Can not type anything in dosbox

Postby riverrat » 2018-3-08 @ 22:51

I have two computers hooked up to 1 mouse, 1 keyboard, and 1 moniter. 1 running Windows 7 pro with 64 bit 8 gb. Ram , Intel i5 ,the other running xp. I can type into dosbox on the xp computer, not on the windows 7. I read all the help I could find and tried them all. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

Search on line for instructions for displaying hidden devices in the Windows Device Manager. In the Device Manager, with hidden devices displayed, delete any "ghost" keyboard drivers that may be present.

Alt-enter to go fullscreen, or Ctrl+F10 to capture the mouse. Maybe that will help.
