About On-Screen Keyboard Portable

Hi, there is an error which is preventing me from launching on screen keyboard on windows 10 pro x64:

I hope someone could find a solution for this error. The onscreen keyboard* seems to depend on some files in system32 folder or on some registery enteries to work.

It would be much better to make your app work by itslef without them. Thanks for taking my suggestion into consideration.

osk.exe

It depends on the Windows On-Screen Keyboard being installed as part of Windows, which it is by default. It exists within system32 and is a file called osk.exe. If it is not present or if the system is locked down as to prevent running/accessing files in system32, it will not function.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

I already have osk.exe and

I already have osk.exe and OskSupport.dll and I'd like to know which files, services, registery enteries the program uses to launch.

App Itself

The app itself uses HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Osk to store settings. Our launcher moves those in and out to make the experience portable as you move PCs. As for anything else that C:\Windows\system32\osk.exe needs, that's not our domain, as it's a Windows built-in app. If it doesn't work, you'll need to troubleshoot that at the OS level as it works by default on Windows 7, 8, and 10.
