Hi

My intention is to control the keyboard and mouse event input on a number of computers
from one single one and therefore I want my application to send to a "local" application
on all the others computers wich keys and mouse events I want it to perform.

This mean that the local application have to add the keyboard and mouse events
to the operation systems internal buffers.

I dont want a hardware solution due to that 3 of the computers are standing
on an another floor.

The intention is to add keys and mouse events to the normal OS buffers so the current active application
receive the events without any modifications.

Is there a function calls like?

WIN_XP_Sys_Add_Event_To_keyboardBUTTON_A);
WIN_XP_Sys_Add_Event_To_keyboard(MOVE_UP);

or

Low_Level_keyboard_Interrupt_driver(BUTTON_A);
Low_Level_mouse_Interrupt_driver(MOVE_UP);

Take a look at SendInput function.
To move mouse pointer you can use SetCursorPos function.

However for Older systems like Win9x you may  simulate keyboard events using keybd_event() function and Mouse_Event() for Mouse :

SendInput : Not works on Win9x / ME.
