Setting Keyboard Map with VB.Net

Setting Keyboard Map with VB.Net

Setting Keyboard Map with VB.Net

Well, I'm stuck again, which means SkipVought will probably save my bacon.

Long story short, I'm creating a VB.Net application that interacts with EXTRA! X-treme 8.0 ©2004 (because that's how my company rolls). This app will be distributed to certain users around the company, make a copy of their local version of EXTRA!, and rename it to match the app. However, users tend to change their keyboard mapping settings on occasion which can throw off my "expertly written" code.

I need to change their new session's Key Map to "EXTRA! OFFICE (101 KEY).EKM".

I have a variable (ses) assigned as the EXTRA.ExtraSession, so I can do the following w/ no troubles:

CODE --> vb.net

and it returns the currently selected Key Map.

However, when I try to set the Key Map:

CODE --> vb.net

ses.KeyMap = "EXTRA! OFFICE (101 KEY).EKM" 
all it does it set the Key Map to the letter E. Odd.

The only thing I could find related to this was at the following article: http://www.tek-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=1328877

Bumping this - hoping someone sees it.
