    It is possible to get the WPD from lenovo working on a RB, tested with Late 2016 and 2017 models, in case anyone is interested.
    Download and unpack the Lenovo Driver and Synaptics Driver 19.2.11.0, as well as an external mouse.
    https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/n1mgx14w.zip
    http://drivers.razersupport.com//index.php?_m=downloads&_a=downloadfile&downloaditemid=2402

    Step 1: Uninstall from "Apps and Features" menu The Synaptics Pointing Device Driver (version 19.2 or 19.4). Restart.
    Step 2: Plug in external mouse for this part.
    In Device Manager, select HID-compliant mouse, Update, Browse my computer, let me pick from a list, have disk, browse, and find the lenovo driver. Restart.
    Step 3: Device Manager, select Synaptics Pointing Device, Update, Browse my computer, let me pick from a list, have disk, browse, and find the Synaptics 19.2.11.0 driver.
    Restart.
    Now this is where the precision driver is working, but is conflicting with the synaptics software settings. The thing is the synaptics software was not installed completely.
    Under Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, Mouse, touchpad settings, the software will look like this, with a warning to uninstall, select no, if you want to see for yourself. If not skip this.

    Step 4: To fix the synaptics software, go to device manager, select Synaptics HID touchpad under "mice and other pointing devices", Update, browse my computer, let me pick from a list, have disk, browse, and find the Synaptics 19.2.11.0 driver again.
    Step 5: Now head to control panel, mouse, touchpad settings, unselect show tray icon, click settings, and now all the options will show....unselect all the options in the menus, leaving the ones under general for last. Restart.
    Step 5: Go to windows touchpad settings, hopefully the precison touch pad is still active, and go ahead and set your configuration and check if it is working correctly.

    EDIT: another option to end the conflict between the synaptics software settings and the windows touchpad settings, is to disable SynTPenh Caller Service in Services.
    Also the touchpad doesn´t work when using the keyboard, so for those that want to game using the pad, revert back to the original driver.

    It worked for me, althought I gotta say I miss the acc/deceleration modulation granted by Synaptics.

    True, although the synaptics settings are still available, I think those settings won´t work, the precision driver seems to override them. The WPD is mostly for those that want the extra configurations for gestures, i.e backward/forward navigation, etc.

    What I loved is the ability to turn off the touchpad if a mouse is plugged in, much love for it, so wow :D

    Worked nicely for me too. :vbthumbsup:

    I love the "auto disable when external moue is connected" feature too.
    Multifinger gestures are just a gimmick in my opinion.

    True, but I like the back and forward navigation though, more useful for me than switching apps.

    Hey Makyura, I've followed you from a post about the RazerBlade 2015 Air Fan Control success.
    Unfortunately, I don't have the config file in order to operate it with the program.
    I was wondering if you could upload it and share it with me, I'm having temperature issues of over 95 degrees and my fans are doing nothing.
    Please get back to me if you can.
