    After initiating remote access vie LogMeIn between 2 Macs, I start WinXP under Parallels 5 on the remote machine.
    Everything I type in the VM appears in lowercase, while doing the same on a Mac app behaves normally.
    Shift and Shift Lock seem to be disabled on the VM.

    Environment:
    2 iMacs
    LogMeIn (logmein.com) accessed thru Safari, from Mac to Mac
    Parallels 5 Build 9344
    VM: WinXP Pro SP3, german

    Yeah, its been like this for a long time. A workaround I use is the native on-screen keyboard in Windows.

    I have this same problem with Parallels Desktop 7 and LogMeIn. Has anyone at Parallels even looked into this? Does VMWare's Fusion have this same problem?
