    Dir11 is loosing keyboard focus!

    stageit ab Level 1
      I have a kiosk application running WITHOUT a mouse. All inputs is from the keyboard. The app is autostarting when Windows starts.
      After playing a Flash animation and a mpeg2 video (Mpeg adv xtra) the application looses keyboard focus, wich result in Windows warning sound when you press a key and the key is not sent to the application.
      The problem is solved if you click with a mouse, but there is no mouse as I mentioned. The problem is NOT solved by <alt> <tab>-switching forth and back.

      I know this is an old MX2004 bug, and the work around then was to set the document type to "tool". But this is not helping in Dir11.

      Anyone hwo has a work around?
      Where to report bugs now a days? Does Adobe care at all? (It's not easy to even find the Director support pages!)

          Hi,

          maybe you can use one of the Xtras than can simulate a mouseclick?
