    Gotcha!

    What you wanted is to send keystrokes from your PowerMate to activate MWI but a keyboard hook will work on real keypress signals because this is the order:
    Keyboard -> Driver -> (Hook) -> Windows Messeage -> App

    As you can't generate a real keypress signal with PowerMate, this won't work. And yes, if you need a real keyboard for doing this, then there's no point of using MWI.
    Maybe that's the reason I named it MouseWheelInput

    Ok now Sally, be a good girl and eat what's on the table

    lol,
    ok, so im gonna just forget about the powermate, i keep trying to find a justification to actually buying the damn thing as i cant for the life of me find any reason to use it for anything as it so limited. Freaking glowing hockey puck is all it seems good for.

    Well, with the latest PowerMate driver it's supposed to act as a HIDevice. In this mode it's completely supported by MWI (you don't need any keystrokes whatever).

    For some reason the driver sometimes won't appear under HID (see posts above) and therefore MWI can't access it.
    Maybe a support request at Griffin clears some things up.

    Sneaky Peeky ;)

    A long time ago I've made an application called AppControl.NET, which never really has seen daylight (nevertheless it has 1 fan ).
    This app was invented to control other applications by using either messages, keystrokes or Windows (to start or stop apps).
    Now I've decided to combine MWI and AppControl. What I've got is an application that makes it easy to control your CarPC with only one PowerMate / WheelMouse while driving (see screenshot).

    If you wanna give it a try, let me know. It's not ready for download yet.

    You mean you can control everything with your mouse wheel and its button?
    I'm really interested in this. I want to give it a try!

    Yes, every application that receives either messages or keystrokes.

    I'll make it available tomorrow coz I have to write down a few words on how to configure it (the is no ConfigApp right now, but it's very easy).
