OSK during OOBE


Well-Known Member
In constructing images for an industrial touch screen PC, I have noticed that the OSK (On Screen Keyboard) shows up during the OOBE (Out of Box Experience) on the English image, and the German Image. I specifically enabled this for the logon screen and was surprised to see it during the OOBE. Windows XP does not do this.

The Multilanguage image behaves differently. Is this because the first question in the Multilanguage OOBE is to select a language? Perhaps it has no clue about what OSK to throw up? If so why does it not put up an OSK once a language has been selected via the touch screen?
