    My setup is that I am connecting from the current (just-downloaded, 4.129) Windows client to a Mac that is running the current (just-downloaded, 4.128) version as well. The Windows version is 8.1 Pro, and the Mac OS X version is 10.9.2.

    On the Mac, I am also running Parallels version 9.0.24217. It is running two VMs. One of them runs Windows 7 Professional SP1, and the other runs Ubuntu 13.10 (3.11.0-19-generic).

    Everything is 64-bit.

    Here’s the problem. When I connect to the Mac using NoMachine, and then use one of the VMs inside the NoMachine session, the keyboard in Ubuntu behaves as expected (although sometimes it gets “sticky” – like typing “888888…” instead of “8”).

    In the Windows VM, however, the shift key has no effect. So to get capital letters, I have to use CAP LOCK. And to get exclamation marks, question marks, parentheses, asterisks, curly brackets, etc? I have to type one in Mac OS X and PASTE it.

    That seems unintended. Can you help?

    Thanks,
    Chris Leonard

    Are you getting the same problem with the latest update, Chris? (4.2.21)

    I’ve got the latest NoMachine (5.x) installed on my Windows7 and OSX machines but I still can’t get SHIFT, WIN or CTRL keys working when accessing Parallels like this –> Windows > NoMachine > OSX > Parallels

    Keys work fine if I’m physically ON my OSX machine working with Parallels but not via the above.

    Versions of my software attached.

    Please advise! 🙁
