Which "Window button"?
Are you talking about the "windows" key on the keyboard?

Sounds like your client OS is intercepting those key events, I'm not

Perhaps you can remap the keys that you need in vmware instead?
If not, please create a ticket with sufficient details for me to
reproduce, preferably using simple applications rather than vmware..
