A wrapper library for WinIO
A wrapper library for WinIO
Thanks for the great WinIO library which comes from Yariv Kaplan.
The WinIO library binary distribution will be accessed from winiobinary package.
NOTE: This library has been renamed from ‘rabird.winio’ to ‘pywinio’ after 0.3.0 .
NOTICE: You must have a ps/2 keyboard connected to your PC if you test on win10 or later, otherwise this sample won’t works!

WinIo requires administrative privileges to run properly. This can be achieved by:
Using WinIo from a service running as LocalSystem (SE_LOAD_DRIVER_NAME privilege must be explicitly enabled).
Embedding a manifest file in the application that requests privilege elevation.
Requiring the user to choose the “Run as Administrator” option when launching the application.
The included C# samples demonstrate using an embedded manifest file to request privilege elevation.
Driver Signing Requirements on 64-bit Systems
64-bit versions of Windows only load device drivers that are signed by a code signing certificate issued by a public CA such as Verisign, Thawte, etc. WinIo64.sys must not be deployed on production machines unless a code signing certificate is obtained and used to sign this file. The bundled copy of WinIo64.sys is signed with a self-signed certificate and can only be used on development/test machines with Windows running in a special “test” mode. In order to use the bundled version of WinIo64.sys, you need to take the following steps:
Open an elevated command window by right-clicking the icon and clicking “Run as Administrator”.
Type the following command to enable test-signing:
bcdedit.exe /set TESTSIGNING ON
Reboot the machine

Renamed to pywinio
Claim this library renamed to pywinio!
Removed support of python 2.x
Supported automatic deploy by appveyor
Depends on winiobinary project, so we don’t need to download WinIo binaries during setup.py
Can’t install from packaged zip file due to missing rabird_bootstrap.py
Fixed not working with 64bits os
Fixed not working with python3
