Hi Experts,

Private Declare Function BlockInput Lib "user32" Alias "BlockInput" (ByVal fBlock As Integer) As Integer

Private Sub DisableInput()
          BlockInput(1)
End Sub

In Windows 7 and Vista, you need to provide administrator privileges to use this function.

Try running the program as administrator and it should work.

Right Click-> Run as admin showing no difference. No password is asked, or nothing extra happened. Same result.
