I am remoting into Windows XP, from a Windows 7 client using regular remoting client that comes with Windows.

in the options, it is set to use alt+tab on remote machine in fullscreen mode (which I am in) however it keeps using clients alt+tab.

same thing was happening for launchy (alt+space), but I simply quit local launchy, and than it started invoking the one on the remote machine.

what can I do to make alt+tab working on remote machine?

I do it the nasty way: I use the on screen keyboard you find in accessories.

You can open it also from start-->execute--> osk.exe

I bet there's an elegant solution but this works :)

damn.. but is that really better than just using task bar to switch between programs? –  Sonic Soul Nov 18 '10 at 17:29
    
I just use it in awkward and extreme remote controlling situations to send key combinations (not the classic alt+tab, in the end, even if it works):) –  Pitto Nov 23 '10 at 21:04
