Note: I no longer have the laptop in question, so unfortunately I can't test the answers anymore. Thanks for your effort anyway. This was nearly 3 years ago, and now I feel like it's unfair to accept my own answer to my question which doesn't even provide an answer, so I deleted the answer.
I've got an ASUS K50AF series notebook with Windows 7 Home Premium x64. I'm using VLC media player, and I want to use media keys (play, pause, rewind, forward, stop) with it. Currently, it's associated with Windows Media Center.
I've tried MK2MP. Unfortunately, it didn't fix my problem, and crashed after restarting VLC media player.
Run time error 31
at line 559
Now, I can't even start MK2MP. Any ideas?
Update: I've disabled Media Center and Media Player. HIP now recognizes media keys, but the keys still don't do anything. :/
Update 2: It seems that when I try capturing that key, all programs (including HIP, Key Mapper and AutoHotkey) thinks I pressed the H key. Huh?
