Windows 7: Invisible keys in Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator 1.4 user interface

25 Oct 2011   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 32 bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
Invisible keys in Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator 1.4 user interface

I have installed the Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator 1.4 (a 32 bit program) in a HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook with a 64 bit operating system and an Intel Core2 Duo CPU P8700 @ 2.53GHz processor, and it works fine, showing all the keys in my keyboard; I was able to create a custom layout that worked without a hitch. However, when I tried the same procedure on the computer described in my SevenForums profile, the program showed on screen only the external frame; it does not show any key, thus the program is useless to create a custom layout. So far as I can understand, it seems a rendering error, but I am humble user, I have tried downloading and installing recommended Microsoft updates and the software suggested by the MKLC 1.4 page, but to no avail.

I would greatly appreciate any suggestion.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

I'm having the same issue. I used the MS Keyboard Layout Creator on Windows Vista without a problem. Now I have a new computer running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, and the keyboard on the creator does not appear, making the program useless.

I've looked on the Internet for solutions, but it seems no one with this problem has gotten an answer.
