French keyboard mapping using Royal TSX

Since I’m using a Mac to connect to remote Windows servers, I get mapping issues with my french keyboard. I’ve tried various software and each time, the “@” keys outputs “²” and “-” keys turns into the “=” character. But I finally got the software / configuration couple that brings nearly normal use of the french keyboard from Mac to Windows using TSE.

Using Royal TSX 2.0.2, create a “Remote Desktop” object. Fill-in the hostname and credentials properties. Then go to the “Input” property and check the “Send key presses as Unicode”. That’s all!

There are still a few issues but those are easy to handle.
For example, “|” requires the “alt-6” combination, when “\” pops-up using “alt-8”. But no big deal.
