Re: x61TableWinndows 8 beta?

Hi, you said that all of your installs works fine, which Win8 version do you used, 32bit or 64bit? Because for me the "ThinkPad Tablet Button Driver" for CP-64bit doesn't work, I loaded the "7jgl10ww" file. Have anyone else these problems?

Hi obaz!

 

Our friend GMAC-R60 retired gracefully from the community, and we miss him Smiley Sad.

 

His posts were pertaining to last September's Windows 8 Developer Preview, not the current Consumer Preview. 

 

Hopefully other X61 Tablet users will come by and share their Consumer Preview experiences!

@obaz My fingerprint scanner works fine. I just had to use the windows auto update to find the right drivers. UPEK TouchChip Fingerprint Coprocessor (WBF advanced mode) version 1.4.0.275

Re: x61TableWinndows 8 beta?

No tablet buttons on my pen-only X61T (7769-A67)...I never use FPR so I wouldn't know whether it works or not...

 

Apart from that. the machine feels pretty snappy, even with a slow 5400rpm HDD...

Cheers,

George
