writing pad, character pad ... not active

    The writing pad and the character pad are not active in several languages
    even after installing Recognizer Pack. How can I make active and use them?

    Here are details:
    - I recently bought Toshiba M205-S810, running with Windows XP Tablet PC
    Edition 2002. (OS is English)
    - I added Japanese and Japanese Input Method Editor (IME). I had no problem
    to use Japanese in normal condition. (I chose Japanese as Default input
    language and chose the US as Standards and formats and Location.)
    - I upgraded the OS to Windows XP Tablet PC Ed. 2005.
    - I installed Recognizer Pack, choosing Japanese, Korean, Chinese
    - I installed three languages, Korean and Chinese (Taiwan/PRC), at Regional
    and Language Options in Control Panel.
    - Now, the menu of Input Panel shows five languages: English (United
    States), Chinese (Taiwan), Japanese, Korean, Chinese (PRC).
    - English and two Chinese does not have problem. All three buttons (Writing
    Pad/Character Pad/On-Screen Keyboard) are active at Input Panel.
    - However, in Japanese and Korean, two buttons (Writing Pad and Character
    Pad) are not active so that I cannot use them. Only the On-Screen Keyboard
    button is active.
    - Just FYI, I do not check "Turn off advanced text service" in in Control
    Panel/Regional and Language Settings/Languages tab/Details button/Advanced
    tab under System Configuration.

  2. Sam,

    I have basically the same configuration as you do , however, I don't have
    Japanese. Korean and Chinese are installed though, and the Korean writing
    and character pad are "greyed out", i.e. not working. Chinese is okay.

    I haven't done a MUIRP re-install, but it may be my next course of action.

    I solved by uninstalling all Asian setting and reinstalling:

    - uninstall Recognizer Pack completely
    - Control Panel - Regional and Language Options
    - Languages
    - uncheck "East Asian Language"
    - Languages - Details
    - change default input language to US English
    - delete all installed services (keyboards) other than US English
    (you might be required to restart to delete some of them)

    - restart computer
    - (you might have to delete some above)

    - Install Recognizer Pack ALL LANGUAGES instead of selecting some languages.
    - Control Panel - Regional and Language Options
    - Language
    - check "East Asian Language"
    - Language - Details
    - change default input language to US English
    - Restart computer to apply
    - Control Panel - Regional and Language Options - Language - Detail
    - add the keyboard which you want to install
    - Restart computer to apply

    - change your default language and non-unicode language if you need

    That's it.

    You need to choose language of Writing Pad/Character Pad when you want to
    use the recognition function.

    I do not know the minimal required setting. But I could achieve to activate
    the function via procedures above for your information.

  4. Sam,

    I may give it a go. I definitely miss the character pad in Korean. :(
