Is it possible to configure either iTunes or my keyboard to communicate clearly with eachother when I press my pause/play button on my keyboard? My keyboard does control Windows Media Player, but not iTunes. Is this an interface issue that can be remedied?

I'm using the Dynex (DX-WKBD) keyboard.

Andrew Hill apparently wrote a couple of small programs to deal with this problem.

I did not find anything else that seems confirmed to work. – Stefan Thyberg Aug 17 '09 at 11:44

I keep seeing mention of mmkeys.dll (see but I haven't been able to find any info on the author so I don't know how to confirm if it also does anything nefarious (like key logging).
