Default Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 and Winamp

Hi all,

after searching the web I didn't found any tricks or tipps to control winamp via the ergonomic 4000. As you may know, there is a special button to start and pause playing of winamp, but not one to skip to next or previous track, like the natural multimedia keyboard has them.

So I wrote two vb-scripts that query for the pid of the running winamp.exe and then send a "b" or "z" to the window that contains winamp. Voila :-)

For all other people out there, I have attached those files. Happy listening.
