Hello, I have tried the beta release and the stable release of this app, both x86/x64 and i have the same problem:

Win7 server (whistler) talking to Win7 Bootcamp client (snoqualmie) transmits mouse fine, but doesn't transmit keyboard at all. Has anyone else had this issue?

Debug 2 shows the following info:

I think I have a similar issue ... but in my case, server is on MacOS, client is Windows 7. Mouse is transfered across to windows client screen, but keyboard is not ...

I couldn't work out what I need to do to get keyboard input (from mac keyboard) to be transmitted to windows 7 client ...

I have the same set up Win 7 as a server and Win 7 on MacBookPro.

To fix,

on windows 7.. - control panel - clock, language, and region - change keyboards or other input methods - change keyboards... - add - add the "US" layout - done

thank you! After adding the US layout to the client Bootcamp Win7 machine and leaving the "Apple" keyboard installed ( couldn't remove it), I was able to type on my apple client from the host keyboard! Thanks!!!

I also have a Mac server and PC Client but adding US layout does not help. Mouse works but keyboard does not. Using PC as Server and Mac as client doesn't work at all. Sad times.
