Hi Kim,

Which function?  Both?  They're both in the same user32.dll and have the same minimum Win2000 requirements, and no exceptions are indicated.

I have no experience with or access to Win server 16.  Maybe others on the list can say whether or not they've succeeded with Register / Call DLL in general in that environment.

I do see on the MS page documenting keybd_event that it says "Note  This function has been superseded. Use SendInput instead." so maybe Win server 16 doesn't support it.  That would be tough luck because you can't use Call DLL with structures as parameters like SendInput requires.  No indication that GetKeyState has been superseded.
