Hail Does anyone know how I process all keyboard messages in my Winproc? Even if my program isn't active I want it to react to the keydown messages. [edited by - leadorn on May 29, 2002 12:05:37 PM] [edited by - leadorn on May 29, 2002 12:06:58 PM]

I don''t think you will get WM_KEYDOWN messages in a WndProc if your app doesn''t have focus. You could try using DirectInput with a background cooperative level.

But why on earth do you need to capture the keyboard if the user isn''t using your app?

Using keyboard to start program. I don''t use explorer as a shell any more.


So I was planning on having a program to start them for me instead.
