    Just worked for us like it does with XP. What version of the software are you using? You need to use version 10 or 11

    Sometimes it can be the drivers that fix the issue. Try here

    I found problems with Win7, especially with orientation, unless the teacher was made a local administrator of the computer. Also, I think I read somewhere about a Smart Tablet driver that gets installed and can cause problems so it's usually best that is disabled in device manager.

    Smart Notebook 11 does seem 'patchy' in places. I would recommend Smart Notebook 10.8. It's not problem free, but it does work OK on Windows 7. I may end up re-visiting Smart Notebook 11 when a later build is released.

    I did notice a problem that win7 decided moving a finger up/down was a tablet gesture to swipe, other than that 10.7 worked.
