[Interest] On-screen keyboard on Windows desktop

Heh, interesting.

That’s definitely the Qt Virtual Keyboard. I’m not sure where exactly to look (since you said that QT_IM_MODULE is not set), but for some reason it’s being loaded. Like I said though, it doesn’t happen to me, and I tested Designer using the same Qt version as you (I assume you’re using an enterprise version of Qt if the VKB is showing up).

Here's a picture of what I see:


It's only in Qt Designer and Qt Assistant that I see it (but I don't use Creator). It's only since 5.5. It's not in our Qt application.

It's not the Windows assistance on-screen keyboard.

We have at least two machines behaving this way. They are set up for English - Australian.

What's the value of QT_IM_MODULE?
