Osk.exe: What It Is, How to Get It, and How to Use It

Accessibility On-Screen Keyboard files such as osk.exe utilize the EXE file extension. This file is considered a Win64 EXE (Executable application) file, and was first created by Microsoft for the Microsoft Windows Operating System software package.

Runtime errors are Microsoft Office Access 2010 errors that occur during "runtime". Runtime is pretty self-explanatory; it means that these EXE errors are triggered when osk.exe is attempted to be loaded either when Microsoft Office Access 2010 is starting up, or in some cases already running. Runtime errors are the most common form of EXE error you will encounter using Microsoft Office Access 2010.

In most cases, osk.exe runtime errors occurring while the program is running will result in the program terminating abnormally. Most of these osk.exe error messages mean that Microsoft Office Access 2010 was either unable to locate this file on startup, or the file is corrupt, resulting in a prematurely-aborted startup process. Generally, Microsoft Office Access 2010 will be unable to start without resolving these errors.

Finding the source of the osk.exe error is key to properly resolving these errors. Although most of these EXE errors affecting osk.exe will happen during startup, occasionally you will encounter a runtime error while using Microsoft Windows Operating System. This can occur due to poor programming on behalf of Microsoft Corporation, conflicts with other software or 3rd-party plug-ins, or caused by damaged and outdated hardware. Also, these types of osk.exe errors can occur if it has been accidentally moved, deleted, or corrupted by a malware infection. Thus, it's critical to make sure your anti-virus is kept up-to-date and scanning regularly.

When the first two steps haven't solved your issue, it might be a good idea to run Windows Update. Many osk.exe error messages that are encountered can be contributed to an outdated Windows Operating System. To run Windows Update, please follow these easy steps:

If none of the previous three troubleshooting steps have resolved your issue, you can try a more aggressive approach (Note: Not recommended for amateur PC users) by downloading and replacing your appropriate osk.exe file version. We maintain a comprehensive database of 100% malware-free osk.exe files for every applicable version of Microsoft Office Access 2010. Please follow the steps below to download and properly replace you file:

GEEK TIP : We must emphasize that reinstalling Windows will be a very time-consuming and advanced task to resolve osk.exe problems. To avoid data loss, you must be sure that you have backed-up all of your important documents, pictures, software installers, and other personal data before beginning the process. If you are not currently backing up your data, you need to do so immediately.

CAUTION : We strongly advise against downloading and copying osk.exe to your appropriate Windows system directory. Microsoft typically does not release Microsoft Office Access 2010 EXE files for download because they are bundled together inside of a software installer. The installer's task is to ensure that all correct verifications have been made before installing and placing osk.exe and all other EXE files for Microsoft Office Access 2010. An incorrectly installed EXE file may create system instability and could cause your program or operating system to stop functioning altogether. Proceed with caution.

"Simon.T, not all versions of windows have Microsoft's osk.exe.this is for them."sounds logical!"also, osk.exe is not portable (I think)"I'm using it only if I need to, since most of the PCs has WinXP and most ofmy portable applications are working only on Win32 and can't be run on wine!Anyway, Thank you *name* for your reply!

EXE issues related osk.exe can be attributed in most cases to executable files that are corrupt, missing, or infected, and often encountered during the Reinstallation CD Microsoft Windows XP Professional Including Service Pack 1a software launch phase. If your EXE file is suffering from one of those troubles, replacing it with a fresh file should resolve the issue. Furthermore, keeping your registry clean and optimized can prevent invalid file path (like osk.exe) and file extension references, so we recommend running a registry scan cleanup regularly.

These types of errors will normally stop occuring if the correct osk.exe file version is placed in the right location, but you should double-check that is the case. Re-open and test Reinstallation CD Microsoft Windows XP Professional Including Service Pack 1a to see if the issue has been successfully solved.

Good morning I was trying to start the Virtual Keyboard of Windows from my script, but everytime I do the Shell from the script, a MsgBox appears to communicate that it's unable to start the virtual keyboard.I run AutoIt on Windows 10 64 bit, and If I double click on "osk.exe", located in C:\Windows\System32, it runs normally... If I try to launch it from my application ( or double click / launch from C:\Windows\SysWOW64 ), it tells me what I wrote above.This is the code I use to launch the Virtual Keyboard ( First, I see if the user has clicked on a checkbox and set the state to checked only, if so, I launch osk.exe ) :

So, If I understood correctly, osk.exe is a 64 bit application, and I'm trying to run it from AutoIt, that, by default, compile the script for 32 bit OS architectures.That makes the mess?Thanks for your explanation again EDIT:

Certain things are going on under the hood that require you to start osk.exe from an MTA thread. The reason seems to be that a call to Wow64DisableWow64FsRedirection only affects the current thread. However, under certain conditions, Process.Start will create the new process from a separate thread, e.g. when UseShellExecute is set to false and also when being called from an STA thread as it seems.

Windows has a feature for 32 bit programs only. To 32 bit programs C:\Windows\SysWOW64\osk.exe is exactly the same file as C:\Windows\System32\osk.exe (but not to 64 bit) and both refer to C:\Windows\SysWOW64\osk.exe.

Surfing the web, you can find a handful of references that point you all vaguely in the same way: you need to run OSK as a service, and it has to be a service that's allowed to "interact with desktop". And the usual suggested way of doing it is through "gpedit.msc" (Group Policies) -> "Computer Configuration" -> "Windows Settings" -> "Scripts", double-click "Startup", "Show Files", create a batch file (say osk.bat) containing just "C:\Windows\System32\osk.exe", back to the "Start Properties" dialog, and finally "Add" the batch file... And then you also have to enable "synchronous" script startup in "Computer Configuration" -> "Administrative Templates" -> "System" -> "Scripts".

If the osk.exe missing error appears on your PC, you can use the methods below. Some are automatic, which means you can start a process to let the system automatically restore the file. Others are manual, meaning you will have to manually download osk.exe and move it to the correct program installation folder. If you are not very experienced with digging through system files and would prefer not to, you can simply go straight to an automatic method.

Outbyte PC Repair allows you to automatically repair EXE errors, without you having to worry about choosing the right file or registering it. The utility will not only download the correct version of osk.exe for free and suggest the right directory to install it to but will also resolve other issues related to the osk.exe file.

Driver updates for the Windows operating system, as well as for network adapters, monitors, printers, etc., can be downloaded individually and installed from the Windows Update Center or by using specialized utilities.

This operation will take a while and it is important to wait until it is complete. When finished, close the command prompt and restart the computer as usual. You should find that the osk.exe missing error is gone.

System Restore is very useful if you want to fix osk.exe error, or almost any other error. Using the "System Restore" function, you can choose to restore Windows to a date when the osk.exe file was not damaged. Restoring Windows to an earlier date cancels changes that were made to system files since that date. Please follow the steps below to roll back Windows using System Restore and get rid of the osk.exe error.

I remembered myself about old popular trick with switching cmd.exe with Utilman.exe (or osk.exe or sethc.exe) to run cmd and change user password. But when I tried to do this (I run the cmd from system repair utilities) I actually couldn't find those files to switch them with cmd.exe. There was no utilman.exe, no osk.exe, no sethc.exe in Windows/system32/ nor other catalogs.
