What is ehkeyctl.dll?

Part of Media Center SDK Triple-tap/Soft Keyboard Control by Microsoft

What is it?

Triple-tap/Soft Keyboard Control is part of the Microsoft Media Center application. Triple-tap text entry requires the user to enter letters by pressing number keys on the remote control. By repeatedly pressing a particular key, the user cycles through the set of letters associated with that key. Users can use triple-tap entry in text fields using the remote control and by using the triple-tap layout of the onscreen keyboard, which is useful for certain languages.

How is ehkeyctl.dll loaded?

Safe for scripting control - ehkeyctl.dll has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {1989C694-3CF9-4a56-B1CC-2E3CB1D753D7} with and identifier of CLSID\{1989C694-3CF9-4a56-B1CC-2E3CB1D753D7}\Implemented Categories\{7DD95801-9882-11CF-9FA9-00AA006C42C4}. Safe for scripting is a Windows policy that disables the Internet Explorer security prompt for Windows Installer scripts. It allows Web-based programs to install software on the computer without notifying the user. By default, when a script hosted by an Internet browser tries to install a program on the system, the system warns users and allows them to select or refuse the installation. This setting suppresses the warning and allows the installation to proceed.
Safe for initializing control - ehkeyctl.dll has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {1989C694-3CF9-4a56-B1CC-2E3CB1D753D7} with and identifier of CLSID\{1989C694-3CF9-4a56-B1CC-2E3CB1D753D7}\Implemented Categories\{7DD95802-9882-11CF-9FA9-00AA006C42C4}. When a program is initialized, it can receive data from another program for initializing its state. This is a potential security hazard because the data could come from an untrusted source. Programs that guarantee no security breach regardless of the data source are considered safe for initialization and are registered as such.
