    Tabtip starts to crash everytime Lockscreen appears and on-screen keyboard not available.
    Anyone know how to fix it?

    Surface Pro3 with windows 10 15031 (fast ring build)

    This is the handwriting/touch interface for the on-screen keyboard.
    A setting is hanging up, and needs this service to be closed in order to remedy.

    Try this: Get up and running, then change your on-screen keyboard to be one of those with touch keys, rather than a pen.

    Then restart.

    im using only on-screen heyboard, not pen interface, but ive tried, still error occurs.
    This problem is only on lockscreen, when Ive logged in = onscreen keyboard works great

    Try one of these solutions:

    1
    All settings -> Devices -> Typing -> "Show the touch keyboard when not in tablet mode and there's no keyboard attached"
    set swith to ON

    2
    Revert to previous Build, then install 10531 again. o_O
