  1. Spent many a minute here seeking resolve for Touchpad Driver issue on my Win8.1 Dell D530. Today after 5 different installs (some from your Trackpad Page) I’ve found one that works for me: which is 8.1200.101.209, (not shown yet on your Touchpad Driver page)
    SO THRILLED! It’s been a constant battle, maybe something to due with the Win8 evolution, me supposes?

    1. I got told 8.1200.101.217 worked on a Latitude D630 with Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. These systems should have shared the same driver. I will add 8.1200.101.209 to the page.
