in reply to Win32::Setupsup::Sendkeys - Is this a bug ?

My guess is that this is how the module works, as it seems to be a "simple" wrapper around the Windows keyboard state API calls. Note that Windows itself and many applications were not built to be remotely driven by sending keystrokes, and be in for some interesting surprises when dealing with Windows 9x.

I have a programm that sends keys to a Windows 9x DOS box, and if you're not really going native and talk to the keyboard driver, it's not happening under Windows 9x. Under NT, all is nice and shiny though, see my homepage if you need to deal with DOS boxes under Windows 9x.
