Consider the following scenario:
- You install Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012.
- When you are at the password creation screen, immediately click the Ease of Access menu from the bottom left hand corner.
- Click the On-Screen Keyboard to launch it.
The On-Screen Keyboard may not be fully initialized yet when you attempt to launch it immediately after the initial installation.
Wait about 20 seconds before launching the On-Screen Keyboard when you are at the password creation screen. Note that this delay occurs only when you attempt to launch the On-Screen Keyboard very quickly during the first boot of Windows.
