keyboard issues

I am running VMware workstation 8.0.4-744019 on a laptop with RHEL 6.2. I am having keyboard layout problems since i upgraded to the latest version of vmware workstation 8.

I had to create a ~/.vmware/config to get certain keys to work:

xkeymap.language = "us101"

Everything works oke, except single and double quote.

I got the keycodes by using xmodmap -pk and xev.

And i added:

xkeymap.keycode.48 = 0xfe57

Restarted the vmware service, but still no single and double quote.

Who has idea how to fix this problem?

I changed my own keyboard layout on the host. Still the same issues.

I tryed all kinds of combinations, but it still won't work.

I just found the solution. I used the this table http://www.vmware.com/support/ws55/doc/ws_devices_keymap_vscan.html

to get the hexcode and xev to find the keycode.
