If you are having trouble with "Alt Gr" key on Slovenian, German and some other keyboards in Virtual PC, be sure to change the "Host Key" in Settings to something other than "Right Alt" which is exactly "Alt Gr".

I have selected "Scroll Lock", but you could choose any other seldom used key.

Thanks so much! I downloaded Visual Studio "Orcas" CTP's VirtualPC Image and I had troubles to code, because I couldn't write {, } or \ characters.

I've changed "host key" to scroll lock and now altgr+ combinations works fine.

I even tested a different keyboard - so you can see how at the end of my patience i am getting.
I anyone's got any ideas, please share.
Thanks.

Instead of "Alt Gr+*" you can use "Ctrl+Alt+*" to write chars like @\}][...
