How can I prevent Windows from reacting to pressing the "Search" button, so only my NaturalPoint software reacts to this button press?
For years I've always mapped the "Search" button on Microsoft's keyboards to a function in NaturalPoint's SmartNav software, but in the last few weeks, holding the "Search" button also launches a Windows Explorer folder (to, you know, search).
Similarly, if I try to map any of the nearby "Web/Home" and "Mail" keys to my SmartNav function, each key will perform its Windows 7 function and activate the SmartNav function.
SmartNav still appears to remap some other keys as expected (these include ScrlLk, and several keys on my number pad -- /, * and 5).
I'm using Microsoft Natural Keyboard 4000 v1.0 on a fully Windows Updated Windows 7 Service Pack 1 with NaturalPoint USB Drivers x64 2.50.0000 and SmartNAV 3.20.037.
My guess is this worked with the initial disc-install of Windows 7 but started behaving badly once I ran Windows Update, and I didn't notice for a several weeks since I wasn't using my SmartNav during that period.
