    Working fine here, thank you. However, how fast is normal switching? It takes about the same time as the button press.

    Is this only enabled for slate mode, or will it start switching it up if my leg starts to twitch?

    Either way thanks a bunch for taking the initiative, this is one of the biggest features I've missed in the tm2.

    Strange thing here with the x64 version: It quits as soon as it should rotate :S

    Please make sure you have the Visual C++ 2010 redistributable.

    x64: Download details: Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x64)

    x86: Download details: Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86)

    Also this requires the HP ProtectSmart Driver, it is known to work with version 4.1.1.1.

    Here is an update for x64: http://compugeeksoftware.com/softwar...ometer/fix.zip

    Open Task Manager and switch to the processes tab. Then find tm2_accelerometer.exe, select it and click end process.

    Open C:\Program Files\CompuGeek Software\tm2 accelerometer\ in explorer. Replace the existing files with the ones in the zip.

    That should fix the delay and some rotational issues.

    Still a no go for me with x64. Installed the x64 version, Protectsmart, Visual C++, & x64 update. It doesn't crash but the screen doesn't rotate when I rotate the tablet in any direction.

    Same here, not working properly, it only rotates into one position regardless of how I am holding it. Maybe it needs a little bit of a calibration tool as I think it could be that the accelerometer gives back different values than on CompuGeeks TM2.

    Just an Idea.

    Same here. I have 3D drive guard 4.0.3.1 (the one that came with the notebook). I could only find inf files for the 4.1.1.1.

    SOLVED: Go to device manager and manually update the HP Mobile Data Protection Sensor's driver to this one (4.1.1.1):

    Thank you CompuGeek, kudos With some calibration it will work flawlessly (right now it rotates about 15% of times).

    What do you think about disabling rotation when it's in notebook mode? Right now it rotates the screen upside down :S
    PM me if you need help understanding sensor data (accidental movement, shakiness on a train or in a bus, difference between rotation and fast movement up, left or right, etc etc). I have experience with windows mobile accelerometers.

    I have the app installed, no error showed up. But it doesnt keep running in background. Looking at the task manager, after double click the exe file in ProgramFiles folder, tm2_accelerometer.exe show up for about 1 second, and dissappeared! I have driver, .net, and Visual C++ installed...
