I need to emulate a keystroke for another app that uses DirectInput. But since GetDeviceState takes the current actual keyboard settings, I cannot just send it a WM_KEYDOWN message or even use keybd_event(). I know that I could do this by hooking GetDeviceState, but I really would like to do this without a hook. Any ideas?
