Hi There,

I'm running Windows Remote Desktop from Snow Leopard to access a windows pc remotely for programming in visual studio. However, I am unable to type a tilde, quote or double quote symbol.

I have the feeling that it has something to do with the fact that mac uses a different encoding for these symbols than windows. And it's the symbols that are being sent to the remote computer, rather than the keystrokes themselves.

Does anyone have a solution?

Thanks a lot in advance.

ps: I use remote desktop because I think it's unpractical to reboot to windows with bootcamp, and a virtual machine decreases performance too much.
QUOTE Thanks

I already solved it myself.

Setting the keyboard input language to US, instead of US International PC solved it.

QUOTE Thanks
