    Hi,

    so I have this BlueTooth-NumPad from LMP, but it doesn't do anything in Parallels at all..

    Keyboard and Mouse work normal, just as expected, but the LMP-Thing doesn't seem to get recognized as an input device by Parallels?

    If I connect BlueTooth to the Parallels-VM, the entire BlueTooth is in Parallels, so Keyboard and Mouse would stop working in Mac OS.

    Any ideas?

    Does it work as expected in OS X when Parallels isn't running?

    (Not a Parallels user, so I can't tell you what else to look for yet).

    Works fine when Parallels is running as well, but only in OS X. It doesn't do anything while the cursor is in the Virtual Machine.. Can't use it inside Windows

    Just curious, can you turn off the KB and get it to work?

    I wonder if Parallels only supports sharing one Keyboard device to the VM.

    Answer

    Push the key above the number 7 and then it works. Don't ask me why. It just does.

    This procedure also worked for me. Go figure!
    I pressed the "clear" key

    Thank you.
