A colleague has asked me to develop a program which he could launch thanks to a keyboard shortcut, do something quick and then close automatically (for instance: put a string of characters in the clipboard). I have made such a program thanks to AutoIt, created an .exe file, placed it safely somewhere on my computer, created a shortcut to that EXE, opened the properties and created a custom shortcut for it (for instance CTRL + ALT + <). On my computer, it does work, it launches the program, puts my string in my clipboard and then closes. I have tried the same manipulation on my colleague's PC and it does not work. No customized shortcuts work at all. I tried on Firefox shortcut, to put for instance CTRL + ALT + F , but it does not work neither (and that one works on my PC too).
So the question is: what kind of settings could make custom keyboard shortcuts not work on one PC and work on another. Does anyone know or have any idea?
thanks a lot.
