Remap key?

My up arrow key is broken, I didn't keep it. And placing a new one in it's place doesn't seem to work.

How can I remap one of my useless keys to an up arrow key?

If you like you can "compile" the script as an exe so it will work on machines that don't have AutoHotKey installed. The hotkey sits in the task tray. To get rid of it you just click Exit from the Tray Icon Menu. Also you can use "#IfWinActive" directive so that the hotkey is only in effect when certain windows are active. But in your case you probably want it on all the time.

SharpKeys from that thread you linked me to did the trick.
