Mediasmart Not working

Hi everyone I am new to this forum, first I would like to say Hi to everyone,
Ok I got HP Windows 7 Upgrade a week on Friday, so I was like so excited in getting it installed, only to have severe problems at the time with N-trig with which I managed to fix myself, then Mediasmart fails to work properly, I have a HP Tx2 1250EA Touchsmart Laptop, Windows 7 was designed specially for the Touchsmart computers in mind, now what the problem is when I go to draw a wave M shape with 2 fingers spaced aparet it is supposed to open up Mediasmart, but does Not work at all in Windows 7 after N-trig is updated, now I have been in regular conatct with HP about this, they of no use at all, as all I am told is to uninstall then reinstall the Mediasmart software, I mean I have had to do several Recover back to Factory setting because all of this, I just want Windows 7 to work with all my software without any problems or I might go back to Vista, it is time, and money wasted, I really need some help on this matter if anyone else has had the same issues like I am having, I would really appreciate a fix to this ongoing problem please!!!!

Mant Thanks in advance

I had the same problem but I worked it out. I uninstalled MediaSmart as instructed by the upgrade, but when I reinstalled it, it didn't work. This was after I had downloaded the programs from hp and reinstalled them. I corrected it finally by running them as Vista thru the windows compatibilty wizard. Start/search/run. one of the choices should be "window 7 compatibility" wizard. run that and see if it solves your problem.
