#132 autotype not working in Vista

When using Password Safe V3.13 in Vista, the autotype function does not work properly. Neither the tab (\t) nor the enter (\n) work. I don't know if it is that they do not get passed properly or that Vista just ignores them. However, the result is that both the username and password are typed into the username field (pw visible). This does not seem to be an IE7 problem, because it behaves similarly with other programs. I have tested using the same psafe3 file on two XP systems (one with IE6 and another with IE7) and autotype worked perfectly. If this is not a problem with Password Safe, please post or email (to pmiller@ofbmic.com) the change to Vista to make it function properly.

    I'm using 3.13 with Vista Home Premium. You might try turning off UAC to see if that is causing the problem. I also use a default delay of 100 for all sites. You should also check to see if th problem is caused by any third party software that monitors your keyboard.
