FAQ: Does ArcPad run on Windows XP Tablet PC Edition?

Question

Does ArcPad run on Windows XP Tablet PC Edition?

Answer

Yes, and the pen input works just as it does on a Windows CE device or other pen-based Windows device. However, ArcPad is not an ink-enabled application.

There is one issue to be aware of in this OS. ArcPad has some menus that are accessed via a press and hold action with the mouse or pen. By default, on Tablet PCs, the press and hold pen action is mapped to a right-click action. You will need to disable 'press and hold for right-click' to access ArcPad tap-and-hold menus.
