Windows 7: Tablet PC - Need rotation shortcut

Tablet PC - Need rotation shortcut

I am using a home-made Windows 7 tablet PC. You can read about it here: [ [* m o t h d e s i g n s ] ]

My problem is, I have not yet fitted an accelerometer, and I am looking to make a taskbar shortcut icon that I can click to switch the screen between Portrait and landscape. I can do this currently by right clicking the desktop and choosing to rotate using the Intel driver, but this is undesirable.

Using the Windows 7 onscreen keyboard to send CTRL-ALT-Arrow keys does nothing. I need to find a way to makea shortcut that I can pin to the taskbar, which will switch between 180degrees (normal) and 270 degrees (portrait) with one click.

i don't know enough about scripting to know if this is possible. Can someone help?
