Already tried it, the isSupportedxxx method returns false so seems I cannot use it (Windows Vista??). I really don't care about platform independency right now, I'll worry when I have it working. Btw they should have told somewhere that they use Apache Commons Logging, I spent like 40' figuring it out and making it work...

It's kinda high priority to my app to be able to focus it with a hotkey because it's like a Console that eases up common tasks and the idea is that you don't need to use the mouse...

Thanks in advance.

Is this following on from another thread? Didn't make any sense to me I'm afraid

yes they use commons logging..... did you checked the sample program ...they included its pretty straight forward...

http://melloware.com/products/jintellitype/xref-test/com/melloware/JIntellitypeTester.html

isSupportedxxx method returns false


and when you download and unzip the jintellitype you will find JIntellitype.dll along with the jintellitype.jar

3. Installation
------------

FOR USERS:
-> Copy the following files into your classpath
-> jintellitype.jar
-> JIntellitype.dll (or put in Windows/System32)

Thanks for the reply guys.

To #2: Nope No other thread. I need an alternate framework to JIntellitype which allows me to register a global hotkey in a Java Application (Windows-only ok for now, cross-platform would be ideal), as long as there is one...

To #3: Ok this is the method that returns false in my app: JIntellitype.isJIntellitypeSupported(). According to the source in the example you refer to, it means either I'm not on Windows OS (I can be in Vista or XP so not likely) or DLL is not being loaded ok. Is it enough that my dll is in the root directory of the project, or system32, for it to load correctly? Cause I tried both and it doesn't work on Vista. I've tried the exact example from the site on XP and it works.
