What is an PCSWS037 error?

Can you please explain what an PCSWS037 error is caused from?

A PCSWS037 keyboard error occurs when configuring a new Personal Communications session on a Windows machine with SMS installed.

If Microsoft SMS is installed on the Windows system, the problem could be caused by the KBSTUFF5.SYS virtual keyboard driver.

According to Microsoft Knowledge Database article Q269177, the solution is to rename the KBSTUFF5.SYS file KBSTUFF5.OLD and reboot. This will prevent this driver from being loaded.
