RDP backslash fix for an Apple UK keyboard

A few days back, in my post about typing # on an Apple UK keyboard, I commented that I can’t type a backslash (\) on an RDP session to a Windows server from my Mac.

An anonymous contact very kindly tipped me off about Ira Rainey’s backslasher system tray application which Carl Slater has mirrored on his site (alongside a very nice VW Camper and motocrossing Honda C90s!). It works fantastically on my Windows Server 2003 SP1 system using the Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac v1.0.3 and Mac OS X 10.4.8.
