Thank you for your comment, although I do not have any problem in connecting the remote keyboard with the ComputeStick.
The problem is that when I shutdown and restart the Compute Stick, I cannot use the remote keyboard to then log back in to the Compute Stick as it only reconnects after you get past the log-in screen. This is a major flaw with the remote keyboard (or the PC host app) as you have to find another keyboard/mouse to connect to the PC just to log-on - this defeats the object of the remote keyboard app.
Does anyone else have any suggestions please as it is really frustrating?
The problem could be easily solved by the Intel developers, using a Windows Service (which starts automatically with the operating system) instead of an application starting after the user log-in. The remote keyboard app looks now like a Work-In-Progress so I hope a new version will include this suggestion.
In that case, you can try the following:
If you are using Windows 7, click the start button.
Type shell:startup and in that folder, drag the created shortcut to that folder and that is suppose to fix the problem.
If you are using another version of Windows you can do the same steps in the search or run window.
ivanu_intel - Thank you for the suggestion, although as AdiGB says it does not work as it only runs after the log-in screen.
Unless there are any other workarounds then I think AdiGB is right that Remote Keyboard needs to use a Windows Service.
It is really disappointing that you cannot use the Remote Keyboard with Compute Stick until after you have got past the log-in screen. Come on Intel - please sort this out!
I am not sure that I follow the points that you are making in your latest messages.
Ivanu_Intel - The Remote Keyboard Host Program on the Compute Stick only starts up after the log-in screen. The wireless network does connect at the log-in screen, but that does not help using the Remote Keyboard as it only connects AFTER the log-in screen.
AdiGB - It is not a problem of the Wireless Network - my iPhone and the ICS are on the same Wireless Network. The problem is that the Remote Keyboard Host Program on the Compute Stick only starts after the log-in screen.
Incidentally, I bought a Tecknet X340 Bluetooth Mini-Keyboard and I cannot connect that either! I'm not having much luck! The only way that I can use the ICS at the moment is using a USB keyboard and mouse, which I would rather not.
The next version of the Remote Keyboard Host App will allow you to enter your Windows credentials at the login screen. We expect to release it late this week or early next, barring any unforeseen issues during testing. So, keep an eye out for it on our download page here - Intel® Download Center
