Invalid/Stuck Key Input

This post was originally published on this site



My current machine is a Mac which I use to connect to a remote desktop (WIN10) and then use VM Workstation to access a VM (WIN10). Currently I am experiencing an issue where my alpha keystrokes don’t register an input. While most numeric return an incorrect, often “stuck” response. Some examples include,


Input       Response


   1  ->  “nnnnnnnnnn”

   2  -> “mmmmmmmm”

   3  -> “,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,”

   4  -> “…………………”



I experience this functionality with both a USB keyboard and the macbook’s keyboard.

This seems to only be a problem inside of Workstation. Both the hosting VM and Mac OS type as expected.


Any help is greatly appreciated.
