Windows 7: Controlling iTunes with Keyboard Media buttons?

Controlling iTunes with Keyboard Media buttons?

I have a Microsoft Wireless keyboard with the media buttons and all that fun stuff. iTunes is my main music player, and I can use my Pause/Forward/Back/Stop Keys when iTunes is open, but not when its minimized..

Any ideas? I had one for my quicklaunch buttons on my laptop, but I don't think that would work with my desktop..

Thanks in advance.

Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 1000.

Scratch that, Fixed it. For the future, here's how.

The files called "mmkeys.dll".

All you do is go to "C:\Users\your_username\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iTunes Plug-ins" and move the mmkeys.dll file into the folder. Restart iTunes and your good to go.
