Hi John,

To copy your version 4 settings to version 5, please follow these steps. I revised these slightly from https://www.keybreeze.com/forum/post/23/where-are-my-settings-stored-how-do-i-transfer-settings-to-another-machine since you already activated the Pro version:

Version 4 to version 5:

1. On the old machine, click Start > Run > type %appdata% and press Enter.

2. Copy the Keybreeze4 folder to a backup location, such as a network folder, email, or USB stick.

3. On the new machine, click Start > Run > type %appdata% and press Enter. Paste the Keybreeze4 folder from the backup location to the new one.

4. On the new machine, if Keybreeze 5 is already installed, back up the %appdata%\Keybreeze5 folder. Then uninstall Keybreeze 5 from Control Panel > Programs and Features.

Hello,

I was able to reproduce the error when typing an recognized entry with a dash present. I'll fix this for the next version.

In the meantime, you can type add as a keyword and add a keyword that opens e-sword. If the name exists in the command list, it will not throw the error:

If Win+R doesn't work either, it is likely a Windows permission issue. You might try mapping the network folder to a drive letter. That may cause Windows to display an error that explains what the problem is. Regarding the crash that occurs when making a change to a text function, I'm not able to reproduce that issue. Would you be able to send me a screenshot of the error and the windows that are open behind it? I can send you an email if you want to respond to that with the screenshot.

For the network folder, if you press the Windows key + R and paste the same target there, e.g. c:\windows\explorer.exe \\machine-name, does that work? If the target matches between the Run dialog box and the Target text field of Keybreeze Desktop, it should work from both. If it doesn't work from both, it could be due to Windows permissions. Keybreeze Desktop could be running as a different user or with a different set of permissions from the Run dialog box, or there could be something else at play, like UAC or third party software, that is blocking Keybreeze Desktop from accessing that network folder. Does it work if you open a network folder from the same machine, e.g. c:\windows\explorer.exe \\127.0.0.1. If that works, it would indicate that something is blocking Keybreeze Desktop from accessing the original network folder. For the crashing issue when running the 'list' and 'add' keywords, I haven't heard of that happening before. If you run them by themselves, everything wor...

Hi Steve,

If you moved to a new PC, the Email Address Converter must be downloaded separately, which you can do so here -- https://www.keybreeze.com/forum/post/73/outlook-email-address-converter. If you already downloaded the Email Address Converter and are getting an error, please let me know what that error is.

Are you getting an error when opening files in network locations? Or is it taking a long time? If the latter, try the following -- https://www.keybreeze.com/forum/post/39/how-to-open-a-network-folder-or-file-from-keybreeze.

There is a way to run Keybreeze Desktop as an administrator every time, but it involves several steps, so I documented this in a separate post -- https://keybreeze.com/forum/post/88

Hi Steve, a few things that come to mind:

1. Are you running Excel as an administrator? If you are running Keybreeze Desktop as a regular user and Excel as an administrator, the hotkey will not work. One way to test this would be to navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Keybreeze5, right-click Keybreeze.exe and click Run As Administrator. Then see if the hotkey works in Excel.

2. Are you running Excel as another user? Or are you running it over a terminal session, like Citrix?

3. Have you tried to temporarily change the hotkey to something else, like Shift + Space, to see if that works in Excel?

Hi John, are you saying that you when you press the hotkey, Keybreeze Desktop appears, but you can't type anything in the window? Have you tried rebooting your machine to see if that fixes the problem? If you can't type anything in the window, or the window appears unresponsive, force closing it and reopening it, or rebooting your machine, may fix the issue.

Another possibility is that the files that store the settings got corrupted, and that's causing it to appear unresponsive. You can navigate to %appdata% and back up the Keybreeze5 folder to a separate location. Once the folder is backed up, uninstall Keybreeze Desktop from Control Panel > Programs and Features (do not retain the existing settings). Then install it again. That should install it with the default settings that work. You could then close the application and restore your settings from the backup location to the %appdata%\Keybreeze5 folder to see if they work or if the problem comes back.
