RE: WMP + MS Keyboard = problem with media keys
I have same problem. Vista Ultimate 64bit, Quad Core, WMP 11, Wireless Laser
Desktop 6000 (keyboard v.2), IntelliTypePro - button Play/Pause is working,
only if WMP 11 window is focused, also is working, if is focused IE7, BUT IT
IS NOT WORKING, when is focused a window of other software (and also the
button is not working if is focused Windows Explorer window)... It seems to
me as a system problem, IntelliTypePro problem or driver problem. I have not
installed any other software for cooperating with keyboard, I have installed
only latest IntelliTypePro for Vista 64bit.
Hope somebody from Microsoft will try to find a solution. Thank you in
