[winapi] Transparent key remapping

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm thinking about implementing a custom keyboard layout application based on a system-wide keyboard hook which modifies the mapping of the keys or something similar. I am aware of Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator (MSKLC) and Portable Keyboard Layout (PKL), but the first one cannot provide advanced mappings and the second one doesn't have a user-friendly editor. I know how to use low-level keyboard hooks but I don't know how I can modify the intercepted keys in order to provide a custom keyboard layout that works just like a real windows layout without requiring administrator rights (something PKL manages well). I've tried looking at PKL's source (and the underlying AutoHotKey source) but it all seemed much more complex than what I hope it can be. So, any ideas on how can I transparently remap keys?
