I have just set up a new computer with Windows 7 HP x64 in an office. This setup has two screens, screen one is a regular LCD that is behind the reception counter for the person at the desk to work from and the second screen is a 24" iiyama touch screen on a mounted swivel arm which is used by customers to view and browse the company's website.
The issue I am having is when the touch screen is being used it prevents the mouse being used on screen 1. I understand that the touchscreen is being seen by Windows as USB input device - as a mouse - and will only allow one mouse input to be used at any given time. This is a big problem for me as the person at the desk is always working on documents, emails etc and the use of a mouse is a must at all times.
My question therefore is, can the mouse and touchscreen be used at the same time? I don't mind if this requires additonal software - or even hardware if really neccesary - to be able to do this.
My thanks in advance.
