Hey all, a very persistent and irritating problem.
With my old install of Windows 7 ult (a few weeks ago) the media keys from my keyboard to iTunes worked just fine, and I could hit the keys to start/stop/change song whether or not iTunes was in focus. With the new install, they didn't work, and I tried 2 different work arounds. Now, they both have stopped working and it is driving me crazy...
Does anyone know how to get the media keys on a keyboard to work with iTunes when it is NOT is focus (works fine when it is).
