Unhappy hotkey won't work unless tabbed into vent

Greetings,

My push-to-talk hotkey (glave) works when I am tabbed into Vent. It does NOT work when I am tabbed-into WoW, Finder, Safari, or any other app. Nothing happens when I click the hotkey when not tabbed into vent.

It worked fine last night, but not today. Nothing has changed on my computer between last night and this morning - no new installs, add ons, or anything like that.

I have deleted and reinstalled the app.

I have trashed the preferences in the /~user/Library/Preferences

Neither resolved this issue.

try this:

Exit Vent
Goto - System Preferences -> Universal Access -> Enable access for assistive devices (turn it on)
Then restart Ventrilo

Thank you for your reply, Prog-Rocker.

The "Enable access for assistive devices" checkbox was already checked.

I tried unchecking it, turning on vent and seeing if the problem was fixed (it wasn't). I then quit Vent, opened up Universal access, re-enabled assistive devices, closed system preferences, restarted Vent. Still broken. :-(

in vent setup/hotkey box, does it actually display 'Grave' ?

are you running any keymapping software?

any error messages in the vent log file?
