Windows 7: Intellitype and Steam games

Intellitype and Steam games

Hello all.

I have recently purchased an Microsoft x6 gaming keyboard with many macro keys. the keyboard is great but you have to set up your games manually inside the Intrlitype (8.0) software.

everything works but i can not make the software detect my games that i own through steam. is there a trick I'm missing?

The keyboard works great in games but without the ability to set profiles for my steam games i can not use the extra macro features properly.

I am using an x64 version of the software and it works in the few none steam games that i own.

please help.

(windows 7 Home Prem X64 system)

The program files are c:\Program Files (x86)\Steam|steamapps\common... each game has it's own folder there.
