Hooks in WinNT4.0

Hi,

  Basically I want to write a screen capture program, and I need to check for any key that a user presses no matter which application he is in(so that I can check whether he has pressed the key combinations to activate the screen capture). I have used functions like SetWindowsHookEx(), CallNextHookEx() and so on, and the program works under windows 95. But in Windows NT 4.0, it doesn't seem to be able to detect the key stroke. Can anyone show me what to do? I am using Visual C++ 4.2.

Have you tried using a hot key? The hot key control does basically what you want without using a hook.
