Over at ghacks they've found a cool looking hotkey program with one very nice feature that I know will appeal so some people -- you can get a quick visual representation of which keys you have mapped to each program.

Looks pretty cool.  Nice concept, clean execution.

But I'm holding out for this:

Unfortunately doesn't work on 64bit windows - I suspect it's the same type of problem that CircleDock had.

Want to me to debug it? It's C# so I should be able to get it working or see what's wrong.

Do you have access to a 64bit machine, though? I suspect it'll be as simple as setting the build type to x86 instead of "any", but I can't be arsed to play around with it myself right now :)

I don't have 64-bit Windows installed, but I can get it from MSDN. That would take me quite while to get everything up and running.

Also, I can't seem to download the source code from the CVS for qliner for some reason. It keeps saying the repository has been relocated temporarily. However, I took a browse through the online version of the code and it appears to be straightforward C# for the most part coupled with a Win32 C++ hook. Also, the C# .csproj files show that the executables weren't compiled to be 32-bit specific so it is highly like that qliner is having the same problem that Circle Dock has and you simple just have to add in the instruction to build as x86 into the .csproj files.

f0dder,
Forgive me for asking, but is that 64 bit XP or Vista.

Mouser ... Mouser ... A hotkeys app? Does that mean that this program is more powerful than that program you wrote? What was it now ... FARR?

I suspect that the answer will be "either".

This should be cool, but my goodness! The price...  :o $1600 for a keyboard!

BTW - where is Ralf? I miss his posts and his top 10 lists...

Qliner Hotkeys is a really sexy looking app but that's where its wow-factor ends. It's weak and inept when compared to AutoHotkey and to add insult to injury, it consumes far more resources. I still have it installed though, it lets me create a nice graphical representation of my shortcuts, I save a jpg screencap of the Qliner keyboard and configure an (Auto)hotkey to load it whenever I need to be reminded of a shortcut. Using the best of both worlds. ;)

also unfortunately didnt work well with european (continental) keyboards a year ago - (may have been updated since?? = No, unfortunately not...)

Both, I bet. The CircleDock issue manifested itself on my XP64 box, and I tried Qliner on my Vista64 laptop. Pretty much exactly the same issue - 32bit hook DLL and dotNET built for "any cpu" instead of targetting x86 (32bit). 64bit apps can't load 32bit DLLs.
