TabTip not working in Fall Creators when using custom Shell

I have a kiosk application which replaces explorer.exe as the Shell. Starting with Fall Creators, TabTip no longer displays including if I execute TabTip.exe

If I run explorer.exe it starts working but then the taskbar and other things get created. Is there a way to use TabTip without using explorer as the Shell? Thank you.

This might be a compatibility issues and the best thing for you is to rollback to a supported release.

There seems to be some early adopter issues at this time with Windows 10 1709, if you can, I recommend you downgrade to your previous version until the Fall Creators Update matures with future cumulative updates.

Open Start > Settings > Update & security > Recovery > under Go back to my previous version of Windows 10, click Get started.

Press Control + Alt + Delete
Click Sign out

At the Sign In screen, hold down the shift key on your keyboard while clicking the Power button on the screen
Continue to hold down the shift key while clicking Restart
Continue to hold down the shift key until the Advanced Recovery Options menu appears

Click Troubleshoot

Click Advanced options

Click Go back to the previous version of Windows

Hi Aileen,

I am using the same configuration as Yves. A kiosk application named "SOTI" and when windows is in kiosk mode the keyboard "Tabtip.exe" doesn't work anymore. It's a big isue for me because I use this mode with almost 500 windows tablets and even with the windows update service disable this Fall Update Crator update is installing.... So every time I have to downgrade windows and it's lot of loss time for me.

So do you have a solution for block the update or for solve the keyboard issue. I already ask SOTI but they don't have any solution..

Thank's by advance for your help !

Same problem. What can we do? Is there any help out there. Rollback is not really a solution ... can't hold it up forever. Windows 10 with its restriction in tablet mode is quite tricky to handle, but this is now the deathblow for my application. No keyboard, no way to use! Need a solution soon ... any help is appreciated.

thanks,

Actually we face the same problem... Rollback is not a solution because Windows 10 forces to run Windows Update.  It creates additional manpower to rollback every time.  Look for any solution to fix this issue.

Thanks!

I wish I could at least know if this is considered a bug that will be fixed or if this happened by design.
