You should probably use GetAsyncKeyState. GetKeyboardState will return different results based on how many Windows messages you have processed in your message pump, so it will change over time; what it returns is not necessarily the keys that are pressed right now. For that, you need to call GetAsyncKeyState.

See the MSDN documentation on both functions for details:
