Where is WindowsHookEx? lol like in the resources where do u define it, it said it can find it in KERNEL32

My goal is to create a Hook that'll read all keys from the keyboard, is their a better way to do it than what im trying? like....a thread or systemwide which one would be best


i tried

Code:
format PE GUI 4.0
entry start
include '%fasminc%\win32a.inc'
section '.data' data readable writeable
  mainhwnd dd ?
  hInstance dd ?
section '.code' code readable executable
  start:
  invoke SetWindowsHookEx,WH_KEYBOARD,NULL,hInstance,NULL

section '.idata' import data readable writeable

  library kernel,'KERNEL32.DLL',\
          user,'USER32.DLL'

  import kernel,\
         GetModuleHandle,'GetModuleHandleA',\
         ExitProcess,'ExitProcess',\
         SetWindowsHookEx,'SetWindowsHookEx'

  import user,\
         TranslateMessage,'TranslateMessage',\
         DispatchMessage,'DispatchMessageA',\
         PostQuitMessage,'PostQuitMessage'

SetWindowsHookEx is located in user32.dll. Sorry for the misinformation Very Happy

There are ansi and unicode versions of the SetWindowsHooKEx function. So the actual name should be SetWindowsHookExA or SetWindowsHookExW.

Ok i think i found what i want, I want a System-wide Remote hook.....I heard these are *notorious* for effecting System performance, so are there other types of hooks i could use to monitor *every* key entered.

Also...Since im using a Remote hook.....I have to create my own DLL for the filter function? Confused

and i use hInstance to refer to the DLL? how do i do that Crying or Very sad

It seems kind of confusing to me...... Very Happy

Thanks
