As far as I'm aware, windows turns touch screen presses into mouse clicks,
there for it should be a normal apps with buttons easy enough to hit with
your finger.

You should be using Windows Presentation Foundation for a Windows
application or Silverlight for a Web application depending how you plan to
get the user interface to the display and where the application itself is
going to run. HP is using Tablet PC OS for their latest release of their
TouchSmart product.

Hi:

first you have to have a touch screen device (monitor,phone)
the interface driver from the device will recognize the touch on a control
as a click,
there are ways to work all mouse clicks just touching the device.

like you touch twice a button , your software will work as a double click.

so if you have an application already , just connect your device with the
correct driver and the mouse cliks are done, another thing is the typing ,
are you going to use a kb in your app, other wise you have to show a on
screen kb (take a look at ephone) windows have that (a kb to work with the
mouse, a little small to my taste).

have to say this... have two touch screens for sale if you want to try your
apps)
