    Hello all,
    Today I started working on an app to test Windows 8 touch capabilities with my Synaptics touchpad. The app kind of works at the moment, but only with one touch point. I haven't figured out how to get the number of the touch point in the touchpad packet data.

    How To:
    Download the app (link below) and run the SynapticsToTouch.exe. It should work now, try using your touchpad. You may want to calibrate your touchpad with the Calibrate button. Click it and follow the instructions.

    Download v0.3 alpha: https://github.com/downloads/Digiex/SynapticsToTouch/SynapticsToTouch_v0.3_c3902b3a54.zip
    Source code: https://github.com/Digiex/SynapticsToTouch/

    Please report any bugs you find in the issue tracker or in this thread :)

    Maybe you can add pressing the alt key to stop the cursor and use the cursor on windows 8?
    I'm not sure if this would interfere with your program. (see image)

    My program disables the touchpad as a mouse input device so that should not interfere as the synaptics app does not get packets from the touchpad at all.
