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


Does ArcPad run on Windows XP Tablet PC Edition?


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.
