Bug: Sys Req Show Only Key Up

I'm trying to program the screen shot key in Diablo II, which is the print screen key. In macro list, I press and release the print screen key, but macro list only show Sys Req key up, there is no key down. I tried it several times. Don't know if it will still work. I'll try it in the game.

Great mystery ! Does it work in similar programs like mine ?

1) A precision : on my keyboard, the "print screen" key is also labelled "Syst". It seems to me normal that "Sys req" appears in your macro-list. By the way, in my macro list editor, the name of the key does not exist (French version of key names)
2) In the Macro list editor, I have exactly the same behavior with the print screen (only key up).
--> As it is a very special key, I think this behavior is normal

About the "print screen" key, it is possible that the key down state is "hooked" and intercepted by Vista...

Yah, I forgot to try screen shot last night. I'll try it today.

Well, in the case the "down" state is intercepted by Vista my software will never be able to "see" this down state, I should add a little button in the MacroList Editor,in order to "record" this particular key and make it work.

Another particular behavior in the Macro-List editor of a special key is the one of AltGr : CTRL and ALT are repeated in their down state very quicly. Try it ;)

So, if you need the Alt-Gr key in your Macro, use the standard CTRL+Alt combination ;)

Screen shot didn't work in Diablo II. Not sure how to get it to work . . .

Actually, it does work. When I installed your new version, the profile that Commander tried to load was your test profile, not my Diablo II profile. :-D
