Latest Software Package for HotKey for R52... for Windows XP??

2009-04-28, 12:02 PM

On the Lenovo Drivers Matrix for R52, there is a link for:

  "HotKey driver for Windows Vista, XP, 2000 - Notebooks"


Now, I like to keep my system up to date and went in and downloaded and installed

the software.  After all, a package that is labeled for "Windows XP" can be assumed

to be valid for XP, right?


Well, after the install, I looked more closely at the "write-up" for this package

and under "Supported Systems", I saw that by the entry for R52 there was a note

as follows: "(*1)".


This note states:

*1: Only Windows Vista is supported.


So, even though the title of this package (AND the

entry on the Drivers Matrix) CLEARLY states that this

software is for Windows XP, the actual documentation

states that this is only for Windows Vista!



a. What do I believe here?  Clearly, there is some sort of error

here -- either in the Matrix or in the notation regarding Vista.

b. If this really is ONLY for Vista, do I have to back out this

software to the previous version of the HotKey Software?

c. What is the best / safest way to revert to the previous version

of the HotKey software?


Thank you for your help -- and I hope that Lenovo will address

this (at the least) confusing matter!!

I just updated the Hotkey driver for my R52 today.  Follow this link to find the same drivers that I used on my XP machine.
