Question about Micro Innovations MCNKB730X Micro Web Access Keyboard
I've had a couple of these keyboards since 2001 as well. When using it with XP my take is this:
1) some of the extra key functionality is done within the keyboard and the rest is done through the driver.
2) The driver is ancient and even precedes XP.
3) XP interprets some of the top row buttons rather than passing them to the driver (thus they will never be seen by the driver). This was not the case with Windows 2000.
Your choice now is to use either :
1) use it without the driver (the scroll wheel will not work but all of the buttons on the left will work). This is what I do.
2) install the driver and the scroll wheel will work, some of the buttons on top will be passed to the driver and you can make them launch a few apps. The other top buttons will launch specific MS apps regardless of what you configure it to do. The left forward and backwards buttons will only work with Internet Explorer - not Firefox, etc.
Take your pick. I have looked all over the world for an updated driver and I don't think there is one. I even looked at the patent documentation to see if I could figure out how to write my own.
Use the control panel to uninstall the driver. If you want to reinstall the driver it does NOT remember settings from last time. It just works so poorly that you might think that something like that is happening. If you still think that is the case use regedit and search for relevant entries and delete them.
