Repeat keys stop working on Virtual PC RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running Virtual PC 2007 (6.0) on a Windows XP host. My virtual boxes are all Windows Server 2003. Every so often, my repeat keys stop working. For example, normally in windows if you hold down any key (space bar, x, whatever) for half a second the key starts repeating. In ALL of my virtual boxes, the repeat key doesn't work. Restarting a single virtual instance doesn't help. The only thing that seems to work is rebooting the host, which is a real pain as I am running Domain Controllers, etc. on all the virtual boxes.

    Is there a fix out there for this? Google was not my friend on this issue.

    UPDATE: I rebooted the host machine over the weekend and the repeat key works again. This is not a viable solution.
