Keying Tool problems
Both of my PCs now have stopped running the WAP keying tool, with different problems, one weeks ago, one this week. I have done uninstall, fresh downloads, on both of them several times, without success. One just has a blank screen with two lines of dots; the other has an “Unexpected error” message.
I have contacted WAP support about this, but I know how busy they are. I wondered whether someone on here can help – otherwise that’s it for me, after about 14 years’ keying. I enjoy t, and I miss it.

Hello Chris,
I have been able to pull your emails but will need to reach out to our dev team for additional help. We should get back to you on Nov 23rd or Nov 24th.
