I'm trying to use call the On screen keyboard from VB.NET code.  I've tried the methods show below.  I get "Unable to start on screen keyboard".   Anyone know why?  This is windows 7.   Also, if I copy the OSK. EXE to a Windows 10 machine, should it work?  

Shell("C:\Windows\System32\OSK.EXE")

Process.Start("C:\Windows\System32\OSK.EXE")

Note that the source code is incompatible with Visual Studio 2010. So, you will have to create your own project with a text box, 2 buttons and using code from Form1.vb. Easy to use.
