Windows 8 RTM and Sony Touchscreen

I just purchased a Sony VPCL224FX and did an in-place upgrade from the pre-installed Win 7 64bit to Win 8 RTM.  Everything except for Bluetooth and Touchscreen appears to be working fine.  Is anyone aware of any options for the Touchscreen driver.  It appears they use the Next Window Low Rider touchscreen driver and everywhere only shows the Win 7 version.  I tried to reinstall it and it is not working at all..any direction would be appreciated..

Solved it..wiped the hard drive completely and then reinstalled Windows 8 and then reinstalled the Sony Touchscreen driver and it is working perfectly..It really looks great on the 24" screen.
