I remapped my wheel mouse for Windows Media Player. The remap works unless I change to full screen mode. Then AutoHotkey does not recognize it as the active window, and the remaps don't work.

How to fix this?

F8 and F9 will modify the volume, and will work in fullscreen mode as well. I'd map your mouse wheel to send those keys instead.

It is mapped to F8 and F9 for Windows Media Player, but it only works when it recognizes that Windows Media Player is the active window. – Phenom Dec 29 '09 at 15:50
You can use controlsend to send it to the WMP window if it exists: – John T Dec 29 '09 at 16:27
