Amdek has a keyboard driver called CLREPC.EXE to help with keyboard incompatibilities with QuickBasic. To obtain this file, you can call an Amdek regional office at (312) 364-1180. This program is not guaranteed by Microsoft to work properly and is only mentioned for your information.


It is best to create a batch file that loads the CLREPC.EXE driver and then invokes QuickBasic. The following is a sample batch file:

   set epc

This loads the driver, runs QuickBasic, and then resets the keyboard after you exit QuickBasic.

This keyboard correction does not let you highlight text with the extended-keyboard cursor keys; instead, you must use the numeric keypad with the SHIFT key.
