Windows 7: Software to remap keyboard keys from scratch

Software to remap keyboard keys from scratch

Hi guys,

I have an old keyboard but I like it and I don't want to change it.

This is it: - Multimedia Keyboard KB-2100E

I want to remap the keys under the scroll to do something else.

They now have: Ctrl+X, Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V on them. I want to put another key combination to each one.

I tried hotkeyp but that only replaces ctrl+v ( the current combination in place ) etc with the new combination and I can't use ctrl+v anymore. I need those hotkeys to be available all the time, so to start and stop hotkeyp is not an option.

Any answer that could help me would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

LE: Those old drivers don't help me because they don't fully work on win 7.

Have you tried RandyRants: SharpKeys 2.1.1 ?

Yes, it does not know the keys I'm pressing. I've tried a bunch of softwares, but none of them are capable of replacing the command, they replace just the active command. That button has Ctrl+V and the software remaps the whole Ctrl+V, they don't replace it with another one. And this way I can't use Ctrl+V if I press on the keyboard.
