I'm running WIndows Vista Business with all current updates on a Compaq Mobile Workstation 8510w.
I suddenly started getting the message in the Subject line. The enhanced features (like scrolling) are not working on the touchpad, although the basic features still work. I tried manually running the SynTPEnh.exe program from the Synaptics folder in c:\programs, but it gave the same message.
Other postings about thsi message were solved by updating the dirver. I tried updating the driver, but Windows says I have the latest one. To verify, I went to the HP drivers site. The most recent driver there is about year older than the one installed on my system. The installed driver is 22.214.171.124 dated 6/3/2010. The Synaptics site says drivers are customized by the computer manuafacturer, and to get drivers from the manufacturer.
Any suggestions? Should I uninstall the current driver and pick the latest one on the HP drivers site?
