The lack of HID drivers on the Samsung Q1 series of UMPC has plagued us for a while; early Vista builds had few issues, but the final release is a little more…shall we say….stringent on the Tablet PC functional requirements. Like many others, I miss the ability to ink my e-mails in Outlook 2007, for example.
A little elbow grease combined with solid technical knowledge provides a short term solution: Ctitanic tricks his Office 2007 installation into allowing the Ink Tool button. He has the registry key information right here for you, but be warned: the key is reset upon reboot. I’ll personally wait for the long term solution: a set of HID drivers from Samsung. Perhaps upon the release of the Samsung Q1P with Vista pre-installed?
