Incorrect key mapping while using Swiss-German (QWERTZ) keyboard with Oracle Virtual Desktop Client For Mac OS X

(Doc ID 1466186.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 30, 2013

Applies to:

Oracle Virtual Desktop Client - Version 3.1 and later
Apple Mac OS X (Intel) (32-bit)


When using the Oracle Virtual Desktop Client (OVDC) version 3.1, the Keyboard mapping can fail with both Auto Detection and manual settings while using Swiss-German (QWERTZ) Keyboard.

Auto Detection would result in a 'QWERTY' setting, while even a manual selection to Swiss-German (Country Code 92 or 28) would make no effect.

However, choosing a US keyboard (Code 97), which would result in QWERTZ setting and special characters (such as slash, hyphen, etc.,) being mixed up.
