So im running visual studio in boot camp, and the f5 key is the shortcut to debug. Somehow, it is not working. I have installed all the drivers, and the boot camp partition/windows installation all went fine. Any suggestions to get my f5 key to work?

Vista? XP? What kind of hardware? MacBook? MBP? iMac? Have you updated Boot Camp to 2.1? Try re-installing the keyboard drivers. Also, does the F5 key work in other applications when you're booted to Windows?

Regards.

function keys on bootcamp windows OS

To get the function keys to work... hold down
fn key + f1 key

For example... if you want to run visual studio by hitting f5,
hold down fn + f5.

That's it!!!
