Why are certain keys disabled when I run Flash Player?

Apr 19, 2012 5:44 AM

I am building a resource for my students which allows text entry into a text input text field. When I try to type the answer a number of keys are disabled. I have tried disabling keyboard shortcuts in the Flash editor. I have then tried closing the program and just running it in the stand alone Flash Player. The list of keys that do not work are given below.
            
The keys that do not work are 5,6,8,9,0,P,J,K,B, and X. I have not tested other alphanumeric characters.
 
the Flash Player version is version 9.


I am using Adobe Flash 5 at home but save as version 4 for use in school. I am running ActionScript 2.
