    Hello !

    Is it possible to change the keyboard configuration for parallels...
    i always mix up ctrl-c / ctrl-v in windows with apple-c / apple-v in macos.

    it would be very handy to have these keys exchanged in parallels.
    i also would like to set up the alt-gr on a key i like...

    is there an app in windows which can do that for me ?

    you could try the program remapkey from the "Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools" (works perfect in winXP) or keytweak (, that allows you to control even more keys in windows.
    I have used keytweak to map the "delete"-key to F12 and the "print screen"-key on F11 on my macbook pro and it works perfect. You could also swap the "control" and "apple" key in windows, but you may will experience some problems when you want to use "Ctrl+N", because "Apple+N" will open a new virtual machine in parallels, even if you run windows in fullscreen mode.
