|You no longer have to be an "Administrator" to install or run Click-N-Type. However, you need to have "Administrator" Privileges to install Click-N-Type and its Add-ons. If your account is a "Standard User", Vista will prompt you for an Administrator/Password to use while installing. If your account is already an "Administrator", you will simply be prompted to "Allow" the installation to continue.|
|We want to offer special thanks to Jim Brewer at Alpha Computer Systems in Albemarle NC 704-983-8702, for allowing us to use Vista and Windows 7 systems for an extended length of time free of charge. Without his help, we could not have developed Vista or Windows 7 compatible versions of our software.|
Installing the Basic Click-N-Type keyboard:
Currently Click-N-Type is unable to send keys to programs that have been started by the User Account Control. There are several work-arounds for this problem. You may use any of them:
If Windows 7 fails to schedule Click-N-Type quickly enough it causes Click-N-Type to swap focus back an forth with every click of a key, until you minimize or restart.
There is a Vista bug that sometimes doesn't allow Click-N-Type to set itself as "Always On-Top" when started at Logon. Revision  contains a workaround for this, but it is still possible. If Click-N-Type fails to stay On Top, on a Vista system:
Windows Vista and later have an accessibility option called "Activate a window by hovering over it with the mouse". This feature is incompatible with Click-N-Type because the keyboard should not take focus while the user is typing. Please do not use this Windows option, as it may cause unexpected consequences.
† You actually can run Click-N-Type at Login, with full privileges if you're an Administrator, using the Windows 7 Task Scheduler. See here for specific instructions. See here, here and here for the general methods we've used as references.
