Mousekeys (numpad control of mouse) not working on remote machine

I am trying to use mwb to use the numeric keyboard on my local PC to control the mouse on the remote Pc (using MouseKeys). Local PC is Windows 10 desktop (anniversary update). Remote is Windows 8.1 tablet in desktop mode. I have disabled mousekeys on the local PC (so that windows does not interact with the keystrokes on the local machine) and enabled it on the remote PC. Mousekeys works fine on the remote PC when I attach a keyboard.


I'm not having any luck in getting it working. Has anyone any suggestions?


Thanks

Rob

You would want to enable mouse keys in the controller machine instead which would send the mouse move events to the remote machine.
