    Issues with MS keyboard and intellitype pro
    I just picked up an MS ergo keyboard 4000. I know, I shouldn't get MS :-) Problem is, its what I use at work and it helps my wrists due to the shape and layout.

    Anyway, it works, but cant get all the specialty keys to work. I installed Intellitype pro 5.3 and it came up with an error when i tryed to access the setup in the system preferances. it says: "Preferences Error: you cannot open ms keyboard preferences pane on this computer....".

    I then updated to 5.4 from the web and same thing.

    Any ideas? what should I try?

    Thanks!

    Try using USBOverdriveX instead. That's what Microsoft license anyway, they just rebrand it.

    ??? Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't have keyboard settings in my usboverdrive.

    I am using it just fine to control my logitec mx1000 mouse, but it doesnt see the keyboard

    Any idea what i'm doing wrong?

    Ahh, sorry my bad!

    I must have mixed that up... That tip related to the mice, not the keyboards...


    Sorry, not too sure!

    Maybe there's a USBOverdriveX for keyboards somewhere.. have you checked versiontracker.com?
