Annoying bug in virtual pc

Back to Forum: Tech Off

    Trying to use virtual pc with a danish keyboard is very difficult. A Danish keyboard (as with many none english keyboards) requires you to press "Alt gr" to access characters such as \ $ { and }. Obviously these charaters are very imporant when trying to do anything even vaguely techincal (like type a path) on windows. Vitural pc makes it impossible to access these characters because pressing "alt gr" releases the mouse pointer.

    Actaully some one just showed me you can press alt-shift character key instead. Not a bug after all d'oh.

    You can also change the key that Virtual PC uses - just click on "Current host key" in the Keyboard section of the VPC options and press the key you want to use.
