YOUR FINE WITH THE HID DRIVER, IF NOT PLEASE REFER TO THE PREVIOUS POST.

I must warn you, the instructions are maybe missing some parts or explanations because I don’t know exactly what I did since the beginning to enable it, but I’m almost sure that’s it, and if it doesn’t work with you, just PM me on the forum or contact me, and I’ll find the missing piece…!!!
So here it is :
First have the HID driver installed as told earlier.
Then download the archive called “MultitouchVista Driver release” down here…
Extract everything somewhere you won’t delete it… (I don’t know if you can delete it after installing it, but I guess not)
Then you’ll need a command called installutil.exe in the command line of windows.
To enable this function, you have to install a windows SDK, the vista one or the win7 one. Here is a link to the win7 sdk BETA, the one I use :

http://download.microsoft.com/downl...

After installing the SDK, type in the Start Menu Search box : cmd, and launch as admin the one called CMD Shell (or the one called cmd of you have only this option)…
Navigate to the folder where you’ve extracted the archive… (using the cd command, you shoudl be able to find help on that on google, or contact me).
Then type : installutil.exe Multitouch.Driver.Service.exe and press enter.
Some crap should scrol in the box and then close it.
Now launch the services manager of windows 7 (type services in the start menu search box, it will find it.
Scroll down until you find a service called Multitouch Driver, double clic on it and then choose start to launch it.
(Some firewall can block the UDP listening of the driver, so if you have any notification from your firewall, allow the application to have acces to internet, then shutdown the service (with several try because you’ll get some error messages) and then restart it).
Close all the box, launch ccv and enable tuio protocol…
This should do the trick.
As i said, some parts could be missing so don’t panic, send me a quick feedback and I’ll help you fixing that…
Cya !!!!!

MultitouchVista Driver Release

THIS IS JUST A DOWNLOAD LINK RELEASE, NOTHING TO DO WITH THE HID DRIVER FOR WIN7 INSTALL, PLEASE REFER TO PREVIOUS POSTS FOR THAT, TO SEE WHAT TO DO WITH THIS ONE, PLEASE REFER TO THE POST “HID DRIVER AS SERVICE”
I’ve been publishing updates of the source code compiled of the MultitouchVista Driver from Daniel D codeplex page (tks Daniel), and now are the release of the driver with only the files you need to have the driver/service running.
Those release are now enough stable to be used instead of the sourcecode pack, but I’ll keep the source code updated anyway.

Here is the link to the archive :
