View Full Version : Loading keyboard layout with keyb.com results in loop

January 25th, 2014, 02:29 PM
Hi there,
I've a really strange problem here on my Nixdorf PC02 (Clone of Panasonic Sr. Partner, MS-DOS 6.22 installed). When I load a keyboard layout (no matter which language) with keyb.com (e.g. keyb gr,,C:\dos\keyboard.sys) the system seems to loop. After typing a few characters, it starts to repeat my last characters and is somehow looping forever. The only way to get out is to do a reset.

The only drivers which I can use, are the keyboard layout drivers from MS/PC-DOS up to 2.11 aka keybXX.com. (XX = language). Those work fine and without any problems. Starting with DOS 3.0 and higher, there are no keybXX.com, but keyb.com combined. And those are causing my described problem. I've tried keyb.com from DOS 3.3, 4.01, 5.0 and 6.22. No one works correctly. Only 2.10/2.11.

Can anybody tell me, why only the old keybXX.com works correctly.
