Do you actually have a keyboard with a right [Alt] key or do you have a 
keyboard that has instead an [AltGr]?
I suspect the later and in that case, there is nothing you can do, as 
that is a key that does not produce the scan code for the [Alt] key but 
instead is a special "'Gr'aphics" key to type certain characters which 
are not part of the keyboard layout 

Beside that, the scan codes for for the two [Alt] keys are (somewhat) 
different, with 00h 38h for the left [Alt] key and E0h 38h for the right 
[Alt] key.
