Intellitype Pro 7.0 does not recognize media keys when using 3rd party programs

When using Intellitype Pro 7.0 the media keys on my Wireless Laser Keyboard 6000 no longer work like they did in version 6.31. Essentially when using the keys to play, pause or skip tracks they no longer work when the program you want to control is in the background. For iTunes the keys work if you have the window on top but if you're playing a game or using a browser and try to pause or skip a track that is currently playing nothing happens.  This bug exists in both Vista and Windows 7. Workaround in Vista is to just not use version 7.0 of the program but in Windows 7 it is the only compatible version.

Side note: Despite the program being correctly set to Wireless Laser Keyboard 6000 v2.0, the Devices and Printers window in Windows 7 says its a Wireless Laser Keyboard 5000. Also all of these issues existed in beta, RC and RTM versions of Windows 7 x64 and Vista Ultimate x64.

Go here, and follow the instructions to the letter.  Amazing that Microsoft can't find a solution to this!

I'd been struggling with Windows 7 x64, Multimedia Keyboard and Winamp for a while and had given up until today when I had some time to search around for solutions. I was about to try the 4 executables mentioned earlier in this thread, then saw the hotkeys and thought that seemed the more sensible solution.

Then, as I was about to set up the hotkeys in winamp I saw a tickbox (on the Global Hotkeys section in Winamp Preferences that says "Enable Default Multimedia Key Support". I tried it and it works fine, I can play, pause, skip and stop to my heart's content whether winamp is focused or not :)

why are you guys having trouble? did you not know theres a win7 setting in compat tab? if youve professional or better it WILL work Just set the settings properly and you’ll be fine. btw if youre having trouble after setting the compat tab.. then Check yur system for bugs with scans you might need maintenance instead of complaining about your board not working hk tunes will work as itype will with the compat settings set to win 7 and the control set to admin. you need to have admin privledges to do this. but its worth knowing. im running win 7 ultimate x 64 with no problems just for the sake of the GODS( and your Sanity) remember that some of those nice little cleanup programs will turn this feature off saying its irrelevent. gotta turn it back on, smack your cleaner upside the digital head and tell it to leave the keybinders alone.:) OH and make sure youve got all the visual studio c++ and all that good extras microsoft stuff installed and updated for max stability :) ever since MS released the win 7 SP 1 things haven’t quite been right i’ll admit .. but at least with the win 7 setting it actually DOES work. ive JUST fixed my own mediaboard problem and can change songs even with my mediaplayer minimized. which is what we all want right? keep in mind too your comp may need the framework installed for your comp to be able to XP with ease. Virtual pc software from ms does this nicely. so make sure youve got the extras installed. its nice we can play stuff right out of the box .. but we can make it even better by making sure all the good media support from things like visual studio and stuff llike that will help increase the stability. if youve got an infectiion you DON’T know about ( hey it happens to the best of us so don’t scream about being called a noob when thats not the case. anyone INCLUDING experts can run into nasties from time to time gods knows i have!!! i’m NO exception.) SO when those nasties hit symptoms include this very issue thats being chatted about here things that used to work may or may not . the comp appears to have gotten a mind of its own.. well THATS comp bugs for ya. it’ll make your system do really wierd ****, kick you off the net , explode a decompression bomb on your harddrive rendering it so full you can’t use it for anything but a paperweight yeah ive seen some right dillies out there. been hit too. rebuilt within a day after that. thats MY deal tho. i learned how to fix my own comp in self defence because i sure as **** don’t have the cash to toss around for rebuilds when i need ‘em **** at the time i type this i’m running my poor comp on three fans . my tower fan died a couple weeks ago and ve not been able to replace it because no money. i got the cpu fan , power supply fan and the graphics card fan running my comp atm. also had to repair my system from a dropper trojan id picked up a lil while ago too. so. before you guys say compatability settings are hopeless. i am here to say nope you might just have another bug preventing this from happening or your pc cleaner turned the media part of the keyboard off. either way make SURE you hit the compat settings,hit win7 ( use the select all users tab) run as admin, Hit apply , then execute itype or hktunes under run as admin. this should work. if it doesn’t scan your system for problems and check your pc cleaner to see if that nice little handy program isn’t screwing with the run settings of the program. i use advanced systemcare 4 for my pc and yeah it has a nasty little habit of shuttting that oart of my system down on me . LOL this is what i mean by handly lil cleaners that sometimes work against you. (certainly does in THIS case) Hope this helps. This has been tested on WMP and I-tunes and works fine. song change and everything even when the apps minimized you only need to do the Itype settings.make absolutely POSITIVELY sure that its running by checking taskmanager for the application. the rest should be fine.. USE THE WIN 7 SETTING ON ALL USERS COMPAT TAB! ( this is a MUST . after all its your entire system and not JUST your account your changing right?) Right click on itype .exe icon Properties CompatabilityChange settings for all users (---VERY IMPORTANT) select run as win 7 check run as admin apply close then hit right click run as admin. it MUST be the tab for change setings for all users . works beautifully( typed as i listen to some rockin tunes and change the songs with ease after doing exactly as had stated above )

Similar to others here, I have problems with Intellitype Pro 7.x for PS2 keyboards and the Play/Pause multimedia application keys.

All these keys work perfectly (play/pause, stop, back, forward, mute, volume up, volume down, launch internet browser, e-mail, search, etc..) without any additional keyboard software installed such as Intellitype Pro 7.x .

As soon as Microsoft Intellitype Pro 7.x is installed for PS2 keyboards, pressing the Play/Pause app key constantly loads Windows Media Player regardless of program focus or default Media Player program assignments in Default Programs/Program Access and Computer Defaults via Control Panel.

Unfortunately I am only able to use the expected functionality of Play/Pause in VLC Player if I leave Windows Media Player open in the background. As soon as I close Windows Media Player, the next time I press the Play/Pause app key will cause Windows Media Player to load again... This is most annoying.

For basic keyboard multimedia app key functionality and configuration without installing additional software (Intellitype Pro 7.x), there are a few very basic registry key settings for app key control here:

***

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\AppKey]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\AppKey\15]
"Association"="mailto"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\AppKey\16]
"Association"=".cda"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\AppKey\17]
"ShellExecute"="::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\AppKey\18]
"ShellExecute"="calc.exe"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\AppKey\7]
"Association"="http"

***

For now, I must use 3RVX 2.5 to get an on-screen volume display, using the basic windows functions of these keys as per the registry keys above.

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1. I've tried all suggestions here with no success using Intellitype Pro 7.x for PS2 keyboard. I must leave it uninstalled at this time.

Microsoft, we have a problem, and so do you.
