just replaced my laptop and now i have an issue when i use the visual keyboard;

when i try to move the keyboard on the screen, the cursor freezes and i have to go to my laptop and use the mouse to "free-up" the cursor. So the keyboard is useless....:(

everything was fine with the old laptop (vista).

Hi,

The problem that you have may be due to the UAC control of Windows 7 that limits the software such as Smoothboard controlling certain parts of the operating system.

You may use the Tablet PC Input Panel that can be found in Start Menu->Programs->Tablet PC and switch to the keyboard.

Alternatively, you may launch the Smoothboard software as an Administrator.

You may refer to the solutions here:

Works like a charm. Setting up administrator rights fixed everything.... :D

Great. :)

You may want to try the Tablet PC Input Panel too as it allows you to directly write and recognize your handwriting.
