I am connecting from a Windows 7 workstation to a Server 2003 server, and it seems the "StickyKeys" dialogue box (on the server side) appears whenever Shift is pressed- even if it is just pressed once (and even then, very quickly). I'm not holding it down for a long time or anything. This issue is frustrating as it makes actually typing in the password to remotely connect challenging.
What I know so far:
- all our Windows 7 PCs in the office have this problem
- none of the Windows XP PCs have this issue. StickyKeys only appears when pressing Shift 5 times (as it should).
Interestingly enough: avoiding using full screen mode on the remote desktop session actually prevents this problem happening. If Remote Desktop session is any resolution other than "full screen" mode, it works fine.
Does anyone have any idea what is going on here? How I can fix it so we can continue to use full screen mode whenever we connect to the server from Windows 7 systems, without it launching StickyKeys the instant (either) Shift key is pressed? If it worked fine in XP, I'm sure there's a way to get it to work in Windows 7.
