LAST VERSION - 2.5
19-Dec-10

The program is designed to visualize in the style of Mac OS X events such as changing the sound volume on your computer, click "Lock" keys, open and close CD tray, etc. iKey is fully written in AutoIt 3.3.0.0 and not using any third-party libraries and COM objects except for installer, which is writen using the Inno Setup 5.2.2. If you have any suggestions or any questions relating to this program, please tell me.

Note that you are using Windows Vista or later, you must install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package to program work properly.

Looks cool but none of the settings are being saved to my registry. Only the path to the program is in the registry.

You work under the account Administrator?

Yes I'm in the admin group, but not Administrator. For some reason the permissions did not propagate to the key. Added full permissions to my account and all is well now. I'm using Windows 7 so it might be some type of quirk. Still might be a good idea to move the settings to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER hive. That way individual users can have their own settings, but that's just a thought. Great work!

Replace the following registry entry.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\iKey

Drive = E: F: G: etc


Set a hot key on the second drive?

Drive - E = CRTL+ALT+NUM1
How set hot key for the Drive - F = ?

Hi, GalielO. I added in version 2.1 support for more than one CD-ROM device. All devices managed by a single hot key. It works as follows.

- Sets in GUI the queue of your CD-ROM devices, such as D;E;F, etc.
- Specify the hot key.
- Now, in order to open/close the tray you want CD-ROM, press required number of times the hot key.

Example.

Queue = D;E;F

1 times pressing hotkey - open/close D
2 times pressing hotkey - open/close E
3 times pressing hotkey - open/close F
4 times pressing hotkey - nothing
etc.

Also you can adjust by GUI the sensitivity (timeout to next key press) button.

:o

If you just want a hot key for the second CD-ROM drive then do the following.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\iKey

UserApp = "C:\Program Files\iKey\CDToggle.exe" F (for drive F, quotes should be present)
vkUser = 1634 (code for "CTRL-ALT-NUM2", 0x0662)

If you want to replace the pop-up picture, please copy the resource 419 to 462 (iKey.exe) by any resource editor.

:D

Very nice program! :D

I'm having a slight problem with it though, It isn't in sync with my computer's audio. When I hit the increase/decrease volume buttons on my computer, the mac-like speaker symbol shows up, and it shows the volume changing and the "bup" sound's volume changes, however my computer's volume doesn't change at all. (I'm using Windows 7 7068 x86, if that info helps) What do you think the problem could be?

Сompression level of Inno Setup is higher than in the Windows ZIP-archive.

Don`t work.

Working with sound in Windows Vista/7 is different from Windows XP. When will the final release of Windows 7, I will add support for it. Support for Vista will not do.

@Yashied:

Great program, now I can enjoy a bit of apple style on my PC! :D

Is it possible to use the caps lock as mute shortcut? I wasn't possible to
set it through iKey but as you detect the caps lock event I guess it should
be possible.

Thanks,

aboy
