    Hey, is there any way to disable the multimedia keys on my keyboard
    (play/pause, stop etc) effecting media player? This is as i use winamp and
    when i press play etc both programs react. I know with winamp you can turn
    off whether these keys effect winamp, but i've seen nothing in WMP. I run
    vista 64bit with WMP 11.

    Isn't this WinAMP not properly handling the keyboard presses, not returning
    the correct value back from WM_APPCOMMAND? What version of WinAMP? Are you
    running both apps at the same time... ?

    I'm using winamp 5.541. I'm not running both apps at the same time.
    It's weird though sometimes it works fine just with winamp, other times both
    apps go. It seems to be working ok now though.
    I'll just deal with it at the moment i think.
    Thanks for ur reply tho
