Enabling a Keyboard

Windows Mobile 6.5

To enable all of the keyboard–related features, the driver needs to create the following registry entry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shell\HasKeyboard: {0=false,1=true}

1 indicates the device has a hardware keyboard installed. For modular keyboards, the driver is responsible for resetting this registry to zero anytime it is unplugged or disabled.
