After upgrading to Office 2003 Pro (from Office XP Pro),
the Visual Keyboard (VKeyInst.EXE) no longer installs.
Is there an updated version, or a replacement utility,
that works similar to Visual Keyboard?

P.S.: My O/S is Windows XP Pro version 5.1.2600, my MS
Office Pro is version 11.6113.5703

Unfortunately the Visual Keyboard was originally designed for Office 2000
and 2002. As the System Requirements section of the download page for the
Addin specifies:

System Requirements
Supported Operating Systems: Windows 2000, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows

This download works with the following Office applications:
Access 2002/2000
Excel 2002/2000
FrontPage 2002/2000
Outlook 2002/2000
PowerPoint 2002/2000
Word 2002/2000

But as a temporary workaround I would recomend you perform a minimal
install of Office XP, and then install Visual Keybord. Once the detection
is bypassed, it will work with Office 2003. After installing the utility,
the legacy version of Office can be uninstalled.

I hope this helps.
