MonitorMouse for Windows CE is available now via download from the Elo Web site at www.elotouch.com. It will also be included in future releases of the TouchTools CD-ROM.
The licensing of the Windows CE driver is somewhat different than for other Elo drivers, so read this section carefully. The Windows CE Driver is delivered to the customer in a zipped developer kit with a developer license agreement (DLA). The DLA lets the customer develop on one system and create up to thirty prototype systems for product development and testing purposes. Prior to selling systems, however, the customer needs to obtain an OEM license contract for the CE driver. For OEM licenses, contact Elo Software Product Management. The Windows CE driver is licensed for use only with Elo touch products. Any other use requires a separate license.
