Programs that "block" AutoHotkey - Why is AHK not working?
Posted: 14 May 2016, 15:09
Not sure how useful this list will be but it seems that on a regular basis there are posts like "why does AHK not work (anymore)", after trial and error it is usually a variety of programs that block or interfere with AutoHotkey. Perhaps a maintaining a list will be helpful for people who search.
- All programs that have global hotkeys can interfere with AutoHotkey, so for example (anti-)keyboard loggers, clipboard tools etc.
- Anti-virus and anti-malware software (disable them temporarily and try again, if AutoHotkey works try white listing AutoHotkey)
- If they work everywhere except in your browser: Webroot or similar programs to protect the browser seem to be blocking AutoHotkey
- Don't work at all: Synergy, KeyScrammbler
