as of yesterday, the Fn-Hotkeys stopped working on my Booklet. During startup, I get an error message that the HotKey App stopped working. I have to admit I installed quite a lot this weekend on the booklet (symbian sdks, carbide, qt, etc), and after one of the restarts, this error came up.
I've tried going back to an earlier restore point (rstrui.exe) as well as uninstalling, reinstalling the Hotkey Utility from the support download site a couple of times, but still the same. When I uninstall it, I at least can get BT, wifi and 3G working through F8 (but it's all or nothing, no selective on/off).
Any ideas - am I the only with this? Probably have to go through a full system restore, right?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Not had this problem, but Once you have installed the Hot Key Utility, have you tried going to C:\Program Files\Hot Key and launching CeEkey.exe?
The hotkey on my booklet is also acting weird. They are 'OK' in that volume, brightness etc works. However, except for the brightness icon, the rest dun show up on screen. For example, when I press Fn + F10, I dun get the selection on screen; it just turns the wireless stuff on/off.
Have tried installing and uninstalling whatever that is available on Nokia Support but it didn't help.
Any ideas whatelse can be done?
Dun have any external devices connected/installed. Really at a loss now.
Even the GPS isn't working. This gotta be one of the worse experience with a commercial product...
OK, I have it again - after I had to go back to a full system restore... now I had my booklet nearly where I wanted it to and everything was working perfectly.... except Hotkey is lost again. The CeEKey.exe starts and then quietly dies again...
here is what I find in the system log for it:
not happy at all!!
I had the same problem and I could solve it. I think it is a problem of a windows update because I had not installed any programa when it stopped working.
Well, what I did is going to hotkeys folder and execute CeEkey.exe in windows xp compatibility mode. You have to open it as an administrator.
I hope it can solve your problem as it did in my nokia.
I didn't know what happen with my Fn key ( he same error above) when i upgraded for new windows version , i have tried this and everything then ok.
Click on C:\Program Files\Hotkey\CeEKey
Right click on file - chose Properties - chose Tab 'Compatibility':
1. Chose Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows 7
2. Privilege: Chose Run this program as an administrator
Apply - Ok
I tried reinstalling the hotkey driver and run it in compatability and admin mode - no luck.
But by removing the battery while Windows was on, at least the Wireless network came alive again.
However, the Hotkeys are still dead....
