There are some windows systems that come with an error message (Missing MSSTDFMT.DLL) when trying to open the virtual keyboard, it seemed that it is a issue on some 64bit versions and on some windows7 here is a solution:


1:  Down load zip file (msstdfmt.zip)           (msstdfmt.zip)

2:  Unzip and Copy this file msstdfmt.dll from the zip file and insert it in this folder/s:

     C:\windows\system32   and if there is one to this    C:\windows\SysWOW64

3:  Open the start menu and type cmd into the search box Hold Ctrl + Shift and press Enter

     (This runs the Command Prompt in Administrator mode)

4:  Command Prompt it looks like this:    c:\windows\system32>

     Now type: regsvr32 msstdfmt.dll and press enter

     so it looks like this before you press enter:  

     c:\windows\system32> regsvr32 msstdfmt.dll


Then you should be able to open the Virtual Keyboard.
