After a windows update, AIR reports a touch event as a pen event:

[TouchEvent type="touchEnd" ... touchIntent="pen" isTouchPointCanceled=true]

I am on a machine with a touch screen only without stylus, tough according to Adobe docs:

If a touch event is generated by a finger or other non-stylus input method, or a stylus for which high-frequency motion tracking is not supported, this property reports the value: TouchEventIntent.UNKNOWN.

Also, event gets canceled:  isTouchPointCanceled=true

Reports that this touch input sequence was canceled by the operating system.

Touch events can be canceled for a variety of reasons, such as when a palm-generated touch is rejected because a pen stylus is in use. isTouchPointCanceled can only be true in a touchEnd event.
