Intermec Norand 6642 On Screen Keyboard Doesn't Quite Work with Remote Desktop Connection
As readers of this site knows that I recently gleamed an Intermec Norand 6642 pen tablet computer off eBay. I've been wanting a pen tablet because it helps me read, write, and browse while sitting in my living room, where I am most comfortable with my creative process. So far this Windows 98 gem has worked beautifully. With wireless network and Remote Desktop Connection working, there's practically nothing I can't do with it. Except . . .
The on screen keyboard doesn't quite work with Remote Desktop Connection. The lower case alphabet keys work and the number pad works. But none of the other keys work. That is really a hinder because without a physical keyboard, all technical key operations must go through this virtual keyboard. Handwriting recognition works wonders on this pen tablet and works great with Remote Desktop Connection. But handwriting recognition is only excellent for writing, not for technical operations.
At this point, I can't figure out why the on screen keyboard doesn't fully work and I can't figure out how to get it to fully work. If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear it.
can you provide some shots of the Norand and how the use is?
Here is a photo of the Norand remoting to Microsoft Windows XP Media Center. The on screen keyboard shown can be resized.
I figured it out. Rather than using the On-Screen keyboard that came with Windows 98, I used the Windows XP version that is on the remote computer. It worked beautifally.
Are you need any drivers to instal Windows XP on your Intermec Norand 6642?
Read this thread carefully . . . I did not install Windows XP on the Intermec Norand 6642. It's accessing another Windows XP computer using Windows Remote Desktop Connection. So no driver is needed for the Intermec Norand 6642.
If your remote computer has Windows XP Tablet PC edition installed, an even better solution is to use VNC. See the "Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition Crippled Through Remote Desktop" TrackBack below.
