Lab Remote Installation › Lab Remote Installation   2017-01-18 05:54:28.730

I am trying to install the desktop application and a keyboard on multiple computers that have multiple users from a remote computer over a network. I have successfully installed the application but the keyboard seems to require administration privileges to install. The users do not have that privilege. Is there a workaround to get this to work?

In terms of working around the issue in your keyboard, you will need to create rules that disambiguate desktop and web builds:, for example:
:
$keymanonly: + [LCTRL K_W] > 'LCtrl W'
$keymanweb: + [CTRL K_W] > 'Control W'

Until recently, most browsers did not distinguish between left and right ctrl/alt, so there was no way to detect them from Javascript. I haven't researched the current support level for this feature in browsers. You could submit an issue at https://github.com/tavultesoft/keymanweb/issues to request that we add support for these flags in KeymanWeb on those browsers that support l/r ctrl/alt.

Thanks for the feedback. I've noted this in the issue list for the keyboard layout and we'll address it when we get an opportunity

In order to create an installer which bundles Keyman Desktop, you'll need to find the keymandesktop90.msi file. This is included in the Keyman Desktop 9 installer downloadable from http://keyman.com/

Once you have downloaded it, you'll need to run the installer with command line parameter -x, for example:
keymandesktop-9.0.508.0.exe -x c:\temp
Where c:\temp should be replaced with the path you want to extract the installer files to. Once you have run this command, you will find the .msi file in that folder, which you can then select in the Package Editor next to the Compile Installer button.

As a student of ancient Greek, I am using the "Greek, Ancient - Polytonic" layout which is excellent and matches this version http://help.keyman.com/keyboard/greek_polytonic/1.0/greek_polytonic.php. However there is one character which cannot be found using this layout - the letter eta with both a iota subscript plus circumflex .
Since the diaeresis ϊ is available at two locations (1)Shift-Q and (2)colon, I suggest the layout could be edited to include a subscript+circumflex for the eta character by placing U+1FC7 on the (shifted) colon key.
The Android onscreen keyboard, which matches the above link, also needs updating as several active diacritic combinations are not displayed - diaeresis/accent combinations are to be found at the following shifted keys: tilde, Q, W and colon.

Hey,

Good-day!

I have a query with regard to creating an installer for the keyboard layout.

After completing my source and compilation step, I went into Keyboard>Package for Distribution.
1. Saved file
2. Compiled Package successfully
3. For Compile Installer, I get the error: Package.kps: Fatal: The installer could not be built because the MSI file was missing.

Please help!

Thanks and regards,
John

Can you clarify what said access denied? Could you send a screenshot to support@keyman.com? Or at least let me know which keyboard you were trying to download?

I purchased Keyman 8.0 and tried to download a keyboard but it said 'access denied'.

Yes, that's not quite correct. You'd need to include [SHIFT ALT] in each of the entries in the store, e.g.

store(shift_alt_digits) [SHIFT ALT '1'] [SHIFT ALT '2'] c ... etc ...

Or

store(shift_alt_digits) [SHIFT ALT K_1] [SHIFT ALT K_2] c ...

Hello,

My intention is to have a keys combination like [SHIFT ALT] or [CTRL SHIFT] before any plain_digits store to map to different stores of unicodes.

[SHIFT ALT] + any(plain_digits) > index( unicode_plain_digits, 3 )

this gives a 400a error.

Please let me know if I'm making a wrong statement.

Thanks and regards,
John

This is an unfortunate side-effect of the way Windows manages keyboard layouts. I find that restarting the computer usually resolves this. If it doesn't, can you send me a diagnostic report following the steps at http://help.keyman.com/kb/40?

I had keyman setup so that I could switch between my default English UK keyboard, and the keyman Thai keyboard I have installed. Recently a third keyboard appears in the list. The third keyboard is "Thai US". How can I remove this keyboard.

Here is a screenshot of what I see with windows-space http://screencast.com/t/WnxwdpVCr

Yes, if you need an earlier version license, just contact sales@keyman.com with your version 9 license details and we can organise a license for the earlier version for you.

Dear Licensing Team,

We are grateful for the effective software (Keyman Desktop) which is a great help for us getting our job done.
We have found your End User License Agreement (EULA) very informative, but we would like to know Tavultesoft’s stand on downgrade rights. Hence we would like to ask “Is Keyman Desktop 9.0 Pro license allowed to be downgraded to license previous versions?”
We are looking forward to your reply.

Kind regards,
Josiah
