Before you begin:

For data entry, instead of relying on the physical keyboard, user may choose to use Windows On-Screen Keyboard that gives access to all standard keys.

On-Screen Keyboard executable file, osk.exe, resides in System32 directory. Note that on 64-bit systems this file cannot be launched from 32-bit process. "File System Redirector" article on MSDN explains why:
32-bit applications can access the native system directory by substituting %windir%\Sysnative for %windir%\System32. WOW64 recognizes Sysnative as a special alias used to indicate that the file system should not redirect the access.
private static void StartOnScreenKeyboard()
{
    const string OskExe = "osk.exe";
    var winDir = Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable("WINDIR");

    if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(winDir))
    {
        return;
    }

    var oskPath = Path.Combine(
        Path.Combine(winDir, "sysnative"), OskExe);

    if (!File.Exists(oskPath))
    {
        oskPath = Path.Combine(
            Path.Combine(winDir, "system32"), 
            OskExe);
    }

    if (!File.Exists(oskPath))
    {
        return;
    }

    Process.Start(oskPath);
}

My comment:

On-Screen Keyboard class name is "OSKMainClass". With this knowledge, a VFP application can detect whether the On-Screen Keyboard window is visible -- by calling FindWindow. It can also move and hide the keyboard -- by calling SetWindowPos or similar API function.
