Why won't autoit detect keyboard input while I am in another application/focused?

The script works fine. The issue is that AUTOIT won't detect keyboard input while I am in another program with this script running. Why is that? Can you offer me a fix for this issue? Please?

Is it only one program that doesn't allow this, or every program? It works fine for me if I'm running any other program. It could be that the program has taken control of the keyboard input and is blocking the hotkey from working.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.
