Thank you for reporting this issue. I am sure you are aware that due to the type of window you get, the mouse will not actually work. You can use the mouse to give the window focus, but then use the tab key to tab to "OK" and the Enter key to activate the selection. Could you confirm if you tried using the keyboard method to advance at this screen?

Hallo Charlie,
thanks for the fast response.

I can't confirm your suggestion to use the keyboard to activate the
selection.

I can use the mouse to give the focus to the window and it is also
possible to use the tab key to activate the "Forward" button. But
afterwards neither the NumPad Enter nor the RecDown key could activate
the selection.

Regards
Gerhard
