My application is built in Visual C++ 6.0. Think of it like a video game in the way the entire UI is rendered graphically at ~45fps and looks nothing like windows.
Lately I am interested in adding touch and gestures support which I understand should be available in Windows 7 if an appropriate monitor is used. (simple touch, swipe and hopefully pinch). The interface is already designed in a way that visually it would make sense.
Will I have to upgrade to a more recent version of Visual Studio and port the project over before being able to use some of these capabilities? Are there special development libraries I'll need? My preference is to maintain the old visual studio on a new windows 7 box just to keep things simple since it's not broken, unless there's no choice to move forward.
Thanks for any insight!
