NTVDM.exe keyboard keys issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Had earlier Win Xp sp2, and had a old software that is 16bit.  I have now a new computer with Windows 10 pro 32bit, and i have enabled the NTVDM, so my old 16bit software is working fine, but the keyboard typing is wrong when i using the old software on NTVDM. My keyboard language is set to Norwegian(Bokmål). In word and other software the keyboard is typing the correct keys. Only when im using NTVDM, im then missing Å Æ Ø keys. All the other keys is working. Is it possible to change the NTVDM keyboard language(key typing) ?

  • Hi, 

    We would recommend to ask for help from the keyboard manufacturer to check if any related driver for 16 bit system as we think the reason might related with incompatibility between keyboard and NTVDM. 

    Bests,

  • Hello, go to c:\windows\system32\

    Edit config.nt as administrator

    Add the following lines:

    files=255
    dos=high, umb
    device=%SystemRoot%\system32\himem.sys
    COUNTRY=047,850, %SystemRoot%\system32\COUNTRY.SYS

    You can delete all other lines

    Do the same with autoexec.nt and add the following lines
    %SystemRoot%\system32\KB16 NO,850, %SystemRoot%\system32\KEYBOARD.SYS
