Windows 7: "Failure to register import hotkey....."

06 Mar 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium
"Failure to register import hotkey....."

Hello !
So I'm test-driving this program that I like a lot, but every time I fire it up it throws an error message, something to the effect of

"Failure to register import hotkey: Hotkey is already registered".

The hotkey the app is referencing is 'Windows key + V'.
So my question to this group is: Is there some solid little program out there that I could install then run which would tell me which of the 200 programs installed on this box happen to own that keystroke combination?
Thanks much for your time [:-{

Is this the very first time you have installed this software on your system?
Registry keys are unique and are never used by two different software provider.
I would run Ccleaner and do a registry clean and see what happens.

Let us know the outcome.
