    With the improved engine can I get away with not having to use the RDCAutoTypeAndTCATO plugin now to send passwords to my MS RDP client (MSTSC) window?

    I'm not at my work computer where I typically use this every few minutes to test it myself. This application saves me hours being that my servers prompt for UAC authentication every time you open something.

    The new engine works in virtual machine windows so it may be good for RDP. You can test it by using the portable version of KeePass from a temporary directory.

    Thanks Paul.
    Works great it seems! One less plugin I need now. As expected you need to turn off
    Two-Channel Auto-Type Obfuscation.

    Just coming back to this. I can use the global Auto-Type shortcut when I have a full screen RDP window. This works because i have the Local Resources > Keybaord > Apply Windows key combinations > "On this computer" configured. However when I go to keypass and tell it to Perform Auto-Type it doesn't seem to work. If I drag my RDP connection down so it's in a Windowed mode and not full screen it works fine. "Two-channel auto-type obfuscation" is turned off for this entry in my database.
    Ideas?

    KeePass may have trouble returning the focus to the full screen window - it's an RDP thing. Try adding a few seconds delay.

    cheers, Paul
