Writing pad and touch keyboard do hnot work for VMware guests on Windows 7 x64 tablet
Posted on 2011-09-18
i am wondering if anyone has noticed this issue on Windows 7 based tablet PCs? the floating Writing Pad and Touch Keyboard of Windows 7 do not work for VMware guests (at least, running Windows). the IME soft keyboard does not work, too. however, using physical keyboard always work.
that means, you can't input any thing while your laptop working in its tablet mode. :((
i called MS technical support and they refused to help as VMware software has been installed on the Windows 7. it is ridiculous.
Tablet: HP EliteBook 2760p
Host OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit Edition
VM Engine: VMware Workstation 7.1.4
Guest OS: Windows XP/2003
any thoughts and suggestions?
