<ORIGINAL PROBLEM STATEMENT, 2011nov04>
With Windows 7, DOS 16-bit application does not enable to use alt-gr
(right alt) to type polish characters. Alt-gr works for other
applications, just for the Clipper application it doesn't. Any clues,
suggestions about the cause, fix etc would be appreciated !!!

Possible DLL (or other) choices are here:
Adding comp.lang.xharbour to distribution. The first one is to wrap
the initial code in:
.... followed by an appropriate RETURN statement.
Recommend you check one of these threads:
.... just click on "More options", then "View thread".
If someone lurking has similar threads for Harbour, please chime in.
