Universal Pointer Device Driver Download Install Update
If using UPDD 4. These notes should be followed to install the UPDD 5. The software is licensed software and as such requires a license per system when the production version of the software is installed. Unless otherwise requested, the software is distributed via email as an HTTP link, in either compressed. ZIP format or in an executable. There are separate files for 32 and 64 bit systems.
Supported Windows desktop OS. XP service pack 3 introduces significant and important updates relevant to USB hardware support and driver interaction that we consider it essential for the correct functioning of our driver. Please ensure any XP systems are upgraded to SP3 before installing our driver. It is our general recommendation that these operating systems are kept up-to-date with the latest service packs. It can be downloaded from the Microsoft web site at http: The setup program is placed on the CD alongside a autorun.
Insert the CD and the autorun file automatically invokes the setupnn. Uninstall previous touch drivers As a matter of course it is highly recommended that any other non UPDD touch drivers be uninstalled followed by a system reboot prior to installing UPDD. The environment variable and folder must exist.
The component to expand cabinet archive files must also exist. This allows the driver to discover the device once connected and take the appropriate action, avoiding conflict with the Windows device management. This completes registration between the device and UPDD. DO NOT cancel the wizard as it is possible the touch device will not work. The driver will, where possible, automatically take control of USB devices configured in the package.
To rectify this problem uninstall the existing driver software or remove the device created in the device manager by the other driver and reinstall UPDD. If this is not possible manually associate UPDD with the device. USB PnP devices, supported by the driver, will be added automatically as they are connected to the system; however you will need to adjust the desktop association to newly discovered devices.
See the Multi monitor and multi device documentation for further information. One of the less obvious dependencies is the use of RegEdit during install to set up the registry. If RegEdit is not present all selections and dropdowns are blank.
When using UPDD pre 5. However, with UPDD 5. This interface is used on all Windows 8. However, there are some restrictions: We have not been able to reproduce this install issue. If you do find that the touch screen is not working after install then: It always worked on the 2 nd attempt.
Signed drivers Our driver and utility programs carry an Authenticode Certificate. An Authenticode digital signature guarantees that the software was produced by the individual or company named in the certificate, which has been verified by the authority that issued the certificate.
However, not all builds of our driver will be WHQL digitally signed. Windows will automatically show a warning dialog if a digitally unsigned driver is installed. Some UPDD installs, that are installing an unsigned driver, have been configured to automatically handle the warning dialog. Other UPDD installs have been configured to not handle the warning dialog, leaving the user to handle the dialog, as seen below; Windows can be configured to not allow the installation of unsigned drivers.
Drivers have been identified as one of the major causes for the past instability of Windows. UPDD cannot on its own be submitted for approval. It can only be approved with the pointer device. Where UPDD has been submitted to Microsoft with appropriate hardware it has passed all tests and been approved and digitally signed. You may or may not be installing a signed version of this driver but you should not be unduly concerned if you are installing an unsigned version.
For more information the WHQL and digital signature documentation. Given that signing is related to the driver and controller combination we can either supply a driver that only supports a signed controller s or the driver may support many controllers, some signed and some not. In this case the driver is only signed when using a signed controller. If a supported controller is used, that has not been signed, the system will indicate that this is not a signed combination.
Sysprep utilization Sysprep and Win PE is an environment that is designed for system administrators, Original Equipment Manufacturers OEMs and others who must automatically deploy the Windows operating system on multiple computers. Utilising UPDD in these environments you must enable the kernel mode operation. This has been seen on some systems running Windows 7 that have been reverted to XP. When these systems hibernate or standby they do not return as expected and the system appears totally dead.
We suspect this may be a BIOS issue on these particular systems. However, we have experimented with not passing on this IRP request and in tests this did not have any ill effect and the system resumed correctly. We would consider this function to be a hack to overcome a hardware issue and should be used with caution. In the majority of cases the supplied setup program will be invoked to install the driver. In some situations, such as installing the minimum component, you may want to control the files that are installed on the system and this is covered in Manual install section.
Installation of the driver must been performed whilst logged on as a user with Administration rights. Please note this is not the same as running as an Admin user. The user account must have Administration rights. If you do not have these rights then in some OS you can right click on the setup. ZIP file or download the setup program from the http link provided and then run the appropriate setup program. Prior to installing, you should uninstall any UPDD version 3 or 4 driver.
You can optionally install over previously installed UPDD version 5 drivers. Once invoked, the install initially checks that the OS is supported will issue a notice if not and cease installation. In the latter case you need to request a setup with the required support. If the OS is supported the standard install running the setup program without any parameters will show a list of supported controllers in this build. In the above example the supplied driver supports 2 USB devices and 1 serial device.
If installing for a non PnP touch device, such as a serial device, you need to select the controller from the list. If you select a serial controller you will be able to define the serial port. Additional non-PnP devices can also be added after install as required. Keyboard hotkeys, via the Alt key, can be used to control the install dialog. Up and down arrow keys can be used to traverse the controller list, Alt C to cancel and Alt I to continue with install.
During install the system may issue certain warning dialogs, such as the installation of a non signed driver if installing a non signed version of our driver! Once the install has completed and all being well the touch should now be active albeit not calibrated. If the cursor does not react and calibration fails then try rebooting the system — a reboot is currently needed for Win 8. If touch is still not working after install and reboot please refer to the troubleshooting section below.
Running setup —s indicates that no UPDD install dialogs are to be shown. Default settings for the touch controller are used unless a clone file is found in which case the settings in the clone file are used. Only the first serial or Virtual device , if any are supported in the driver bundle, is configured.
In both case, PnP devices will be handled as soon as they are discovered by the driver. Indicates that there is no default serial or virtual device if supported in the bundle configured automatically. In this case PnP devices will be automatically detected but serial or virtual devices, if supported in the package, will need to be added automatically.
Reinstall with silent option. Starting with version 5. Does not replace the settings file. Provide default values for new setting values.
This is unlikely to be significant functionally. Performing a comparison of previous and new settings files might show differences attributable to this. This provides for an upgrade installation in many scenarios. Due to the wide range of legacy versions and software configurations that could be upgraded this process cannot be guaranteed.
If using for a business critical rollout then a check must first be made that a successful upgrade is achieved for each version to be upgraded. The silent option will hide all dialogs, with the exception of any critical errors, including a restart warning message that could be issued due to a number of factors, such as the inability to stop the current device driver: This being the case it is advisable to restart the system after installing with —sr.
Important silent install mode considerations: Silent install suppresses UPDD install dialogs. However there is always a possibility that system dialogs will be shown, either because you are installing an unsigned version of the driver or because UAC Windows 7 user access control settings dictate that the system seeks permission before changes are made to the system by the installer.
Total silent install can only be achieved if the driver is signed and UAC is configured such that no user prompts will be issued or run with the correct administrator privileges.
This process will create a.
