No characters with Alt Gr Key (like backslash ) can be selected in RDP session


Workaround: use Ctrl key together with Alt Gr


This is just a workaround, havent´t found the solution yet.

On Remotedesktop session with german keyboard, layout characters with Alt-Gr (for example: backslash) do not function. Use Strg-Alt Gr-<key> instead.
