Default Sony Vaio touchpad

I want to disable the "click" function on the touchpad. I had it
turned off under Vista, and I keep accidentally "clicking" on
items now.

Sony has no Windows 7 drivers available for this model, and the
Vista drivers won't load.

I installed Win 7 on a separate partition, so I still have my
Vista partition available. I tried executing
vccpointingdevice.exe under Win 7, and I got an error message
that Snyutils.dll wasn't found.

Anybody know how to change the settings on the touchpad under
these conditions?

I have and have had several LP's with touch pads. They all had controls for
the touch pad that had nothing to do with the OS. Did you look in the
control panel? All of mine have it under the mouse. There is always ways to
change the way the touch pad works.

Thanks, but the problem is that those controls are provided by
the laptop vendor. When I installed Windows 7, that wiped out all
the vendor stuff.

The good news is that I found the solution. I'm posting it
separately.

I found the solution.

After downloading several drivers that would not load because the
install app said they were either not for this model or not for
this OS, I found the answer he

or

I found the Sony Alps Pointing Device Update 7.0.501.5 for Vista,
and it loaded successfully on this machine.

I suspect that the critical factor was that the update was for an
"FZ" model of Sony Vaio.

I still rely on a usb mouse. Never did master the mouse "touch-pad"
after all these years.

About your USB stick... does it plug into a different model 'puter
correctly? Win XP? The 64-bit might be a snag?

Best,

It works on this machine if I boot Vista rather than Win 7. I
have the 32-bit version of both.

Makes me curious too. I use a couple of those things all the time. So far
they both work fine with the 32 and 64 bit versions of Vista, but if they
will not work with W-7 that could be a PITA.

Both my USB sticks work in Win7 64bit, one is an Easy Disk and the
other doesn't have any brand name.
