Honestly you don't wan't to hear this but...
If you "need" full functionality, you should not be running beta software.
You downloaded the Mouse and Keyboard software for Windows XP, that is not
the OS that you are currently running, so it is not surprising that they do
not install/work. I am using the MSFT Wireless Keyboard/Mouse set and 90+%
of the functions work, the only thing I have found not to work is that I can
not assign actions to the favorites keys..but since I do not use them, that
is not an issue..
I have not bought the Bluetooth keyboard so I do not know anything about how
So in answer to what you do...wait for Vista to be released to retail, or
wait until drivers
are released for your devices.
