I use a french azerty keyboard, so the letter é has its own key. However the keyboard has plenty of 'dead' key to do accent, from ~ (which requires alt + control or altgr to do) + letter or ^/¨ (which has its own key with both ¨ and ^) + letter or ` (requires alt + control or altgr) + letter.

Everything is working fine for me on win7 pro 64 bits,
