Windows 7: Invert external touchscreen but not monitor

22 Jun 2012   #1

Win 7 Professional 32 bit
Invert external touchscreen but not monitor


I have an unusual scenario:
HP mini (netbook) with Win 7 installed and an external capacitive touchscreen from visualtouchworld for use as car computer. I need to rotate the touchscreen 180 deg but NOT the monitor because of interference and the location of the touch controller. I had to purchase a new touchscreen because the last one's controller got ripped off when I installed a switch.

I did the 16 point windows calibration and it registered my touch completely wrong in one corner so the whole calibration gets screwed up. I've tried multiple times and raised the screen an extra 1/8" to make sure there were no false readings from the screen possibly touching the monitor. I tried using visualtouchworld's drivers but the calibration doesn't work. Does anyone know how to invert the touchscreen? It was pretty easy to do with Linux but my netbook doesn't have the hardware to support meego v1.2 (plus Windows is much better for touch-interface than the distro I was using). I've searched for workarounds and calibration software without much luck... I can install Win 8 because I get it from my school, would you recommend using that?
