Using class SendKeys in a Service ?

Hi

I have made a service in C# from where I want to send different Keystroke
commands to the application in focus.

The service works fine but when I want to send fx. DOWN I use the following:
SendKeys.SendWait({"DOWN"})

I get an exception : "Unable to create hook"

Can anybody give me a hint how to solve this problem ?

Best regards,
Brian Brorsbøl
