    Is there a possibility to use the second button on the stylus for actions like left or rightclick?

    this will become handy in point and click adventures or strategy games.
    Just hover the pen over the screen and click the button to make a leftclick, or rightclick.

    I already tried the "rightclick on pen button action" in the Tablet PC settings, but it doesn't seem to do anything.

    Any suggestions?

    Um... it treats a tap as a click. AFAIK, you must tap for any click action, hover just moves the "mouse cursor."

    By default, a regular tap is "left click." Tapping with the primary button pressed is by default a "right click." That behavior can be changed, of course. If you have a two-button pen (there's only one I've heard of), the second can then be mapped to another action, like "eraser."

    I don't know how to make it register a hover + button press to anything using the regular drivers though.

    I tried using tools like autoclicker but it does not recognize the second pen button as a input.
    And yes, my stylus has a second button on the side.

    You have to install the wacom driver to configure the second button.

    Ah, that's right. No second button configuration with standard drivers, looks like.

    Beware the Wacom driver though. See other threads on how it changes calibration behavior.

    The Wacom driver is not compatible with hte Asus Vivo Tab Note yet. Rumour has it that an upgrade is in the works.

    The wacom driver works with the AVN8 if you need the 2 buttons configuration.
    But you will not be able to calibrate or to use the pen in some drawing softwares.
    I have the wacom driver, and I can use my two buttons.
