Help Keyboard doesn't respond with game

Hi,

I hope someone can help me.

I finally managed to get a copy of Grim Fandango (a game I've been hoping to get a chance to play for years). Installed it, watched the introductory movie thing and then....I can't move the character.

None of the keys on my laptop make the character respond. I even tried plugging in a Wireless USB keyboard to see if, for some reason, there is a problem with my keyboard. Again nothing happens.

I am running Windows 7 and have followed the instructions I found online about using the Grim Fandango launcher from the Quick and Easy site. I am also running it in Compatability Mode for Windows 98.

The odd thing is, when I close the program (closing it by clicking the cross in the windowed version or 'Alt+F4' on the fullscreen version) I get a game menu that pops up which asks me whether I really want to exit the game 'Y for yes and N for No' and now the game responds to what I type on my laptop keyboard.

Please can someone help?

Thanks
