Ok I am running the trial of parallels (and going to try it on trial of fusion), I am mainly running autodesk software. As the delete key on my mbp is actually the backspace key on a windows computer, the vm sees delete as backspace, no real big BUT... In autocad, I use the delete key quite often to erase (rather than typing e then enter). I have tried to use windows keymapping programs within the installation to remap either my right or enter key to a delete key, keymapper says it is mapped, but it isn't Any ideas on how to get parallels to change the key? Would i have to change it from osx? Any thoughts are greatly appreciated. I have also wondered if I installed bootcamp (don't really want to if I can avoid it) and changed the windows keyboard mapping in that partition if it would carry over to parallels running from the bootcamp install? Also as an aside... in vmware fusion, i canot change any settings, is this due to me having a trial license?
