The two AltGr keys right next to the 0 are not working, the first one, the backslash is pretty handy... When I run On-Screen Keyboard (osk.exe) to reveal the keyboard it looks the same. It also presumes pressing AltGr and the key to the right of the 0 should produce a backslash... but nothing. So not with the On-Screen Keyboard and not with the keyboard.

All the rest of the keys, Shift, AltGr combinations work fine. The only way I can make it work is to switch to the US keyboard, start On-Screen Keyboard, click the slash and switch back to the Dutch keyboard (for every slash).

So I went through diverse keyboard setups but nothing. Is it something stupid?

Do other keys that require pressing AltGr work, or is it with every combination? Does it work when you press Ctrl+Alt instead of AltGr? – Daniel Beck Mar 26 '11 at 14:47
no Ctrl+Alt . All other keys work as stated. However... I read some more and I AM working on a remote desktop connection. I read an MSDN article that the top right keys are not available during an RDP session.... so.......... I only have my workaround by constantly switching... – edelwater Mar 26 '11 at 23:06
