You'll get upper case if you set the VK_SHIFT as well.

>>>> which is not string1

but?

how do I fix this?



string string1 = "VK_RETURN";

BYTE vk = LOBYTE(::MapVirtualKey( string1, 0));
keybd_event( string1,vk,0,0);
keybd_event( string1,vk,KEYEVENTF_KEYUP,0);

You could try

void output ( string string1 )
{
      int size = string1.size();

      for (int i = 0; i < size; ++i)
      {
         char c = string1[i];   // the char
         unsigned short scan = VkKeyScan(c);  // the scan code for c
         unsigned char  vk  = (scan & 0xff);   // == LOBYTE(scan)
         unsigned char  sac = scan >> 8;      // == HIBYTE(scan)
         unsigned char  mvk = (unsigned char)MapVirtualKey(c, 0);
         if (sac & 1)   // shift must be pressed additionally
               keybd_event(VK_SHIFT, (unsigned char)MapVirtualKey(VK_SHIFT,0), 0, 0);

         keybd_event(vk, mvk, 0, 0);
         keybd_event(vk, mvk, KEYEVENTF_KEYUP, 0);

         if (sac & 1)   // shift must be released
               keybd_event(VK_SHIFT, (unsigned char)MapVirtualKey(VK_SHIFT,0), KEYEVENTF_KEYUP, 0);

      }
     
}

Note:

     (sac & 2)   would indicate the CTRL key was pressed additionally
     (sac & 4)   would indicate the ALT key was pressed additionally
