how to use ctrl+ brk in remote desktop

hi all,
I'm trying to take heavy weight thread dumps in one of the applications i work for.
I have admin rights for the server.
(though i login as user account)

ctrl+brk is failing and i tried using sendsignal.exe as well.
im getting the below error

D:\Deployments>SendSignal.exe 5712
Sending signal to process 5712...
Access denied; retrying with increased privileges.
CreateRemoteThread failed with 0x00000005.
StartRemoteThread failed with 0x00000005.
0x00000005 == Access is denied.

D:\Deployments>SendSignal.exe 5212
Sending signal to process 5212...

CreateRemoteThread failed with 0x00000008.
StartRemoteThread failed with 0x00000008.
0x00000008 == Not enough storage is available to process this command.

Re: how to use ctrl+ brk in remote desktop

I would suggest you to try it with the Auto Hot Key Script that will be the most effective in this case. so do look out for the same and i am sure that will be benefit. However here are some of the shortcuts that you need to look out for
alt and page up: These will Switch between programs from left to right.
alt+insert: arranges the program in order.
alt+del: displays windows menu
ctrl+alt+pause: Toggles between full screen and windowed mode

Re: how to use ctrl+ brk in remote desktop

I have been searching a way to send Ctrl+break from a macbook pro to a Windows computer with the help of RDP for MAC. When I am trying to use the default key assignment which is F3 option then it will not work and re-assigning the key will not work also. Can anyone tell me how to send a ctrl+break using the RDP client on a Mac. Thanks for any information in advance.

Re: how to use ctrl+ brk in remote desktop

You can try to access break the VBA code by executing this key "fn + Esc" without the quote marks. I was using Macbook Air with OSX 10.7 through a Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac version 2.1 and accessed this on Windows 7 running on a VMware. Hope this will surely help you out. Note that ctrl+alt+end will not work on macbook but the on-screen keyboard will also work.
