Multiple Keyboards connected - only one in controls


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have 3 usb (gaming) keyboards connected.

 

1.) standard keyboard

2.) numeric keypad

3.) X7 G100

 

I expected them to get enumerated as three individual devices in DCSWord control options. Unfortionately my Win7 seems to map the three input devices to one keyboard, thus only "Keyboard" is enlisted in the control options. :cry:

 

Any idea how I could Win7 and/or DCS to recognise three individual keyboard devices?

I'm well rusty on this having had this issue about 2 years ago....

 

I think XPadder might be able to do this if differentiation, if you can work through that abstraction?

In general the answer is no. External programs might help but the bottom liine is that Windows does not see them as separate devices and never will. It would be the same as plugging in three mice and expecting them to be seen as three distict devices. It is not going to happen.

AFAIK XPAdder does not recognise the additional keyboards as additional devices, hence i also not suitable. It would work with a game pad. But I do have multiple keyboards connected.
