View Full Version : Issue:
When attempting to send recognized text
02-28-2003, 03:55 AM
When attempting to send recognized text across a Remote Desktop connection using the Writing Pad, Write Anywhere, or Speech dictation feature of the Tablet PC Input Panel, no text is sent. However, when using the Input Panel's onscreen keyboard, text is sent as expected.
The problem is with the W2K terminal services - MSFT has a hot fix that updates the server. As I understand they are authoring a KB article. I also understand the fix may be available through MSFT premier support.

I saw that. The down side is that it seems to imply that you have to install the fix on the server itself, which may be quite an undertaking for a large company. I would have preferred a client-side fix.
Since they mention W2K Terminal Services - what about remoting into a Win XP desktop, does that work correctly?

I was able to use RDP on our network to control my desktop unit. On my desktop unit I use a citrix client based application and I was able to control it via the tablet. I also understand that the problem does not occur under the .NET (beta) terminal services. Hope that answers your question.

It's strange .. all of the articles I've read say that this is a Win2k issue, but I have one XP system that works fine and another that exhibits the problem.

As an update:
The Terminal Services issue (where the handwriting recognition does not work) is documented at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb%3Ben-us%3B814066
The Citrix Metafram client has a similar/related issue. The fix above I believe is required - it should be addressed in FR3 (feature release 3) which is due out by the end of 2nd quarter. Still unclear whether both or just the Citrix fix will be required.

I use VNC from my tablet to control the server. Not as powerful but free and very small.
