Well I was about ready to ask a question about why the function keys don't work in fasmw with my new Microsoft Wireless keyboard 3000 (Version 2). But the problem was solved after pressing the "(F)Lock" key just after the function keys, and they became useable again (you may have to do this with other software too.). So I figured I'd post this anyways just in case anybody else is having this problem.

I assume you mean, "F1..F12 don't work until after you press FLock once (to lock), and then it works like normal". My aunts' multimedia keyboard is like that, but it's not wireless.

Yep, thats what I meant. I thought people would assume I meant press once only.

microsoft wireless keayboard, or desktop sucks a lot.
mine (wireless desktop 700) was so bugged that i recovered the wired beyboard. the worse bug was intempestive CTRL key makes.
it was very boring in every normal use.
like scroll whell in a web page, or edit text in fasm. or where any other ctrl sensitives actions can occurs.

and it consume a lot of batteries, then, it is really not a good thing.

Didn't have any those problems with the wireless 3000 keyboard, Every thing setup without problems. Actually, For only $30US, it feels like a very solid keyboard, and the keys have a nice feel to them, and a very nice layout. It has a nice selection of "convenience" keys to define and re-define. The only thing I had to get used to is that the functions keys (F1-F12) aren't really keys, but buttons. So overall I'd give it two thumbs up! Very Happy
