Newer Synaptics touchpad driver for Yoga 13 (use at your own risk)

I was messing around again with my wireless driver (see the never-ending "yoga 13 wifi issues" thread) and decided to look around for a newer touchpad driver too.  I found this one that also appears to work for the Yoga 13:

 

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS031456

 

Note:

  • After you download and run the 0wto09w8.exe, the Setup.exe program will fail with the error message "This product is not manufactured by Quanta Computer".
  • You must manually run dpinst.exe in C:\Drivers\Synaptics Touchpad Driver\Synaptic\WinWDF\x64.

This driver version is "Synaptics Pointing Device v16.3.4.29Nov 12" vs. "Synaptics Pointing Device v16.2.21.3", the latest available on the Yoga 13 driver downloads page.  The release notes are dated Nov 29, 2012 vs. the Nov 6, 2012 for the older driver but list a lot of changes between the 16.3 and 16.2 versions, too many to list here (See C:\Drivers\Synaptics Touchpad Driver\Synaptic\Release.txt).

 

I don't usually use my Yoga 13 in tablet mode, but I did a simple test and this new driver appears to still disable the touchpad in tablet mode.  I don't know of any other special touchpad behaviors for the Yoga -- Please comment if you notice anything inappropriate with this new driver.

 

I didn't actually notice any different or better behavior with this driver.  But a newer driver version MUST be better... Right?  Smiley Very Happy
