Technical Information

My-T-Soft Basic is a standard Windows Application and does not require any special drivers. It will work with all pointing devices (mouse, touch screen, pen, HID, etc.) interfaces, along with keyboard and mouse emulation drivers that are compatible with the ones that ship with Microsoft Windows.

My-T-Soft Basic is written in C and C++, accesses the Windows API directly, and operates at the same level as the operating system. The software does not require any platform, driver, or additional software support.

The My-T-Soft 2.xx software is the next generation of the My-T-Soft family. My-T-Soft Basic is the Windows Run-Time Target for IMG's Build-A-Board Designer Tool, and it is built from a cross-platform code-base. The code-base is a combination of target specific code, shared core keyboard software code, and shared lower-level abstracted operating system API code that has been under development for over 25 years.

For My-T-Soft 1.xx for Windows, see My-T-Soft for Windows.
For Android, see My-T-Soft for Android.
For Linux, see My-T-Soft for Linux.
For Mac OS X, see My-T-Soft for Mac OS X. Other platforms support coming soon.
