After successfully installing the Sculpt Mobile keybaord via Bluetooth (typing this message on it right now), and downloading the Mouese and Keyboard Center Application from http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-us/d/sculpt-mobile-keyboard (as specified in the quick start guide) the installed Mouse and Keyboard Center will not recognize the keyboard at all, only the Microsoft Sculpt Mobile mouse I use in parallel.
Removing the Mouse and Keyboard Center, restarting the PC, and re-downloading and re-installing does not help.
Please advice on how to get Mouse & Keyboard Center to work ... or an alternative on how to customize the keyboard functions (like F1..F12 keys)

I'm in the same boat. I'm on the phone right now with MS Level 2 Support, and they're not able to help. The en-us site is instructing to download the Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center 2.2.731:
...while the en-ca site lists no driver/software downloads for this model:
Right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing.

*Sorry about my poor English.
I have the same problem.
I ran into this page when I was looking for the way to change the layout of Sculpt Mobile keyboard. I'd like to get back the old-fashioned function keys instead of Windows 8 shortcuts. I know the existence of Fn key, but I don't want to press it with "function keys (I might need to call them Windows 8 ...)" at the same time.
I hope Mouse & Keyboard Center can make it possible.
Is there anyone who can help me?
Thanks in advance.
I am also experiencing the problem limitation.
I need to use traditional function keys, F1... F12 instead of new Windows 8 shortcuts. As a software developers, we use these function keys very much.
How can I lock the function behavior. I also have an sculpt mobile keyboard.

Incredibly Microsoft just released a new version of the Mouse and Keyboard Center and this issue is still there. Fail.
