The help says:

Because the SetKeyboardState function alters the input state of the calling thread and not the global input state of the system, an application cannot use SetKeyboardState to set the NUM LOCK, CAPS LOCK, or SCROLL LOCK indicator lights on the keyboard.

VB Declaration

Declare Function SetKeyboardState& Lib "user32" (lppbKeyState As Byte)
