Sharemouse and AHK: how to repeat Ctrl+W keypresses?

04 Feb 2020, 21:09

Sharemouse is a very expensive piece of software that help people use "local" mouse + keyboard on "remote" computers. Across two Windows 10 machines running exactly the same AutoHotKey script, on the "remote" computer, I cannot repeat Ctrl+W mappings when repeatedly pressing "w" key while holding Ctrl button down. This applies to all my other Ctrl+something mappings.

Code: Select all

^w:: Send ^+{Left}{BS}
^h::Send {BS}
Here is the log on the local machine, with key-sequence: F5, Hold down Ctrl, w, w, Lift Ctrl, F5.

This post mentioned a solution having to do with Hooks. I followed the solution and updated the AHK script on both machines of mine. Yet, nothing change: repeatedly pressing w while holding down Ctrl only execute the mapping upon the first keypress of W, and will send wwwwwww afterward. Disabling AHK script on the local machine does not help solve this problem.

Also, the following mid-mouse-click tweak for Thinkpad Trackpoint failed. It "blocks" the middle-mouse-click event on the "remote" machine. As discussed in its source, the script is meant for replicating Thinkpad Trackpoint's scrolling action while preserving the middle-click function. On the local machine, everything worked as intended. While disabling the local AHK script, the middle-mouse-click is activated properly on the remote machine. (Single middle-mouse-click events on the remote machine are blocked completely when AHK script is activated on the local machine, regardless of which keyboard/mouse I use. Single-click of MButton appears to do nothing at all through Sharemouse.)

Please advise how to proceed with getting AHK to work properly on the "remote" computer through Sharemouse. In particular, for Ctrl+W, it is working just fine outside of AHK ==> With multiple File Explorers opened, holding down Ctrl and pressing W multiple times does get all those Explorer windows closed one-by-one. Repeating W with Ctrl pressed down in the console emulators (ConEmu, wsltty, Windows Terminal (Preview)) is also working as intended ---- deleting words to the left one-by-one.
