Key Chord not being passed to app

Hi,

I have a VSIX extension for Visual Studio 2017 (Community edition) that uses a set of bound key chords to activate the functions within it. I am running that on Windows 10 Pro, 1909, 64-bit.

A few days ago, for whatever reason, one of the key chords that I have bound to a function in my VSIX extension is not getting passed through. The function is bound to the chord SHIFT+ALT+CONTROL+D. I went to OPTIONS > PRESS SHORTCUT KEYS, and it did not react to the key chord when I pressed it (it did not show the function that is bound to it).

I have a WinForms app that reads the keys pressed on a textbox, via KeyEventArgs, and displays the status of the keyboard (whether or not control, alt, and/or shift is held down), along with the scan code for the key pressed. This is a link to the app:


It does not react. It does not give the code for SHIFT+ALT+CONTROL+D on my development system. I ran the app on a few of my other systems (all running Windows 10), and the chord does, indeed, trigger the proper reaction on those other systems by my WinForms app, and all is well on them. That being the case, I am assuming that the problem is not actually with Visual Studio 2017 itself, but something within Windows 10 - perhaps intercepting that particular key chord.

I have this issue posted to the Visual Studio forum. So far, I've not had any suggestions. I'm thinking that I am just as likely to get assistance in this forum as I would there.

How would I determine why that particular key chord is not being sent to my VSIX (or my app)?

My development system is running Windows 10 Pro, version 1909, build 18363.900, 64-bit.

Any assistance with this would be appreciated.
