Windows 8 Pro RTM. ThinkVantage Key / Black Key anyone?

#1 Post by barrywohl » Sat Nov 03, 2012 7:18 am

I did a clean install of Windows 8 Pro x64 last weekend on my X230T. It didn't install the black key (to the right of the microphone on/off button) on my X230T. I couldn't get this key to work either on the same laptop with Windows 8 Pro Release Preview. I haven't tried the registry hack yet on RTM, but the hack didn't work with Release Preview.

Has anyone gotten it to work with a clean install?

Here's one version of the registry hack I tried with Release Preview:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\IBM\TPHOTKEY\8001]
"File"="C:\Program Files\Lenovo\Lenovo Solution Center\LSC.exe"
First Thinkpad 755CX in 1995. First IBM: PC 1982 8088 w 64K RAM, dual floppy. Currently in use:
X230T with Win8Pro x64, i7, 500gb ssd; W700 WUXGA RAID 1 Blu-Ray W7Pro x64, occasionally a T61p with Win7Pro x64
