Swiss German Keyboard - Backslash

    Hi there,

    I'm using a Microsoft Natural Keyboard with the Swiss German Keyboard layout connected to my MacBook pro. While the text on the keys is somewhat off (the keyboard is designed for windows), it works perfectly.

    Unfortunately, I'm unable to enter a backslash or > or < when using parallels running windows XP.

    I checked all the keys and when I compare it with my mac OS keyboard in bootcamp, I find that the backslash (we swiss have >, < and \ on the same key in windows) is on Ctrl-Alt-§ - the key just above the tab key on the Natural Keyboard. The key labeled with '< > \' works as § in Windows inside Parallels.

    Unfortunately, that particular key does not send a keycode in Parallels. When I'm pressing that key, nothing happens.

    I'm a progammer. I need my >-Key! And the \ aswell :)

    Can I somehow tweak the input event translation parallels does? Can I do anything to help you debug this?
