Not working after newest Win10 update


I've been using Sharpkeys on this laptop for over a year without issue, but the newest Windows 10 update wiped all my existing Sharpkey settings. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work now when I tried to re-enter the re-mapping after the update. I'm able to enter the information into Sharpkeys without a problem, but it doesn't have any effect besides disabling the normal use for the key without completing the re-map.

For example, if I want to remap fn+f10 to simply f10, after rewriting the registry with Sharpkey and restarting my computer, fn+f10 won't do anything anymore but neither will f10. It's almost as if it's halfway remapping the keys.

Any help or suggestions with this would be very helpful.

I'm having the same issue. I've been using Sharpkeys for about 3 months on my HP ProBook 4530s laptop without any problems. I just recently had 3 updates for Windows installed on 9/26 and ever since I can't get Sharpkeys to work properly. I can add new key mappings and click write to registry just like before but after I reboot it doesn't work. Also, I've checked around in the registry and it doesn't seem like it's actually writing to it.

Update for MS Windows (KB3176935)
Update for MS Windows (KB3176936)
Update for MS Windows (KB3176937)
Security Update for MS Windows (KB3193494)

Any help is appreciated!

Exactly the same problem. What's worse is that for me the remapped key was space. -.-

Guys I found a solution to my issue by installing a new software similar to SharpKeys called KeyTweak. It does exactly the same thing as SharpKeys hopefully it works for you as well :)
