I am considering now after 6 months to go back to Win 8. I primarily use an external mouse, but here are times I misplace it and have to use my touch pad so I cannot disable it. Now that I have windows 10 installed my erratic touchpad is back. I tried what you suggested. I have tried everything that has been mentioned in this thread. I haven't installed the new smart gesture software because I don't see the need. My laptop and my touchpad was fully working but yesterday my touchpad was off.
Each time I go back into Smart Gesture all of the settings are not checked. It came with W10 and has the latest drivers, but many times the cursor seems to get stuck or move very slowly despite the fact I have increased sensitivity and use enhanced precision. Hi I can't uninstall 'Asus Smart Gesture' in order to install a new version which can disable the touchpad. The Device Manager always shows an Asus Support Device not Asus Touchpad. I tried the driver you have up here, along with the one posted on the support page for my model, and a couple other random Asus touchpad drivers. I was looking for updating the driver, Microsoft said my driver was up-to-date.
Thanks Since the Win 10 Anniversary Update, I have lost the auto disconnect of the touchpad, when I connect a wireless mouse. It can't do an upgrade because you have the same ProductCode. It is recommended to choose a pro version of such a program and then re-install the driver. I deleted it and Smartgesture still worked, so there's that. Contact your support personnel or package vendor.
Hi, after the upgrade to Windows 10, Asus Smart Gesture stopped working. Maybe if I try re-installing Elan? If you are unable to find the ideal solution to the problem, you may want to follow the steps in this asus smart gesture not working error. But, seems like its not functioning, as I still couldn't scroll down or scroll up a page with 2 fingers. The bottom line is that I want to disable my touchpad. I think I may have inadvertently tricked windows into thinking the rolled-back-repaired 8. But scrolling on the touchpad is very fast and three fingers does not work. I need to turn off tapping.
This tool will work on Windows 7, 8, 8. List goes on, I could post the Asus elan driver and registry tweak file if wanted… My pad finally works! Edit: The msi package for now doesn't support upgrade. Is there a way for me to make it work on windows 10? It will not install itself. I have tried the repair function from a download and from the control panel, programs list, to no avail. Would happily buy you a beer if you know the answer. No idea why it works, but some of the best practices while working with msi is to keep the name of the installers same. Thank you Ivan for keeping this thread.
It came with Windows 10 installed. I downloaded SmartGesture from your site and reinstalled again, but it needs to be completely uninstalled before. I upgraded to the Ver4012 driver and it fixed the problem. It's kind of the exact opposite of how Win 10 upgrades are supposed to be, but then most of the time Win 7 tried to install a third party driver it found by itself it would break windows, so it's no surprise that Win 10 breaks when it gleefully finds these things and installs them. How do I replace it? Simply, We missed a lot to our smart gesture -,-. I upgraded to Windows 10 and encountered the same issues as you, touch pad working but Asus Smart Gestures were not.
Save the file and make a shortcut to it. I used different version of smart gesture but problem stays the same. After it restarted the problem was gone. Please help me control this touch pad that seems to have a mind of its own. Your article looks helpful and full of handy tips.
After installing smart gestures the internal and external keyboard usb and wireless and the touchpad was disabled. After a few restarts my computer suddenly prompted it was upgrading my drivers. Because I think it was an update on the Elan driver that fucked everything up. I removed it and Scrolling was much faster and smoother. When I went to the application list, I saw Asus Smartgesture located in the list. I have Asus Transformer book flip tp300ld. It would be good to know how to get there to find future updates.
