To create Shortcut Key for any specific application:

- Create a shortcut on the desktop for that application
- 'Your-Shortcut' --> Go to 'Properties' --> 'Shourtcut' --> Shortcut key --> Specify your key

Do you need an event to occur on key event "12" in the flash video? Sorry, I don't fully understand your question.

What scriptinglanquage do you plan to use on this html-page containing the flashmovie?
You are aware of the fact that the securitysettings of most browsers do not normally support this level of interaction with the visitors computer.

What function do you want to 'call' in the flashmovie? Isn't there another way to call it?

I need just an application which will be able to send any keystroke to any other selected application. Is that possible thing?
I'm not familiar with VBS unfortunately.

You can use AutoIT to script keystroke simulations.
