how to stop multimedia keys from launching windows media p..

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.configuration_manage,microsoft.public.windowsxp.general,microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support (More info?)

hello all, i have a vpr matrix 200a5 laptop. it has multimedia keys
that seem to work fine in most media players, except that the
play/pause button always launches the windows media player even if the
other players still respond to the button. i am totally comfortable
with the registry and am assuming the fix lies in there somewhere -
does anyone know what i have to do to keep the windows media player
from launching everytime i press the play/pause button?

(sorry for the cross post, been looking for the answer for days!)

    Open whatever keyboard program that's on your machine and adjust the
    settings there.
