    the number are working correct.

    On a windows keyboard you will find the "@" symbel on key number "2" and you can selected by using Alt Gr + 2.

    But on my macbook the @ symbel is located left ( next ) to number 1 on the keyboard.

    This key has the icon @ and #.
    But when i hit it, i get < and with shift i get >

    thanks,

    What country's keyboard layout does your Mac have? What keyboard is set in the Windows language control panel?

    Dutch ( belgium )
    is selected
    when i select us english in the tasbar, then i got the @ sing when it hit shfit + 2
    but then the keybord is qwerty, and here in belgium we use azerty :-s

    I found out that when i use clr + alt + 2 i get the @ symbol.
    So ctl + alt on mackeyboard running xp is the same as Alt gr on a windows keyboard.
    Now i need to found a way to change the keyboard key zo when i press the key with the @ syumbol on my mackeyboard, i also get the @ symbol on my screen.

    You could try using the French keyboard layout provided by Apple (with the Bootcamp drivers).
