Windows 8.1 U1 + Intelliremote - keypresses not working

Post by markm75 » Fri Feb 13, 2015 10:57 pm

I have the latest gphotoshow pro (registered).. and i've set it to exit on keypresses (IE: left/right arrows).. This was all working fine in the trial mode..

If i goto windows, screen savers, preview and test there, i press the remote arrow and the screen saver exits..

If i wait for it to launch automatically and then press the arrows on the remote i get no response (though the keypresses are registered in intelliremote).

Any thoughts as to what is going on here?

This is x64 Win 8.1 U1.

Thanks

I am not sure because I don't know how your remote works, anyway I guess the issue is caused by the way Win 8.1 runs screen savers, they are always started on a secured desktop and there is no way for a running app to send a message to the screen saver.
