Here for all other who want a short overview how to run the system:
This is from the multitouchvista site:
Multitouch service can be started using
You can install this service as a windows service using installutil.exe
&#xwi;ndir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\installutil.exe /i Multitouch.Service.exe
Driver for Windows 7 ist located in Driver directory.
To install run Install driver.cmd.
After installing driver you have to start driver service.
This can be done by starting multitouch service followed by Multitouch.Driver.Console.exe.
Or you can just install Multitouch.Driver.Service.exe as a windows service using
&#xwi;ndir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\installutil.exe /i Multitouch.Driver.Service.exe.
Remember, if you install driver as a windows service, you don’t have to install multitouch service. It is already integrated in driver service.
After installing windows services you have to start them. Press “Start” button, type services.msc and then press “enter”. “Services” window will open. Find Multitouch input or Multitouch driver in the list and start it.
The main problem when starting the system with the console applications is that you have to consider the right order of execution:
First start the Multitouch.Service.console and afterwards start the Multitouch.driver.console.(I struggled a whole day to realize this) .
If you install the system as a “real” service with the installutil.exe everything should work right from the start.
When the system is running you have to select the right inputprovider with the Multitouch.configuration.wpf.exe (default is multimice, so you have to switch to TUIO.
MultitouchVista uses port 3333 for TUIO listening)
The naming of the system components is in my eyes a little misleading. First you install a real HID-driver and afterward you start a driver.exe (which is only a communication gateway to the HID-driver).
So you are tempt to start the driver.exe first and afterward start the service.exe, but this doesn’t work.
