Win 7 Tablet – Show the on screen keyboard

I have had to do some SCCM Task sequence and Group policy work to make a Panasonic tablet play nicely with Windows 7. One setting that I found essential but that was poorly documented was how to show the on screen keyboard at login. Eventually with some digging and testing I found the setting:

HKLM|SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\ShowTabletKeyboard
I created a new OU  and an associated Group Policy for the Tablets and set the value of this to 1 using group policy preferences and happy days the on screen keyboard is ready to use at login.
