Microsoft launched the Touch Pack for Windows 7 last year to help showcase some of the touchscreen capabilities of Windows 7. But it was only available to OEMs, which meant that if your computer didn’t come with Microsoft Touch Pack preloaded, you couldn’t install it yourself… until now.

Yesterday Microsoft released the Touch Pack for Windows 7 as a free download for all Windows 7 users with supported hardware. You need a multitouch display to install the Touch Pack.

I tried to install it on a Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t running Windows 7 Starter and was told it wouldn’t work because the computer can only handle a single touch input. But it should work with the Asus Eee PC T91MT or T101MT or other touchscreen tablets running Windows 7 Home Premium and up.

The Touch Pack comes with 6 apps, including 3 games, an interactive globe, a photo organization app, and a “screen saver and interactive water simulation.”

  1. unless that lenovo is a loaner, i guess you could always turn the starter into a premium. That is, if it has a MT screen in the first place…
