I need an onscreen keyboard that is capable of launching at the logon screen with the ability to press ctrl alt del on XP SP2 non tablet.

I have read on previous posts that is possible to use the one from tablet edition of xp.  It was not however made clear on how that was accomplished.  I have spent the past several days testing a dozen OSK's and have had no success. I have tried

Softboy
My-t-soft
touch-it
and on and on.

i am not opposed to paying under $100.00 for one but it would be great if i could find a way to use the one from tablet.

Do you use a CTRL+Alt+Delete secuire login by policy, and can that be altered if so?

I had did similar research for this once, but couldnt get past the secure login....it would only launch at the login prompt...ill find my notes..

And did you try using the built in OSK to start with Windows?
