Then I suggest the best answer is Shift + F12 (or whatever) works temporarily upon the next Alt + Tab or Shift + Alt + Tab. Just not simultaneous. One then the other. Shift + F12 then let go, then, Alt + Tab. If you click or hit some other key or move the mouse or return the window to focus, the effect of Shift + F12 goes away. Or maybe its effect just times out.



Or implement both methods.

Thanks for the suggestion. We'll take a look at it.

Hi John,

Yes, this is our next priority after the we release version 6.5. We are going to make a full-fledged exportable/importable address book in the mobile viewer, so that you could seamlessly sync it with your desktop Viewer.

BTW, I should update this thread. We had a remote session and found out that it was version mismatch between Viewer and Host. I.e. an older Viewer was used for configuration. Updating the Viewer to the most recent version fixed the problem.

A word of advice to anyone who uses MSI Configurator: before starting the configuration process please make sure that Viewer and Host are the same version, preferably the latest one.

Hello Stefan,

Can I say that this package terribly uninstalls it self?

If it were the case this forum would have been flooded with messages about package not uninstalling itself correctly. Besides, there is nothing special about the uninstaller - it's plain Microsoft MSI installer, we didn't invent the wheel.

If you have issues with installation/uninstallation on your PC, feel free to run this tool from Microsoft to fix these issues https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/mats/program_install_and_uninstall . I assume that it's because of those problems that you cannot run the MSI configuration properly on that PC.

Hello Stefan,

So you uninstalled the Host, removed the above-mentioned registry key, you are not having the Agent the running. Correct?

You run the Viewer as administrator, try the MSI configuration process - and you receive the error. Is that the case?

Hi John,

But having the Q be typed remotely is not ideal. So you first have to make sure the program that's in focus remotely does not respond to Q. So it's still a two step process. So, again, i think some special key to switch focus back to local windows (which is also an extra step) is cleaner, and an acceptable lack of convenience.

Yes, but the whole point is that the number of special keys is limited :) Besides, using a "mode-based" switch is cumbersome for users. They need to remember each time in what mode they are in (i.e. in "local swithing" or "remote switching" mode). That's why we use a modifier instead that works temporarily, i.e. when pressed.

That documentation you mention sounds very useful!

And we are going to expand it even more  :)  Namely, add more tutorial videos.

In order to entirely wipe the Host settings, you need to delete this key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/System/Remote Utilities/

Hello Stefan,

Thank you for your message.

so I clean my registry and restart

Could you elaborate on this? What specifically did you delete in your registry?

Alt+Tab and Windows+Tab to local PC?

I dont know what this means. We are talking about an alternative to Alt + Shift + Tab, right?

When in full control mode:

Hitting Alt + Tab or Shift + Alt + Tab cycles through the remote windows.

If you hit and hold Q, then do Alt+Tab - you cycle through the local windows.

I dont understand "Q as a modifier" at all.

There problem is that the number of modifiers is limited and they are used by the system. Windows doesn't have a special notion for "remote" and "local" windows, hence we need to invite ways to split the Alt + Tab behavior for these two categories.

P.S. We'll create a special section in our documentation where we'll list all available keyboard shortcuts.

John,

Did you try to use Q as the modifier? It should work.
