Hi there,

I want to know if there is any hacks or something to force working keyboard shortcuts within autoit+winXP inside of virtualbox under ubuntu 12.04.

Run("C:Program FilesMozilla Firefoxfirefox.exe", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)
WinWaitActive("Mozilla Firefox Start Page - Mozilla Firefox", "")
    Sleep(3000)
Send("{LCTRL}n")
    Send('{LCTRL}l')
Sleep(3000)
Send("^l")
Sleep(3000)
Send("{LCTRL}" & "l")
Sleep(3000)
Send("mail.ru")

I got it... If someone want to use keyboard shortcuts, you have to send ("{ASC ...}". Only sending of ascii codes will help with shortcuts and with some symbols, like .(dot), because it's not possible to send it directly.

Example:

MouseClick("left", 406, 90, 1)
Send("mail")
Send("{ASC 46}")
Send("ru")
Send("{ENTER}")

It will open FF and open mail.ru page.

I just tried and

Send("{LCTRL}n")
works fine.

I was wrong about shortcuts. Still not working. I can't send "Ctrl l", for example. But I will use mouse instead.
