Attach tab for mouse driver?

Actually it's the Alps touchpad utility in a Dell laptop, but the new
tcmd beta version thinks it can be attached as a tab. It attaches as a
plain black screen, which AFAIK does no harm other than looking foolish.

The current licensed version does not see it as attachable.

TCC 11.00.21 Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

Take Command v11 allows you to attach GUI apps to tab windows. However, the
app has to meet some basic criteria -- it has to be resizable, and it has to
only have one main window. I don't have a Dell laptop or the Alps touchpad
utility, but I suspect it doesn't meet those criteria.

The workaround is straightforward -- don't put GUI apps into tab windows if
they won't work there! :-)
