I didn't say it was a Windows problem.  I suggested a workaround for
your VNC problem.  The fact that the workaround uses Emacs-specific
features should not be a problem as long as the solution should only
work in Emacs.

The section of the manual to which I pointed describes how to use
special Windows keys as substitutes for Control and Alt within Emacs.
If VNC does pass these special keys, then using the techniques
described in that section of the manual, specifically, customizing
w32-lwindow-modifier, w32-rwindow-modifier, and w32-apps-modifier,
might be the solution you are looking for.

I think they do know a solution.  I suggest to try it.
