Downloaded the Win8 64 bit driver (version 16.2.11.7) for the Synaptics touchpad. I'm wondering if anyone else has run into problems with this particular driver? Here's whats up, and what I found:

The zip file contains two files: 1. install.bat and 2. a second zip file that (looking at the filename) appears to be for XP, Vista, and Windows 7. This second zip file also contains an install batch file, the setup executable and other files.

After extracting the zip file, running the install.batch file that was located at the root of the zip file fails because it's looking for a setup.exe file located in the same location as the install.bat file... which does not exist. So I ended up extracting the second zip file mentioned above and running the install.bat file there. That works, because it does locate the setup.exe file there.

Anyways, just a heads up on the structure of this zip file for this particular driver. There is a release text document located in the second zip file, but it makes no mention of Windows 8. Why there is an install.bat located in the root of the zip file... I have no idea.
