SendInput() Always Returns "0"

Tim
Hello All,

I am writing a program that checks for the NumLock status and turns the NumLock on if it is off.
I'm not sure what I'm overlooking at this point, but the code will compile and run, but the SendInput call always returns "0".
Here is some of the code:

Beginning of Code...

[DllImport("user32.dll")]
static extern uint SendInput(uint nInputs, ref INPUT [] pInputs, int cbSize);

[StructLayout(LayoutKind.Explicit)]
public struct INPUT
{
[FieldOffset(0)] public int type;
[FieldOffset(4)] public KEYBDINPUT ki;
}
public struct KEYBDINPUT
{
public short wVk;
public short wScan;
public int dwFlags;
public int time;
public IntPtr dwExtraInfo;
}

....Code Deleted...

INPUT [] input = new INPUT [1];
input[0].ki.wVk = 0x90;
input[0].type = 0x01;
uint result;
result = SendInput(1, ref input, input.Length);

....End of Code

result will always equal "0". Does anyone know what would cause this, or even better, how to get this to work? I'm at a complete loss.

Thank you in advance for your help,
-Tim
