Virtual Keyboard under Windows

  • Hi,

    I am looking for a virtual keyboard that can be used with a Qt application running on Windows, on a touchscreen device. I found the "Qt Virtual Keyboard" module that is supposed to be included in the Enterprise version, so I tried to test it. (listed here:

    However, I was not able install and use the module. When running an application that references it, the error message that I have is: "module "QtQuick.Enterprise.VirtualKeyboard" is not installed".

    So my questions are:

    1. Is the "Qt Virtual Keyboard" module available on Windows or is it limited to another OS?
    2. Is there any other virtual keyboard solution that I could use?

    Thank you.


  • What Windows you use ?

    I use Windows 8.1 and there is a keyboard in it.
    You can find it here :

    @"C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\ink\TabTip.exe"@

  • I use Windows 7 Embedded Standard.

    The problem is that I need to be able to:

    • position the keyboard at a given position on the screen
    • ideally change its look (that is why a QML solution would come handy)
    • be able to switch from one layout to another (English/Cyrillic/...)
