Assuming mouse input is working, are you able to open/import a chart via the File menu? If so, does keyboard input at least work in the Windows file browser dialog that comes up to select a file for import?

Edit: I wonder, if you bring up the on screen Windows keyboard, does manipulating that virtual keyboard with the mouse while EOF is the foreground problem seem to send keyboard input to EOF?

Edit 2: Here is a keyboard testing program that comes with the Allegro 4 source code. Please give this a try and let me know whether it reports keyboard input:

I had deleted the program from my computer, and went to redownload it today to try your suggestions. I opened it up and the key functions worked.

It seems to have worked itself out. 

Thanks for all your suggestions.

Here's the 2-20-2019 hotfix:

Here's the 5-2-2019 hotfix:

Tried a USB keyboard, no success.

Installed and tried the previous program versions, no success. It doesn't even work on the base version of the program without the hotfixes installed.

What version of Windows are you using? What model of laptop is this? Did any previous build of EOF work normally on this laptop?Windowws

Windows 7, Alienware M15X. I haven't tried any old versions of EOF; where would I be able to find them?

Then there's something exotic about your keyboard or the software that it runs with, just how high polling resolution mice don't work well in programs that use Allegro (a game development library EOF uses).

When you press keys, do you see any activity on the line int he Information Panel that says:

If you try a cheap USB keyboard, let me know if it works differently. Otherwise there's probably not much else I can suggest.

There is no activity in the information panel.

I'll see if I can find another keyboard and let you know.

Do ANY other input fields in other dialogs (ie. Song>Properties) accept input? Does keyboard input work outside of the menus (ie. left and right arrow keys to seek)? There may be something unusual about the laptop, but if you had a cheap USB keyboard around you could give that a try.

No other input fields accept input and keyboard input outside of menus also does not work.
