    Thumbs up OSK Solution for Logging into XP when you do not have a keyboard connected.

    When I remote Desktop into the computer with the in-wall touchscreen, I had no way to log back in locally without a keyboard connected, and usually just had to reboot the system. I have had this happen in the car as well at times.

    I just ran across this great little program after extensive Googling. It's called OSKGina from Siemens.

    This little program will present an OSK at the windows login screen, either on a cold boot (If you do not have the login disabled), or after closing a remote desktop connection to the machine.

    Install it, reboot and you are done. HERE is the link to the program.

    Yea, I just found that a lot easier and a lot cheaper than installing a completely new OS
