- I found this is not working though and noted the keyboard driver is for a Microsoft 101/2 key while nothing gets the embedded number pad to work [while observing even the top numeral row on a regular keyboard will not call the Alt characters].
Might also be worth mentioning there is a system event when trying this - a sort of key click sound, not the angry pc speaker beep, although it seems to denote the same, 'acknowledged stroke - but null all the same'.
Is there a dedicated driver for the 86-key keyboard - or even better an IBM installation & driver disk set for anything unnecessarily replaced during a Windows installation that I might be missing - it was a refurbished unit I bought years ago, but it's usefulness still sees it booted for purpose in the present.
[It's running Windows98 with ME upgrade and everything else is fine, I like it just the way it is save for those Alt+nnnn characters eluding me....
...Obviously charmap.exe is a way to go here, and must suffice for the time being - but when you know those numbers it's considerably quicker to just type them in - & it seems weird that I have a numberpad array illustrating a possible shifted function on the keyboard and while numlock does nothing to provide access].

Ok. Thanks for taking the time to answer, I'll keep looking over the GitHub repository - I've also emailed IBM, maybe they will respond, or set Watson on itThinkpad4by3 wrote:AFAIK I don't think you can do this.

I'm a little bit cloudy on the matter of ASCII and Unicode though - is there something to download that a user can manually update with - the system is not connected to the internet, and all this is done by ferrying with memory sticks so while I appreciate there's no unicode support in earlier windows versions - that's a Microsoft statement about their product..., https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cwe8bzh0.aspx - and may not reflect the gamut of possible solutions.
