WinVNKey won't work in Word 2010

I have just upgraded from Windows XP/Office 2007 to Windows 7/Office 2010. I am finding that I cannot get my Vietnamese typing software, WinVNKey, to work in Word 2010. It works when I type in my web browser, and it works when I type in Deja Vu, but when I try to type in Word it acts as though it is not turned on.

I really need WinVNKey because a) I use an idiosyncratic typing method that I developed 20 years ago on VPS Keys (which allows the user to configure their own keyboard) so I can't use UniKey or Windows keyboard or any software that requires me to follow a preset keyboard, as that will require me to learn a new typing style and I'd like to avoid that and b) I can't use VPS keys because for some reason it does not work in Deja Vu. WinVNKey has been a good solution in the past, because it both allows me to configure my own keyboard and works well in Deja vu. But now, alas, it does not work in Word 2010.

If anyone else has encountered a problem like this or has any suggestions, please let me know!

Thanks,

Rosemary Nguyen

Did you upgrade your WinVNKey as well?
See http://winvnkey.sourceforge.net/

Unfortunately it hasn't been upgraded since Windows Vista. But there's no chatter online about it not working with Office 2010 - I even found one forum where a fellow mentions he was using it with Word 2010 before running into a totally unrelated problem - so I am wondering if there is a fix out there that I'm not aware of.
