This patch was needed for
Setup was Windows client connecting to a Windows VM.
Without this patch, when remote-viewer is focused and the user is
interacting with the VM, it was not possible to press the
Zenkaku_Hankaku in order to switch input method within the VM.

Are you saying this is not needed, and that the situation I describe is working
even without calling ImmDisableIME?
