Yes. The problem is, that when you want to capure events that are not related to your application's window, the hook proc must reside in a DLL, as system-wide hooks are simply mapped into the other processes' addres spaces. Additionally, when calling 'SetWindowsHookEx()', you'll have to set the thread id to '0' and provide the DLL's instance handle (obtained via 'LoadLibrary()'). If you need an example, feel free to ask and i'll mail it to you.

No way, at least under Windows XP + SVP2 WH_MOUSE won't go global, you must use WH_MOUSE_LL instead.
