For what it's worth, I regularly use VNC to access my work PC from home. I use an app called Mocha VNC, which over the years has improved its keyboard support, and I don't think I've had issues with Ztree. I also use that to RDP from my work PC to servers via VNC, and don't recall any issues.

(Mocha VNC, by the way, has two scrolling rows of all the special keys (control, page up/down, esc, etc). You can either scroll all the way to the right to access the keys you need, or rearrange their order so the ones you need are always visible. Thus I have quick access to F3, F4, F5, page up/down, ins, home, end useful for ztree. This is how MS should have designed their touch keyboard, instead of just leaving keys off.)

What RDP app are you using? It might be worth contacting the authors to see if they can help. It might also be possible to try third party keyboards to see if that makes any difference.
