MS MCE keyboard running on XP Pro

Hi guys

Can an MS MCE keyboard be configured to run on XP Pro? I am building my own PVR and dont want to use Media Centre.

I read somewhere that the mouse drivers have been 'ported' - wondering if this applied to the keyboard as well?

  1. *BUMP* - anyone?
  2. The easiest way imho is to check MS’s site. If they have an official XP driver for it then it should work. Otherwise I wouldn’t recommend using some user modified driver.

    Edit: A quick search on the Microsoft hardware site gave me this:
  3. pretty sure the specs say MCE 2005 required. Like the OS it's not that great. Check this one out.

    Funny thing is that the MS site provides an XP driver for it. I think the best thing for the OP to do is to send them an e-mail.
  5. Well, it does say the updates are for MCE. But I did try downloading, when I ran them, sure enough, they complained that the OS was not MCE version.

    Someone must have got around this..its just another HID for heavens sake. Why make it OS specific?
