KMKB0047: Keyman Desktop hangs when showing on screen keyboard when Visual Studio 6.0 script debugger is registered


On a system with Visual Studio 6.0 installed and its script debugger registered, Keyman Desktop can hang when the on screen keyboard is displayed.


In Internet Explorer, Tools/Options/Advanced, select "Disable script debugging (other)" and restart Keyman Desktop.


This appears to be a bug in the Visual Studio 6.0 Program Debug Manager pdm.dll. This problem does not occur with later versions of Visual Studio.

Applies to:

  • Keyman Desktop Light 7.0
  • Keyman Desktop Professional 7.0
