I had a customer report this one - the right Alt - "Alt Gr" acts as the ctrl key.

i.e I am testing for getrawkeystate(17) and if the Alt Gr key is pressed, it is returning true.

I've changed the code to test for getrawkeystate(17) and not GetRawKeyState(262) to get around this.

Is it meant to fire in this situation? I wasn't expecting it to.

I think it's because 'AltGr' is the same as 'Ctrl+Alt'. You can also test this by opening an editor and pressing 'Ctrl+Alt+Q' then the '@' character should appear. Provided your '@' character is on 'Q'.
