I spend about half my time on my MacBook inside a Windows 7 boot camp virtual machine, which is remoted into work. This has worked great for me with one caveat. ALT+TAB. I would say about half the time I press these keys (or ALT+ anything for that matter), I end up getting the non-ALT keystroke sent to my desktop at work. Since I spend most of my time in Visual Studio at work, this means that I am constantly adding TAB characters to my source code, which if it is checked in to TFS, means that Visual Studio automatically checks it out for edit. WHen this happens, I have to stop my workflow and Undo the checkin. Annoying! Today I was fed up and did a quick search on the intertubes and found this forum post: http://communities.vmware.com/message/1431435
This is most likely caused by the keyboard shortcuts in Fusion. Try disabling ‘Hide Other Applications’ in Fusion Preferences > Keyboard & Mouse > Fusion Shortcuts.
Works like a charm! I love Fusion!
