I have started using a Microsoft Sidewinder X4 Keyboard. It came with the Microsoft IntelliType Pro software. Since I have installed the software I am not able to change my music via the play | previous | next buttons at the top of the keyboard. I use iTunes and not Windows Media Player.

How do I solve this issue?

Here is a screenshot of the Keyboard Properties:

Note: I am on Windows 8 using iTunes 11. Uninstalling the IntelliType software is not an option as I use the macros.

I was able to find an updated version of the software.

I also found one other option that assisted in solving this issue. It involved installing a custom program to fix the problem.

Solved by installing a little standalone .exe called MediaKeys.
