Windows 7: Storage Location of OSK

Windows 10 Pro x64
Storage Location of OSK

Hi everyone

We want to implement the Windows 7 OSK in our software but we do not know, where we can find it.
I do not mean the normal OSK in Windows\System32 folder. I mean the one which appears with a slide from the left. We need the path to call it with a button in our software.

I hope anyone can help us.

Best regards,

The slide out keyboard you are referring to is not the OSK. It is the Tablet PC Input Panel (tabtip.exe)

It can be found in this path C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\ink
