On-screen keyboard problem

I think you might have your Hotkeys on, try disabling them

Hotkeys will only work while the SmartNAV software is running. Keyboard keys assigned to Hotkeys will not perform their normal keyboard function while they are being used as Hotkeys. For example, if the CAPS LOCK keyboard key is assigned to Left Click, it will only perform Left Clicks while the SmartNAV software is running. It will resume performing the normal CAPS LOCK function when the SmartNAV software is closed, or if the Hotkey is re-assigned or disabled.
