I have this set up:

Shortcut properties window

However, pressing Ctrl+Shift+Q doesn't do anything. I have tested other shortcuts that lead to other files and no keyboard shortcut works.

What window is in focus when you throw down the key combination? The only guaranteed target is to have your desktop itself in-focus. If additional programs are in focus they may or may not capture the key combinations before they have a chance to bubble back down to the OS depending on the program. On another random tangent, have you tried Ctrl + Alt combinations? – bosco Aug 21 '13 at 21:30
I do it when no other windows are open. And yes, Ctrl + Alt combos don't work. – Frank Aug 21 '13 at 21:49
I tried making a shortcut to a .bat file that launched this application, it still doesn't work. I also tried having the bat file simply come up, say a phrase and wait for user input, but it wouldn't start with shortcuts. – Frank Aug 26 '13 at 17:39
