Win8 on an iPad.

HI Fellas,

I was finally able to get Win8 working on View and access it via the iPad client.  It seems to work well and it even uses my Zagg bluetooth keyboard.  However Windows and the View client still act as if I'm using a mouse.  This means I cant just drag my finger across the screen to scroll through the windows tiles.  I have to touch and drag the mouse pointer across the scroll bar at the bottom of the screen.  Does anyone have any thoughts on how to get windows or the view client to treat this like a touch device instead of having a mouse?

An interesting article on emulating touch for Win8 VDI.

This article doesn't really help with the issue of touch from the Ipad. Hopefully when VMWare adds support for Windows 8, they will add something in for the Ipoad and the Android devices as well.
