Differences between Windows XP SP2 Professional and Windows XP Tab

    What additional applications or features are installed with the Windows XP
    Tablet PC version that are not contained within Windows XP SP2 itself?
    And how does one detect these additional features?
    I am asking these questions from the perspective of being able to use a
    script to determine if the current machine is a tablet PC or not.

    The Tablet PC Edition superset runs on top of Windows XP Pro, Arun. The
    detection is done, with the appropriate PID, visa versa - if the appropriate
    hardware is available, the bits install. You may want to check with the
    microsoft.public.windows.tabletpc.developer newsgroup where the programmers
    hang out. They may be able to assist you with the script.

    You could look for a registry entry, in
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run for "tablet -s"
    But thats simple to spoof.
