I don't see something called Pen and Touch.
I did try the file (sp37969.exe at the end of the link you provided but that did not work. The readme file says it covered up to Vista.
I tried sw601382 touch driver.exe from http://www.elotouch.com/Support/Downloads/dnld.asp. That sorta works. I am used to if the cursor is an arrow, touching the screen moves the arrow to the location touched. In this case the arrow disappears. (The touch action does occur.)

The question was not broad enough. I am looking for the Elotouch driver so that I have not only the calibrations but also the settings such as sound. In Windows XP touching the screen also generated sound.

Checked an existing XP computer with same touchscreen. Noted the driver 5/30/2007 2.50.0.0 is same as on windows 7.
Checked the Elotouch and found version 4.6.3. Therefore the driver version needed should have a higher version. The Elotouch version install was a lower number. Uninstalled.

When back to HP web site, download and installed the vista version. This gave me elotouch version 5.1.1 and that does work.
