Hotkeyp for vista 64, cant run spy.exe

Post by And 1 » Tue Aug 11, 2009 9:01 pm

I moved from XP pro, to vista 64. Sadly none of my shortcuts work anymore. So I figure I can just run the spy.exe to get the new explorer ID #'s, or something.

Any ideas? THANKS!

Which shortcuts don't work exactly, for example?

I don't have any problem with HotkeyP on Windows XP and Vista 32 bit.

Perhaps spy.exe needs admin rights, try to run hotkeyp.exe and spy.exe as administrator.

The commands that no longer work are the "sort by" and "view as..." keys. I have 15 different ones and the rest work.

I tried to run spy as admin, but it doesnt work.

"C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe" is the working directory in vista 64. I've also tried to type in the other syswow64 directory. I've ran hotkeyp as admin too.

"sort by" and "view as..." key
Do you mean the multimedia keys - or "sort by" and "view as..." in explorer window??

You could try to contact the author of HotkeyP, but it looks he's too busy. :(
