This is a weird one...

Recommended Posts

Something new cropped up in my P3Dv4 system.

My keyboard is inoperative when I get into an aircraft after starting up the sim.  My Saitek and all the buttons work, but not the keyboard keys.

I discovered that if I do a CTL-ALT-DEL, start the Task Manager, and then close it the keyboard starts working.

Ever heard of this?  Any ideas?

Noel, I have suffered that issue once, and the only cure I found at the time was to delete  Standard.xml and let P3D rebuild a new one. Found in %APPDATA% Roaming/LM/P3D control folder. It means losing your settings though.

Thanks Wilbury.  I'll give that a try.

Well, that didn't work either Wilbury.  Guess I'll have to keep searching.

It sure is. Maybe try a different USB port ?

Travelling_Wilbury , you will never lose your settings if you export them... in any bad event you can import them and you are done...

Menu>options>controls ..at the bottom export or import.. the save file goes to C:\Users\YOUR_ID\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Files

Thanks for that tip Jorge.

Problem fixed!  If I live to be 150 years old (I'm 83 now) I will never figure out how all this stuff works.

Yesterday a friend sent me the Object Flow 2 Open Beta to install so I could begin installing all the Orbx airport sceneries for the full FAT regions.

After I installed it my problem was gone.  My keyboard works now as soon as I bring up P3Dv4,

Gi figure.  The parallel universe of Orbx works in mysterious ways.
