AMIRZ Posted September 4, 2008 Share Posted September 4, 2008 (edited) (Updated!) Xp Tablet PC PowerToys + Microsoft TPC Experience Pack ported to "Normal" Xp ( Pro, Home, MCE )Download Vista / Windows 7 Icons for TIP, Journal, Sticky Notes, Inkball (XP Tablet PC Applications):http://www.4shared.com/file/131121973/3bdfa356/Vista_7_Icons_for_TIP_Journal_Inkball_Sticky_Notes.htmlNote: Recommended: About Inking/Handwriting with recognition technologies (also for speech one as well) in Desktop PC and Laptop -> To emulate Tablet PC Behavior in PC/Laptop: Although you can still use conventional/standard Mouse (with its limitation, of course), but to make handwriting and inking more easier and better in PC/Laptop (non-Tablet) with Xp Pro/Home/MCE, then you can better use Mouse Pen Tablet Hardware for PC (recommended, e.g the ones from Wacom and Genius) which you can get only for less than $60, much cheaper than real Tablet PC, but can "convert" your Desktop/Laptop to "Tablet" too It's also more helpful than mouse if you're a Graphic Designer (by using some apps such as Corel Painter or Photoshop etc), especially when you're working with PC/Conventional Laptop. Alternatively you can just switch between them (Mouse and Mouse Pen) i.e when you're working, so you can still enhance your PC more better by having both Mouse and Mouse Pen without missing the old Mouse in your Desktop/Laptop at all...Update/fix: If you get some error messages for some games/powertoys (not all) like "Tic Tac Toe" etc:Try to make sure them installed properly/install/reinstall/repair: (same links above)-Net Framework 1.1 : http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en- And .Net Framework 1.1 SP1: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en- Then try to uninstall then reinstall (not repair) Windows Journal Viewer 1.5 at last time: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;DisplayLang=enThat's all. I hope it can help/fix the problem as well. Good luck!====================================================Screenshot of some Tablet PC Powertoys and Microsoft Experience Pack on " Normal " Xp (Pro, Home, MCE ) : Hello Everybody. Here the story goes. You can get all (or most) of all Xp Tablet PC 2005 Powertoys and some from Experience pack working properly on normal Xp (both tools and games that based on "inking and handwriting recognition"). It's still about "inking and handwriting recognition" features ported to "Normal" Xp (Pro, Home, MCE). The best thing is It can be done without extremely "converting/hacking" your Xp Pro to Tablet PC in order to get only some Tablet PC exclussive apps (otherwise other previous guides still said you have to extremely hack/convert your Xp to Tablet PC before getting them) (Why? because i can get Vista Sidebar on Xp by using "Alky" without converting it to Vista...).Because Tablet PC API and libraries are not "officially" available on Xp non tablet by default (Pro, Home, MCE). Otherwise Vista has integrated them all into one OS nicely like Vista Ultimate and Premium. Remember such as Vista Snipping Tool and inkball ported to Xp that ones from me here? OK, Here are the steps and Prerequisites/Dependencies (Just skip them if you have them already installed e.g. after installing Snipping Tool etc. Please check):Note: Not all prerequisites/dependencies are same/needed for each Xp Tablet PC powertoy, maybe just one, some, or all...Note: By installing these free stuffs from Microsoft (I just call them "Alky or Wine for Tablet" (Tablet PC dependencies for normal Xp) ) then you can also enable inking features on Office (like OneNote Journal) and get Windows Journal (not only "Journal viewer") running on "Normal" Xp instead of Xp Tablet PC only (Please also see my thread about "Windows Journal ported to Xp" here) :1. Install Net Framework 1.1 or higher -> .Net is very required as the main Tablet platformJust choose one (.Net framework 3.5 has included all) : Download .net framework 1.1 :http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;DisplayLang=enDownload .net framework 2.0 :http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;DisplayLang=enDownload .net framework 3.5:http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;DisplayLang=en etc....2. Install Windows Journal Viewer 1.5 -> Required e.g. for some inking and journal dependencies (remember inkball in "normal" Xp?)Download:http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;DisplayLang=en3. Install Tablet PC SDK 1.7 -> Required for most Tablet PC libraries/binaries/API's etcDownload:http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en4. And Last but not least : Install TPR (Tablet PC Recognizer Pack) - Also called Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 Recognizer Pack (Requires Tablet PC SDK must be installed before) - Needed to recognize handwriting before converting it to text/ or even sounds! Multilanguages/MUI: Chinese (Traditional), Chinese (Simplified), U.S. English, U.K. English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, and Spanish (Multilanguages/MUI):Though it contains "Tablet PC" name, you can still install TPR on Windows 2000 and all Windows Xp editions.Download TPR from Microsoft (80 Mb):http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en80 Mb? lol. OK, the good news is, to English User, instead of using/installing 80 Mb big size of TPR above (Multilanguages/MUI, + Tablet PC SDK must be installed before!), I recommended to just download the lite/smaller versions (only about 3 Mb guys!): - TPR English-US -> only 3,1 Mb: MD5 :3685DF4F5C9F938012A6C48B73D808AF Download :http://www.4shared.com/file/61605471/ef2a9...ishUSSetup.html - TPR English-UK -> only 2,86 Mb: MD5 : F3BF28CBBAC7D02E2303851D3154D4F3 Download :http://www.4shared.com/file/61606098/1dc90...ishUKSetup.htmlNote: if you get some error messages for some games/powertoys (not all) like "tic tac toe", then try to uninstall then reinstall (not repair) Windows Journal Viewer 1.5 