    Wonderfull, great works %100 with my A6V nb. Congratulations.

    I have a question. Can we add another key combination (not existing nb default combinations). For example FN+E or FN+Ctrl+E.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    I solved the problem with "Can't synchronize with existing ATK0100 event!"
    AsusNbKeys.exe waits for "ATK0100 AC EVENT" event in the process HControl.exe but can't find it. Asus for some time adds to that name a random number changing each time you boot. Thus it is necessary to restore the name of the event to the previous form to bring back AsusNbKeys.exe to work.

    Here's how to do that (Tested on Asus M51Ta, windows 7 x64):
    First step you can ignore.

    1. Uninstall current ATK Hotkey and install the latest drivers appropriate for your system.
    ATK Hotkey

    2. Terminate HControl.exe in task manager.
    Press Ctrl + Shift + Esc, switch to Processes tab, look for HControl.exe, click on the file and click the End Process button.

    3. Using your favorite hexadecimal editor open the C:\ Program Files (x86) \ ASUS \ ATK Hotkey \ HControl.exe file. I used XVI32

    4. Search for the string "ATK0100 AC EVENT"

    5. Get rid of " %d" from "ATK0100 AC EVENT %d"
    In the hex panel replace carefully "20 25 64" to "00 00 00"

    6. Save changes and reboot the system.

    That's all. Now Asus notebook keys should work fine.

    Regards

    Hey guys, I have a question..

    Is there any way to use this program for setting a hotkey to make iTunes skip song? Any way to set it to where it will work regardless what I'm doing on my computer?

    Thanks for great program!

    I don't understand why Asus don't make a change for this. My laptop is N61vg, And Play Pause button start the "Windows Media Center". I have the media center, i don't even use it ones.. I can understand if that button works in media player but media center.
    Whatever. I have a question. Can i make a backup for this? How can i?

    @sixfeetunder, you just have to backup the HControl.exe to some folder (might be in the same folder it is originally).

    NP, thanks for the tool, I just put it on my G73, works great with Windows 7 x64 with the workaround of konradb4, I needed those media playback buttons for Foobar2000 :)

    One question, why can't I disable the Ctlr+Alt+Shift modifiers when assigning a key ? I'm kinda used to Control + MM Play to work as Random-Play...

    I've followed the steps Konrad said to get it working on Windows 7 64bit, but whenever I run AsusNbKeys.exe now it says after 2 minutes that it can't find the HControl.exe process. I had to end that process to get this program working, but now it won't boot up again. I've just restarted and it still not running.

    I found it on my PC at C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\ATK Hotkey, but when I try to run it it says HControl.exe is not a valid Win32 application.

    How can I fix this problem?
