I wrote a little macro to test the new GUi function.

i use a hotkey to acticate the GUI function and it works nice on my computer with Win2000

then i compiled the macro and gave it to a friend to test it.

but the hotkey doest work on his computer running WinXP.

i gave the macro then to some other ppl too and always the same..

W2K = all ok

WinXP = hotkey doesnt work

why does the macro.exe works perfect on w2k but doesnt work on winxp ??

It should work the same. I have a script that uses many hotkeys.

The script works the same on Win2k as on WinXP.

Show us your script and we'll take a look.

i think it depens on how W2K or WinXP is able to use keyboard hook

i try to make a messenger and the hotkey activate a gui to write/read messages to/from other ppl while you are ingame

on Win2k the hotkey works ingame, on WinXP it doesnt.

if the WinXP user switch with ALT-TAB out of the game to a folder or txt file the hotkey works, back into game it doesnt

Im not talking about game macros like bots or anything else...

im talking about ingame messenger like XFIRE

i wonder why a hotkey works in a game running on W2K but not in the same game running on WinXP

What hotkey did you use?

Windows XP has a few more system-reserved hotkeys that 2000 doesn't:

Win+L (lock workstation)

Win+B (select first tray icon)

You might check the return value of HotKeySet. For example:

If Not HotKeySet("^+h", "someFunction") Then
   MsgBox(4096,"Error", "Could not assign Ctrl+Shift+H hotkey...")
EndIf

Edit: Oh, if it's a game then keyboard hook is probably the issue like you said.
