Any coders -- need hook into Windows for custom key press
Does anybody know if one can code an application in Windows THAT RUNS IN THE BACKGROUND that does NOTHING except react to a specific key press - ideally I'd like some sort of EVENT to be created at event Windows key + (user custom key), then an ACTION can take place. Then I could say create a table which would launch a specific application or program. This could be quite flexible as I could create in the table a combination of Key presses and applications.
Something like this must exist already in Windows as certain key presses already produce specific actions.
I don't have much experience with this but it doesn't look as if the code would be very large.

In AutoIt it is really easy with the function HotKeySet. That is basically what I did with RunAtWinlogon which interprets hotkeys at the Windows login screen; RunAtWinlogon - reboot.pro although that's a bit too much as an example.
The file ServiceKick.au3 includes the functionality you ask about.
