    Hi,

    try to install the value added package 1.2.28 from the driver DVD (delivered with my laptop and newer as the driver on toshibas website).
    The installtion works well and after the reboot the hotkey doesn't work.
    Even I try the older driver from the website 1.2.25 it doesn't work also.

    After this I try to install a part of the driver. I find this comment:

    +For using the FN keys you have to install Toshiba Value Added Package and Flash Cards supports utility. Make sure that both versions are released for Windows 7 64bit already. If you choose a Vista version it will not work!+

    +Here you can download all:+
    +http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers+

    +Value Added Package must be installed firstly. ;)+

    But the flash cards utility is a part of the value added package and I was not able to deactivate the flash cards utility under Windows 7 32bit.
    This utility seem to be used for other utilities.

    Has someone a solution to activate the hotkeys?

    Greetings

    Wibke

    There are two applications which can be downloaded:
    *Value Added Package v1.2.34* and *Flash Cards supports utility v1.63.0.4*

    Please install both applications again!

    If both were already installed, then remove it from the system firstly and after new reboot install the both drivers again.

    Who says that?

    These tools are not the same and you need both!!!

    So check the Toshiba page again and download Flash Cards Support Utility. You have to install it after VAP installation.

    Hi MasterG,

    thank you for your advice. It works. On the german website there is only v1.2.25. So I use the version from my DVD and the Flash Card Utility v1.63.0.4. It works well.

    :-)

    Hi TwoLags,

    It is a mistake. I thought the Flash Cards Support Utility is a part of the value added package. Soooorrry ;-)
