Although I run VMWare Fusion on my personal Macbook, I found myself at
the end of a budget year without the funds to buy Fusion for the work
Macbook (by design, it’s all by design). SO, I spent the hour it took to
setup a Macbook with 160gig hard drive, 2 gigs RAM with Mac OS X and
Windows running off of Bootcamp.
The install went great by the 3rd time I did it <grin>, and everything
loaded without problems. I soon had Windows humming along the way I like
it with my favorite applications. However, one thing was driving me
crazy…how to remap the Apple-Command key to be the Control (CTRL) key.
To do that, I used Key
Tweak, a free program that describes itself in this way:
Keytweak is a free keyboard remapper for Windows NT/2000/XP. It makes
use of Microsoft’s Scancode Map registry key to remap your keyboard. VB6
Runtime files are required, but are already present on Windows 2000/XP.
I used the Half Teach feature to scan a single key. You basically choose
scan a single key then press the Apple-Command key on your Macbook
keyboard, and voila! You can then choose a destination key to map to.
Pretty nice solution!
