Hi,

You can try this:

Private Declare Function SetWindowsHookEx _ 
 Lib "user32" Alias "SetWindowsHookExA" ( _ 
 ByVal idHook As Long, _ 
 ByVal lpfn As Long, _ 
 ByVal hmod As Long, _ 
 ByVal dwThreadId As Long) As Long 
   
Private Declare Function CallNextHookEx Lib "user32" ( _ 
 ByVal hHook As Long, _ 
 ByVal nCode As Long, _ 
 ByVal wParam As Long, _ 
 ByVal lParam As Long) As Long 
 
Private Declare Function UnhookWindowsHookEx Lib "user32" ( _ 
 ByVal hHook As Long) As Long 
 
Private Declare Sub CopyMemory _ 
 Lib "kernel32" Alias "RtlMoveMemory" ( _ 
 pDest As Any, _ 
 pSource As Any, _ 
 ByVal cb As Long) 
 
Private Type KBDLLHOOKSTRUCT 
    vkCode As Long 
    scanCode As Long 
    flags As Long 
    time As Long 
    dwExtraInfo As Long 
End Type 
 
Private Const HC_ACTION = 0& 
Private Const WH_KEYBOARD_LL = 13& 
Private Const VK_LWIN = &H5B& 
Private Const VK_RWIN = &H5C& 
 
Private hKeyb As Long 
 
Private Function KeybCallback(ByVal Code As Long, ByVal wParam As Long, ByVal lParam As Long) As Long 
    Static udtHook As KBDLLHOOKSTRUCT 
     
    If (Code = HC_ACTION) Then 
        'Copy the keyboard data out of the lParam (which is a pointer) 
        Call CopyMemory(udtHook, ByVal lParam, Len(udtHook)) 
        Select Case udtHook.vkCode 
            Case VK_LWIN, VK_RWIN 
                KeybCallback = 1 
                Exit Function 
        End Select 
    End If 
    KeybCallback = CallNextHookEx(hKeyb, Code, wParam, lParam) 
End Function 
 
Public Sub HookKeyboard() 
    UnhookKeyboard 
    hKeyb = SetWindowsHookEx(WH_KEYBOARD_LL, AddressOf KeybCallback, App.hInstance, 0&) 
End Sub 
 
Public Sub UnhookKeyboard() 
    If hKeyb <> 0 Then 
        Call UnhookWindowsHookEx(hKeyb) 
        hKeyb = 0 
    End If 
End Sub
