I've got slightly lost in this thread (not helped, I'm
afraid Alex, by your habit of top-posting ;) ) but in
an effort to be helpful, can I suggest the following.
Instead of fiddling with pyHooks which are -- as Tim R
points out -- somewhat dark and messy, consider adapting
the following example instead:
This uses a straightforward Windows message loop to
provide to sort of global hotkeys I think you're after.
You might, for example, change the handle_win_f3
function to start a wmi instance (or use an existing
one) and then produce the output you were after.