at last time. Hopefully works.After that, just download free-UniExtract (Universal Extractor), some animal like WinZip but mainly for extracting some files from any compressed executables/installers (such as .msi, exe, 7 zip self extractor, installshield format etc) without installing them at all: Download the latest version of UniExtract (Universal Extractor)-freeware from legroom:http://legroom.net/software/uniextractThen Go to Microsoft Download website: Download some or all Xp Tablet PC Powertoys that you like:http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloa...s/tabletpc.mspxIf you try to install them manually, you will get error message like "This application can be installed only on Xp Tablet PC" etc. So that what Universal Extractor is for. Just extract them by using UniExtract context menu/Right click (Since each installer is in different format with each other as i said, just follow instruction from it and try it yourself...)After they have already been extracted, place their folders to e.g. C:\Program Files folder (The default path for them in Xp Tablet PC is usually C:\Program Files\PowerToys for Tablet PC) then try to double click their main executables for running them. Usually done for most of them, and just create your own shorcut-(self explanatory).OK, for your convenience, i have also uploaded some of Xp Tablet PC powertoys here (already extracted, you can just run their exe without installing anything!)- For further information about them, just go to MS Xp Tablet PC PowerToys website above...If you are interested with them just download more/the remaining ones there if available...1.

Microsoft Experience Pack for Windows Vista ported to Xp :http://www.wincert.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=5033Note: if you get some error messages for some games/powertoys (not all) like "tic tac toe", then try to uninstall then reinstall (not repair) Windows Journal Viewer 1.5 at last time. Hopefully works.That's all. Hopefully they can make us happy, at least just for having fun...(Still Good enough to enrich the Xp GUI?) Thanks for your attention and good luck! And once again, Long live Xp (for all editions)!==============================================================Please Note: Since some app files might have been "patched" or "compressed" (packed) to work properly on another Xp OS editions etc and it might be a necessary effort for that beside the installing code itself, then some "false alarm" or "false positive" may happen to some clean exe installers/apps /installation process (rare) although they are actually clean and safe and does not pose a threat to your system.. The term false positive is used when antivirus software wrongly classifies an innocuous ( inoffensive ) file as a virus. The incorrect detection may be due to heuristics or to an incorrect virus signature in a database.Usually some great and famous antiviruses (such as Kaspersky, AVG, Norman, McAfee, etc) won't have the such problem so far bcoz they will work better. If that happens, then you can simply ignore it and continue installing as it's guaranteed actually 100% safe and clean by me. But again, it's still 100% your own choice and right to decide.CREDITS TO : Xprox from Wincert (Thx alot mate, nice idea to porting them also for your kind support!), MSDN, Microsoft, MS Technet, MS Research, CodeProject, Rafael, fediaFedia (Thx alot you are the best), Vishal Gupta (My "Guru" in Xp to Vista reverse engineering), My Indonesian Friends in customization and programming language VB .Net, C etc in Win-PowerToy: Ilham, Gun-Tour, Jenny, Farid, thx alot you are the best and absolutely finally Wincert for this great forum and great people. Still many persons i can't mention, again, thx alot to you all! ==============================================================PS : Also to Sull (Wincert Moderator) and others, this thread is also my answer about how to apply "inking and handwriting" app and deploy Tablet PC platform to "Normal" Xp without extremely hacking/converting it to Xp Tablet PC (as previous guide still requires it). (Otherwise Vista has integrated them nicely into just one OS (Premium/Ultimate) without separating them like previous Windows). At least you can get most (if not all) of them, included Windows Journal, Inkball, Sticky Notes, (all of them have been ported successfully from Vista to Xp), some Tablet PC PowerToy, Microsoft Tablet PC Experience Pack, and now im still researching to port Tablet PC input panel to normal Xp as well as Vista Ultimate input panel/skinned from TPC (I know we can get it/them by applying previous guide such "Xp Ultimate Edition" etc but i try to avoid it since some of my legacy drivers get error by using both or either converted and original versions of Tablet PC OS. So this is my only way...).Also, because if we are talking about "perfect" Vista to Xp port, not just only about Windows Vista Games and Sidebar but we can't also abandon some Vista Ultimate/Premium Tablet PC component included Vista Snipping Tool, Inkball, Sticky Notes, Journal, etc that i'm bringing here (if you like them, they all are basically Tablet PC components! Because of "Inking" or "handwriting" features)...but once again, it's just my personal opinion, of course you are not required to totally get this or 'em all, just follow your heart...and need.... - Get Microsoft Experience Pack (Vista version) and Windows 7 Math Input Panel etc ported to Xp: http://www.wincert.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=5033- Get Vista Snipping Tool, Sticky Notes, Inkball for Xp:http://www.wincert.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=4069Get Windows Journal for Xp:http://www.wincert.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=4276- Tablet PC Input Panel for Xp Pro, Home, MCE :http://www.wincert.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=5023 Edited September 9, 2009 by AMIRZ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
