Hotkey not working...

5 posts in this topic

Hello all...

I have a script that I have given to multiple people. I have one user out of them all that can not use the script's hotkey. The hotkey's work fine for all other users. I have changed the hotkey combination to a different combo for her a few times, none of them work...

My quesiton is, is there anything that a user could have set on their machine that would disable AutoIt's hotkeys???

Thanks in advance for any help,

JPC :)

Is it for a video game?

If the user has preset the key combination for another task, or if you are using the Windows key they could have disabled all WinKey Hotkeys by using the tweak described here.

Nope, this script automates some functions within a database. The hotkey combination works fine for all other users, just this one user can't get it to work.

Actually, the hotkey combination that I am using is Ctrl-Alt-F1. Seemed obscure enough to not run into problems. I have also attempted Ctrl-Alt-F2, Ctrl-Alt-F3 and Ctrl-Alt-F4 with this user...no luck!

The hotkey is vital in this script. It is the only way a user can abort the script as I used "Break(0)" to keep the users from fouling up the timing routine on the script. I have been trying to figure this one out for days...
