VB's SendKeys does not work in minimzed Remote Desktop

I find a solution here to overcome the sendkeys problem on remote desktop machines, unfortunately that does not work.

I copied the vb programm to an W2003 server that is controlled by remote desktop.

It works so far the remote desktop is connected and the window is not minimized.
If I minimize the remote desktop window it immediately stops sending keys.

The attached code is from your website.

Many Thanks in advanced

Don't quite remember, but I think a minimized window can't accept key strokes. Restore the window first before sending using the SendKeys function
