The Technical Support section of www.elotouch.com is an extensive online resource for understanding and troubleshooting touch system components (drivers, controllers, monitors, screens, computers, and other touch hardware).
To run the calibration program directly from your game: Execute EloVA.exe from your application.
To delete the Elo control panel: Rename the Elo control panel file with a .sav extension.
To suspend and restart the touch function (Windows 98 driver): Kill and restart sysmulti.exe. To kill sysmulti, hit CTRL-ALT-DEL. Touch no longer works in Windows and the COM port is released for anyone to use. You can use our touchscreen in DOS with COMDUMP for example. On exit back to Windows, hit Start/Run/sysmulti (it is found without specifying the path) and the touchscreen is working again in Windows. Code to suspend and restart the touch function under program control is available in this text file.

The Elo IntelliTouch/SecureTouch surface wave technology provides a 3rd axis for pressure (0-255). It is recommended to use this function as a relative value with user feedback, such as a gas pedal with audio feedback indicating the engine speed, or a 3D "squishy" button with more than just two states. It is not recommended to use Z to select absolute values, as it may differ from user to user, the angle of the finger, etc. The driver Control Panel must have Drag Mode selected, and the Drag Delay set to zero.
