I have downloaded Virtual PC 2007 and installed it. I then installed Vista Ultima onto it. The problem I'm having is that when the Virtual PC is running my keyboard will not work correctly. When I press the letter "m" for example the narrator program starts.

Any clues on where I've gone wrong?

Is the keyboard captured by the real or the virtual PC? Is narrator opening in Windows ?? or on Vista running on the virtual machine.

The narrator issue occurs whenever I use the keyboard, in Virtual or real PC. When I was trying to enter setup data in Ultima loaded on the virtual pc then the narrator would start up.

When I was typing into the search bar of IE7 or Firefox on the host pc the same thing happened.

When you install a Virtual Machine, you must always install Virtual Machine Additions as well. load up Vista in your VM, go to Action, then Install Virtual Machine Additions.
