Ok well I think you answered my question. You have to have a special touch screen monitor? Any suggestion on brand?

wacom works OOB and i believe N-trig (the other big touchscreen company) should work also.....

the thing is with these brands is that there only available to OEM....

as my computer (its a laptop) has a built-in wacom touchscreen and digitizer...

if you are looking around these are two good ones (if this is a external screen [and you can tell what company included the touchscreen capability] then it should come with a vista driver in case its not recognized....)

since its a derivative of the vista family there should be no problem in installing the vista driver...

Special Kit?!

This is crazy, one of the big pushes for Windows 7 was to make it more 'peripheral friendly' having to buy new kit is a big no no. 7 should work with kit already out there.

Sorry to dredge up an old post, but I'm currently questioning Microsoft's intentions with it's touch capability.

I've got a thread going here: Win 7 7068 x64 and Touch capability PROBLEM about trying to get the touch screen capability going on my machine, and haven't had a bit of luck.

Please, if any of you have any info, please post in my thread...I'd be eternally grateful (as well as +rep!) for anything that can get these 3 touchscreens to work in Windows 7 (they work just fine in XP Pro!)

Sorry but have to lol at OP as it seems he thought that windows 7 was going to enable touch on a standard screen

Some how I don't think the OP would be alone with that assumption.
