Windows 7: Is there a way to make space button act as a shift

Is there a way to make space button act as a shift

The reason:
I write a lot of code with use of such symbols as

and i have to use shift all the time.

The problem:
After a while my hands feel some discomfort especially my tiny finger which i use to press shift.

So i was thinking if i can remap shift to space it could be a lot better. I know there is a lot of software that can do simple remap but then i have to press shift when i need to put a space. Doesn't make any sense.

What i am looking:
I way to make work space button like this:
If i just press down then immediately release space button it acts as usual space (ie. reacts on key up event)
but if i hold it and press another keys it acts as a shift button.

Does anyone know if it is even possible to do?

Microsoft has this download that will let you reassign your keys . I've never used it . I've given it to a couple of coders and they said it did the job .
