Is an autokeys macro safe to use in a runtime app?

    I have an autokeys macro that does 2 things only.
    It disables CTL + any function key
    It disables SHIFT + any function key

    I am very aware of the problems of using macros with a rutime app.

    I have used this autokeys macro in my app and tested it starting the app
    with the runtime switch. I have not found any problems so far.

    Are there any MVP's or other seasoned developers who have successfully used
    such an autokeys macro with a runtime app? If not could you comment on any
    problems you encountered. The work around with keydown events on every form
    is a lot of work.

    Thanks Nugimac

    The worst problem with macros is that you can't trap and handle errors. That
    doesn't seem to be a problem with AutoKeys. I haven't used it in a runtime,
    but you are correct that the VBA code alternative is not desirable.

    Unless you get some feedback that concerns you, I'd suggest you go ahead and
    use AutoKeys.
