Have you tried right clicking it and choose run as a administrator.

It's not a feature that's been left out of W7 Home Basic is it? There seems to be some confusion out there - but plenty of coverage if you Google the problem.

Check that Tablet PC Components box is ticked, Control panel-> Programs and Features-> Turn Windows Features ON or OFF-> and scroll down a bit.
