Hello, i just made this program to push the '5' button repeatedly when I hold the 'f12' button and this works just fine but i have a question! When I run this program while I'm playing super mario bros this program does not work!
I use the 5 button to jump and when i press the 'f12' button he doesn't jumps! I already tried to change the time of the function "Sleep();" to 1000,5000,100,500 but nothing worked.

So my question is: This kind of program doesn't work with other programs? Why?

#define WINVER 0x0500
#include <windows.h>
#include <stdio.h>

INPUT input[2];


       // Simulate a key press
       input[0].type = INPUT_KEYBOARD;
       input[0].ki.wVk = VK_NUMPAD5;
       input[0].ki.wScan = 0;
       input[0].ki.dwFlags = 0;
       input[0].ki.time = 0;
       input[0].ki.dwExtraInfo = 0;

       // Simulate a key release
       input[1].type = INPUT_KEYBOARD;
       input[1].ki.wVk = VK_NUMPAD5;
       input[1].ki.wScan = 0;
       input[1].ki.dwFlags = KEYEVENTF_KEYUP ;
       input[1].ki.time = 0;
       input[1].ki.dwExtraInfo = 0;

      while(1){
      if( GetAsyncKeyState(VK_F12))
      {
         SendInput(2, input, sizeof(INPUT));      
         Sleep(50);         
      }
      }
   }

It doesn't work with other programs because the other programs are not in the same address space as the one you posted. What you want to do is called injecting, here are a few google links for you to consider.
