Using media Keys with iTunes Minimized

Hi guys, i have a problem. Ive written some code that works and chages iTunes's tracks, starts, stops, etc. But the form has to be in focus the whole time. I want it so that i can be for example typing in Word, then press the next key and it changes track. Here's my code:


Public Class Form1

    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        Process.Start("C:\Program Files\iTunes\iTunes.exe")
    End Sub
    Protected Overrides Function ProcessCmdKey(ByRef msg As System.Windows.Forms.Message, ByVal keyData As System.Windows.Forms.Keys) As Boolean
        Select Case keyData
            Case Keys.MediaPlayPause
                Process.Start("C:\Program Files\iTunes\Scripts\PlayPause.vbs")
            Case Keys.MediaStop
                Process.Start("C:\Program Files\iTunes\Scripts\Stop.vbs")
            Case Keys.MediaNextTrack
                Process.Start("C:\Program Files\iTunes\Scripts\Next.vbs")
            Case Keys.MediaPreviousTrack
                Process.Start("C:\Program Files\iTunes\Scripts\Previous.vbs")
            Case Keys.MediaStop
                Process.Start("C:\Program Files\iTunes\Scripts\Stop.vbs")
            Case Keys.VolumeUp
                Process.Start("C:\Program Files\iTunes\Scripts\VolumeUp.vbs")
            Case Keys.VolumeDown
                Process.Start("C:\Program Files\iTunes\Scripts\VolumeDown.vbs")
            Case Keys.VolumeMute
                Process.Start("C:\Program Files\iTunes\Scripts\VolumeMute.vbs")


        End Select

        Return MyBase.ProcessCmdKey(msg, keyData)
    End Function



End Class


I ideally want the form to be invisible but still accept the commands from the keys that i use.
Thanks very much!
