I have the back/forward buttons configured with the Microsoft keyboard software to go to previous / next songs in my music app.

If Visual Studio is the active window then the buttons don't do anything! Play/pause continues to work.

I have Visual Studio 2012 and the latest version of the keyboard software.

I went into VS keyboard mappings but can't see anything bound to the back/forward buttons.

Any ideas?
