Keepass - quote signs ignored when using autotype to windows devices

JoM 2 years ago updated 2 years ago 2

Using Keepass (for pleasant password server) autotype function to passwords onto remote windows devices, we have noticed that any single or double quote marks contained in the passwords are not being passed through screenconnect to either the log on screen or to any application (notepad, internet explorer) running on the machine. 

Sending the same autotype password through windows remote desktop connection to the same machine works as expected, with no characters being dropped. It appears to affects all versions of Windows XP to Server 2016.

Example: a password of 1"2'3 when autotyped appears as 123

Tested with vanilla KeePass v2.42.1 (non-pleasant password server version)
