1. How did you find this?

2. Why isn’t listed at Dell’s driver download site?

3. It works perfectly.

I forget how I found it Scott – it was on some obscure message board and I’d completely forgotten which one by the time I’d got around to posting this :/

Any idea where to find the 32-bit version of this? I’ve looked everywhere…

Thanks again.

I searched high and low for a newer version of this driver. After much research, this is the only one that works with my Dell Latitude D830 Windows 7 64 bit Laptop. Thank you for this post and the link!! I now have control to disable the Pointing Stick, and have Touchpad Scrolling capabilities!!
Thanks Again!
Joshua.

Any chance we could get an updated URL? Apparently that points no where now.

Nevermind. I opened the URL in notepad and found the executable name, did a search and found that Dell actually has an FTP one can search from:
http://ftp.dell.com/input/

Just search for R157047

This driver even works for Windows 8.1 Professional.
Tested with an Latitude D830.

Just installed this driver on D630 on windows 10 technical preview. Works as needed! I’m always happy to be able to disable tap-to-click, and the scroll region is nice to have as well.

Just wanted to say that after hours of beating on my old Dell D620 with Win7 64 Ultimate trying to get the right drivers for the ALPS touchpad, this is the only solution that worked. THANKS!

How long does it take for Dell to block this link? Why does Dell block links?
I tried to download the touchpad driver as I need to turn it off. I had a good driver on my Dell Vostro and when it conflicted with my mouse [as they do[ there was a very good program to turn it off. I chose to keep it off and not alternate with mouse giving mouse the default. Now I have one option : lift up the keyboard and unlink the ribbon from the touchpad. Inelegant yes but the Latitude D 630/620 has an easy sub keyboard access.
