Where can I find Visual Basic 2015 (or greater) code for a virtual/on-screen keyboard?  I want something that is fairly robust.

what's wrong with the way you are currently using? If you play with the demo of the article I linked you to, are you able to reproduce your behavior?

Starting the process was easy.  Killing the process never worked.  So I gave up and decided to create my own control.

One more question.  Why is tabtip.exe being used instead of osk.exe?  Are they different?  If so,  in what way?

I found a file
C:\Windows\System32\osk.exe

I don't know how to launch it from Visual Basic.  Any ideas?

Since this is getting away from my original question I have decided to create the control myself.
