41A4998 Enhanced Performance USB Keyboard button customizer

2011-08-18, 7:07 AM

I've got a 41A4998 Enhanced Performance USB Keyboard hooked up to my Windows 7 x64 PC. I installed the driver and it's running peachy. However, I've had a couple of nags on the key customization:

 

1) While I'm able to customize the "application keys", sometimes when I associate them with certain external programs (i.e. explorer.exe, thunderbird.exe), pressing the key will load the correct application but Windows' "Default Beep" sound will be played. I'm thinking the keyboard seems to think the application couldn't be launched, while it in deed did launch. Can I disable this sound from playing when I push the button?

 

2) The Play/Pause key only works correctly while Windows Media Player is loaded. When it isn't, it will trigger Windows' AutoPlay feature instead. Can I change this behavior, so it acts as a proper Play/Pause button for use in WinAmp (i.e. non-Media Player) for example?

 

3) Can I override the media button, and have it launch an other media player instead?

 

4) Can I override the blue ThinkVantage button on the keyboard? As-is it loads System Information, I'd like to run Services or Device Manager or something.

 

Thanks in advance!

I now 'solved' this by having Windows 7's mixer mute the sound of the Skd881x Daemon. Which I actually wanted to kill instead, but it seems to pop up every time I do so anyway...
