    I finally got around to using this since I just reinstalled my whole system. This works really well; I've had zero problems, and it works about 96% of the time :) this is a great little program, and I'd like to say Thank You!!!

    strange, that blinking is irritating. Happens only in tablet mode.

    Actually I've noticed the blinking thing a little bit now :( . I only notice it some of the time, and usually on small parts like the menu bar; sometimes an entire installer window flashes. it does not happen all the time, but when it does it is really annoying. I'm guessing Tm2 Accelerometer is somehow interfering with DWM, or something else, not sure though (any ideas?)

    Heres a small batch file to turn it on\off.

    I've updated the 64-bit version (same download link as the first post).

    It fixes the flickering problem and fixes rotation from one portrait mode to the other.

    Oh and just tapping the rotate icon turns it off no need for a batch file. Even with the flickering version, just disabling it (via right click or tap) would stop the flickering.

    Thanks, testing the new version. Batch file was easier than going to the tray for disabling.

    I just finished a Windows 7 Sensor for the protectsmart accelerometer. This will allow other developers to use the data from the accelerometer. Since there isn't an installer, you'd have to install the driver using Device Manager. I've also updated the rotate application to work with it (it works much nicer now too). Would anybody use it if I post a download?

    Yes please! Have you made a driver?
    Will I be able to use it from managed code? Or native only?

    No way! I mean.. Yeah sure, why not? :D
    Let's see what Visual C++ and an accelerometer can do.. :)
