I'd like to wiggle my stylus and get the windows 8 touch keyboard to open...Kinda of like it did in windows XP and 7. Darn I wish they didn't kill the TIP (tablet input panel)!

I want to run "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\ink\TabTip.exe" with a stroke...

That sure open he touch keyboard. I wish it would open the tablet writing surface ...

Why why did they kill my TIP!!!!!

thanks,
Phillip

This opens TIP for me, but I noticed it only does so if I'm running S+ as admin (right-click StrokesPlus -> Run as Administrator):

acRunProgram("C:\\Program Files\\Common Files\\microsoft shared\\ink\\TabTip.exe","",0,1)

I'll have to look into that sometime to see why S+ can't start certain apps like Task Manager, TIP, when not running as admin.

This will run the TIP if S+ is not running as admin, but it will cause a UAC prompt:

acShellExecute("runas", "C:\\Program Files\\Common Files\\microsoft shared\\ink\\TabTip.exe", "", "", 1)
