I am using my Asus UL30JT with Windows 8.

I installed Elan Smart-pad driver 11.14.1.3. It basically works just fine, I have all the gestures and stuff. However, to adjust the settings I have to launch regedit.exe, because the window appears to be broken. Under Mouse -> Elan Tab -> Options I see this:

1

Do you know how to fix that? Also, if you have a similar program, can you at least send me screens of what I can change? As I said, I am editing registry right now and I need some guidance what I can actually do :)


@HaydnWVN I am using registry, because it is the only way to change something. for example - make the area, where gestures react, a bit smaller. Because othewise, on my rather small touchpad I was always triggering random gestures. I fixed that by changing the field of effect to something a bit smaller.

I found it myself.

@Karan Yep, I installed and reinstalled everything, over and over again. Many versions, older, newer, Asus original, only Elans. Sometimes I even forced drivers from completely unrelated, newer laptop models. The best I got was to launch that settings window, however it was a bit faulty driver and it disabled almost everything. Even Microsoft Driver for PS/2 mouse was better.

Explain why you are going into the Registry to change settings and why/where you found this information. –  HaydnWVN Dec 3 '12 at 15:41
    
Have you tried reinstalling the driver and associated software? –  Karan Dec 4 '12 at 22:11

Go to the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Elantech\SmartPadDisplay and change all values to 1. This fixed the problem for me.

This did not change anything for me, even after a restart and confirming the values had been set to 1. –  Jess Riedel May 21 at 4:51

Get the driver from Samsung. It worked. It uses a different UI.

This is an old version which does not support Windows 8 gestures (e.g. swipe from right edge to get the charms bar). However, it works perfectly with the hardware and the configuration ui works. –  Michael Tsang Dec 16 '12 at 15:12
