Windows remote desktop and sticky keys

I am frquently doing Remote Desktop from a Windows computer to a Windows computer.

For obvious reasons then client keyboard is usually a Danish key board. Now if the client computer has both an Danish and an English keyboard installed then some keys appears as sticky and the AltGr sometimes works strangely.

It seems the problem is described at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/926934. Hence,

Configure Windows to stop applying keyboard shortcuts to Terminal Services sessions. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type mstsc.exe, and then click OK.
  2. In the Remote Desktop Connection dialog box, click Options, and then click the Local resources tab.
  3. In the Apply Windows key combinations list, click On the local computer.
  4. On the General tab, click Save As, type a name in the File name box, and then click Save.
solves the problem.
