[wix-users] Overwriting ALT hotkeys

The thing is, I'm using one of the standard WiX dialog sets, WixUI_InstallDir, and for some reason in the MaintenanceTypeDlg in my French installer, Réparer (Repair) and Précédent (Back) both have Alt+P as a hotkey. If you press Alt+P, Précédent wins over Réparer and you can't chose Réparer using a hotkey.

Does anyone see the same problem? Is it a bug in WiX? I'm using version 3.10.

Subject: Overwriting ALT hotkeys


One of the dialog has a button and a checkbox sharing the same in my French installer. The dialog is a custom dialog but the texts are using WiX standard (Text="!(loc.WixUIBack)" and Text="!(loc.LicenseAgreementDlgDescription)" in this case) and Wix seem to automatically assign hotkeys.

It would be nice to resolve this problem but I don't know how to overwrite hotkeys. Does anyone know?

Thank you,
