I am running Lookout 6.5 on Windows 7 Professional. I am using a pushbutton to fire a Sequencer whose A output starts a RUN object with a command line of "c:\Windows\system32\osk.exe". The RUN object executes, but I get a window that says "Could not start On-Screen Keyboard". The window only has "OK" as an option - click on OK and the window disappears. I have tried the same RUN object with notepad.exe and wordpad.exe, and these work fine.
Anyone see what I'm missing?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I'm able to use the Run object to launch the osk on windows 7.
What if you run the command in window's Run?
Thanks for your reponse, Ryan.
I have now found a solution - but first a few puzzlers. I can successfully use the Lookout RUN object to start other executables in the Windows\system32 folder - but not the osk. I can start the osk by other means (shorcut, double-click on the .exe, starting from a bat file).
I copied the osk.exe to another folder on the hard drive and can now start it with the Lookout RUN object. I'm not sure why this works differently - but it does. Thanks.
