I have been plagued with an issue with SendKeys and SendDragonkeys that for the life of me I cannot figure out what the root causes is for the last couple weeks I am hoping someone might be able to help me out. Anytime I tried to use either of those two functions I notice that I lose the focus of the window at least in DragonPad so for example if it's just a loop hitting the delete button it will delete the first couple characters and then I'll see the window go out of focus and it obviously will stop deleting at that point. In other windows it doesn't pull the focus away it just fails to work altogether. I'm not sure if it's a coincidence but around the same time a few weeks back I ended up having to kill a weird process that looked like it was an invisible window maybe it was being used by SendKeys or SendDragonkey's but I'm not hundred percent sure. Right now I had to switch all of those functions to use Sendsystemkeys as for whatever reason that function is not affected. The problem is it's just too darn slow for certain tasks and I really like to figure out what happened to SendKeys.

 

I have done the following:

on a VM installed Dragon added my profile everything works

complete reinstall of Dragon and used Dragon 15 clean on my existing computer even a new profile I'm getting the same behavior (not fixed)

 

This lends me to believe that it's some type of Windows library issue.I'm open to any and all suggestions at this point. I even tried to identify what the focus window it jumps to was but when I use any script the window title for the focus is empty doesn't tell me much
