Keyboard issue with TightVNC

johncunniff

Hello, Everybody,

 

I hope this e-mail finds you well. My friend and I use TightVNC version 2.7.0 for Windows, both are Windows 7 operating system. When I logged into my friend’s system to do a remote control to help my friend with Google Talk problem, and I cannot seem to get it to work. I logged on as my username & password in a “private Browsing” (Firefox). I’ve noticed I could not enter my password correctly. I tried holding down caps key and hit any letter. I discovered that I cannot get capitalized letter to show up. (My password contained caps sensitivity).  So, I went to my notepad and typed a note to my friend and she typed herself. Fine. I tried to type my own message like “Hello!” And wow, capital “H” showed up. Something really strange happening with TightVNC.

 

Does anyone have a problem with capitalization from the remote keyboard? Local keyboard is fine as long as my friend can type normally.

 

Let me know.

 

Thank you.

 

~Johnny J

Re: Keyboard issue with TightVNC

Default language and keyboard issue.
When logged in as user X the location settings (keyboard layout, language etc) belong to that user. Once you try and do anything with elevated permissions such that a little box jumps up and asks for the Administrator password, the location profile has now changed from the User X profile to the default profile. If the keyboard layout is different, like for example the difference between the UK keyboard layout and the USA keyboard layout, you may find you can't login. This depends on what characters are contained in your password.

We had this problem with initial logins and with freesshd logins, both of which use the default location settings, which by mistake were UK. The UK keyboard as the "@" character in a different spot than the USA keyboard so we could never login. Took us two months to figure this out.

You need to go to your language and keyboard settings and ensure that the default is the same as the user setting.

Good luck.
John

You need to go to the windows control panel, regional settings. Check there.

RE: Keyboard issue with TightVNC

Hello, John S., sorry for the late in reply, been busy.

Anyway, I checked both my work and home (via tightVNC) and both of them
showed that both keyboard settings showed Language: English (United States)
and the keyboard layout is US.

Now, I got your clear information. Thank you for giving me a clear
information. By the way, I am an administrator on both machines. No password
necessary.

I planned to check on my friend's system, unfortunately, I got tied up with
a trainer who came to my friend's home very late (because of her work
delayed as the Internet connectivity went down, that is why) so, I will
check on my friend's system the next time I can do. Oh well!!!

But, if it is an U.S. keyboard, the possibilities cause of this is because
my friend got a different kind of keyboard, which is called is "ZoomText
Keyboard" and it was sold for by a company in Vermont, USA, Ai Squared. I
think it can affect the settings for me to access remotely!

If this is the case, I have to go through to Support (Ai Squared) and get
the information them there.

~Johnny :)
