Lenovo Mini Wireless Keyboard N5901: Remap orange "My Computer" button

I have a Lenovo Mini Wireless Keyboard N5901 that I'm using with an HTPC running Windows 7.

 

The remote comes with an orange button in the top-left corner that by default, when pressed, opens the Windows "My Computer" window.  I would like to remap / reprogram this button to act like the green "Windows Media Center" button instead on a Windows Media Center (WMC) remote; that is, open Windows Media Center if it isn't already open, or go to the WMC homepage if WMC is already open.

 

I've tried several keyboard-remapping utilities including SharpKeys, Key Mapper, and KeyTweak, with no luck so far.  None of these utilities recognize the orange button.

 

I was able to use a utility called Keyboard Scan Code Generator to determine that a press of the orange button has a KeyData value of 16777217 (0x1000001), and a "Virtual Code" value of 182.  (The other "media" buttons on the N5901 have the same KeyData value, but different Virtual Code values).

 

Is there any way to accomplish this?

 

Thanks!
