ThinkPad Preferred Scrolling for Bluetooth Keyboard Keeps Crashing on Visual Studio 2012/2013

2013-08-18, 10:34 AM

I have a Thinkpad Compact Bluetooth Keyboard with TrackPoint (0B47189), the TrackPoint (scrolling) works well for other applications exceppt Visual Studio 2012/2013, on which HScrollFun.exe keeps crashing.

 

HScrollFun.exe is located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Lenovo\ThinkPad Compact Keyboard with TrackPoint driver\

 

Anyone who can help or has the same issue?

I have the same problem.

 

HScrollFun.exe disappears as VS 2012 launches. 

 

Also scrolling does not work in VMware

 

have you found any solutions?

Has anyone found a solution to this problem?  I'm experiencing the same issue.  My environment is as follows:

 

Windows 7 Professional SP1

Thinkpad Compact Keyboard Driver v1.4.8.0 

 

HScrollFun.exe crashes consistently when using the trackpoint center button from within Visual Studio 2012.  This was not the case with an earlier version of the driver.

 

I also own the Thinkpad USB Keyboard, and this issue does not exist with that keyboard.

 

It would be great if someone from Lenovo would respond with some information re: this error.  Thinkpad products are used heavily by software developers, so having this type of behavior is not acceptable.

 

Also, if someone has found a solution to the problem, please post.

 

Thanks!

A temporary solution would be uncheck the ThinkPad Preferred Scrolling under the Extenal Keyboard tab of mouse property. This would lead scrolling on browser acts like clicking the middle button of mouse, which is kind of annoying. Maybe we can write a program to watch the activiation/deactiveation of Visual Studio Windows and automatically change the settings? Unfortunately desktop developing is not what I am good at.

Vilic - Thanks for the work-around, it works.

 

Can anyone from Lenovo comment on when this bug will be patched?

So Lenovo released version 1.4.9.1 of the Thinkpad Compact Keyboard with Trackpoint driver, and this issue is still not fixed.

 

Any comment from someone at Lenovo?

Thanks for bringing this to the attention of Lenovo. I have similar problems and wrote about it here.

 

Several months have now passed and Lenovo did not fix this problem. The Compact USB Keyboard is the keyboard of choice for the Thinkpad 8 Tablet. So please Lenovo do something about these crashes!

@camsemccoy: In Chrome the extension named "MiddleButtonScroll" helped me to correct the scrolling issues.

Any voice from insiders? I love the hardware but the driver just sucks. And it has been 8 months!!! Please, fix it or make it open source so we can fix it for you.
