    Hi ,

    my MFC application calls the internal onscreen keyboard osk for touchscreen
    purpose (2000, XP). But now in Vista the osk takes about 15-20 sec to pop up.
    With this behaviour I can NOT use it further on. Why is the osk so so slowly
    in Vista? Does anybody know a solution for this problem? Thanks for any hint.

    hello.. this is strange..

    I have not had any problems with OSK on vista...

    Someone reported a very slow launch of notepad after some updates....he
    fixed it by runing windows update

    another person said the same thing about calculator plus.. for me that
    worked fine too, for him it was a no-go

    perhaps this is connected?

    I am posting here the info from those posts below so you can see:

    about notepad:

    Thanks for the suggestion. Taking your advice, I ran Windows Update. And
    suddenly Notepad launches briskly again. Why this should fix the problem is
    a mystery to me. Obviously Windows Vista has some very odd plumbing.


    about calculator plus

    Hi Michael,

    Notepad is running just fine here, but I have the same problem with another
    MS program : Calculator+
    A Windows update or Microsoft update does not help in my case though.
