Since Microsoft fogot a way to open easyly the "touchscreenkeyboard" when in fullscreen programms in Windows 8, I wanted a gesture to run the "onscreenkeyboard" (because I don't know a way to call the "touchscreenkeyboard" with commands).

The path to the exe is "c:\windows\system32\osk.exe" so the scrip would be:
acRunProgram("c:\\windows\\system32\\osk.exe","",0,1)

For some reason this doesn't work.

My workaround was to simply create a shortcut to osk.exe and open this shortcut:
acShellExecute("open","c:\\windows\\system32\\osk.lnk","","",1)


For example autohotkey doesn't has this problem.

It can do just about everything, I don't know why, but Microsoft stopped just short.

Oh thanks you are right. I thought because I'm using the signed version and S+ can interact with admin windows, that there would be no such problem.

OSK.exe cannot be started by an application which is not running with administrative privileges. If you run S+ with administrative privileges, the acRunProgram("c:\\windows\\system32\\osk.exe","",0,1) action will work fine.
