Uninstall the enhanced keyboard driver would be a good start.

hallo,

i've done it like kossuth wrote : i have  deleted the SynTp in the UpperFilters string

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM

\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4d36e96b-e325-11cebfc1-

08002be10318}

now its'  working.

I think the conversion tool should make it automatically

Ah OK, I missed that you did a P2V, read a bit too quick over your question I guess.


Yes in that case you have to get rid of the synaptic drivers/software as it interferes with the vmware keyboard logic.

I normally recommend to uninstall synaptic before running the physical to virtual conversion.

maybe I have the similar problem:

I create a 'empty' windows 10 host under workstation 15.5.1

login / mouse and Keyboard are working fine

I also can use the  key 'CTRL+ALT+DEL'  in the menue-bar

BUT

in a second W10 VM create from VM Converter Standalone

I can user the mouse,

but cannot use the keyboard

and also cannot use the  key 'CTRL+ALT+DEL'  in the menue-bar

what to do ?

also delete ?

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4d36e96b-e325-11cebfc1-08002be10318}

Hi,

You can try that if you manage to do that with just the mouse. I personally have no experience with removing that registry key.

The alternative is what I already mentioned. Look for the Synaptic software installed at the original laptop which you are migrating to virtual and uninstall that.

It pretty much always has that installed in these cases.

Of course it means you have to rerun the converter process to go from physical to virtual.
