Searching the NG is a pain. Here is the template from that thread in case anyone needs it. Is it true this is happening again in C10?

#! Author: Marius van den Berg

#! Fixes the bug where the alt button hangs an application
#! If a window is open in an application in windows 7, the app will freeze up if the user presses alt
#! to access the file menu
#!
#! The problem occurs if the ALt/F10 was only pressed without any hot keys
#! So basically all the template does is, if only ALT was pressed when any windows
#! in the app are open I capture the KeyCode - event and do nothing
#!
#! If no windows are open however, the app will call the menupress manually.

Also, looks like this could do with some work. Perhaps someone has an updated version around?

Something similar is happening to me, but in the Clarion GUI. Annoying!

Yes it happening again. I did update the template a bit. I can post an update tomorrow.

This was discussed on ClarionLive just yesterday and they posted some code.

The ALT KEY LOCKUP bug is back, and shows itself with the latest version of Windows 10! We have two solutions:
Bruce wrote a template during the ClarionLive Open Webinar. This needs to be applied to every app in your solution, and is a good example of how to add code to every window using a template: Download UltimateWindowExample
Carl Barnes wrote a solution for this, and it was published in ClarionMag. Dave Harms has given permission for everyone to use it!! Thanks Dave!!! This is added to your AppFrame only: Download CBAltWin7Fix

I have put it into a gist as well. Now we have loads of copies spread around :smiley:
