I've never had this issue with any other computer running tPUCapture. But this one has always had this issue. Fresh cop[ies of Windows, first time I ever try to start TPUCapture it usually error's and says "Could not register hot key for full screen capture". There has been a few times when it let me start the program, but pushing Print Screen would give me this error, the only way I would be able to succesfully use the program was to rebind the hotkey, because Print Screen was just constant error's. As it sits right now though I can't even launch it.

Any ideas here?

(running it as Admin doesn't help either)
