Register the Synaptics driver correctly

by Sebastian Müller On November 3rd, 2012

If you have a 64bit Windows installed and you still get the error that your driver is not installed correctly, but you did everything fine, then there is another chance.

The Synaptics driver is not being registered to the system correctly sometimes. To change that, start the command line as administrator. (press the start button, type "cmd" and press Ctrl+Shift+Enter).

Copy the following two lines and paste them there (right click > paste). Press enter to run them both. 

c:\windows\syswow64\regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\syncom.dll
c:\windows\syswow64\regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\synctrl.dll

When you got two successful message boxes, reboot and try running SynGestures ( again. That's it.
