Thread: Changing the key combination to invoke SI

    Changing the key combination to invoke SI

    Is there a way to change the default Ctrl-D keystroke for invoking SoftIce? Because that combination seems to create odd problems with the mouse in Windows XP (I know those problems aren't just mine. Hail to the search function! :P).

    DriverStudio 3.1
    Windows XP (no sp1 or sp2)


    edit: never mind! I found the answer at this thread:

    edit2: The answer isn't very well written on that link, so I'll restate the answer:
    In your Winice.dat file (sometimes in C:\windows, it's in C:\windows\system32\drivers for me), in the line that looks like INIT=, before the "X;" part of it, put in "altkey alt i" and a semicolon. So, my new INIT string looks like this:
    INIT="altkey alt i; X;"
    You can replace the "alt i" part with any combination you want, of course, so long as it's either a Ctrl or Alt combination.

    An old faq I remember goes as follows:

    Q. I'm a PhotoShop/<other application> user & SoftICE's Ctrl+D hotkey is incredibly annoying / inconvenient, is there any way to change it?.
    A. You did of course read the SoftICE Command Reference, in particular the ALTKEY command. Place it in your initialization string for added convenience.

    And not you have personally experienced the value of searching before one asks a question and, hopefully, might impress that point on other readers. You have also posted some information which might help others with similiar issues, so, alltogether, not a wasted effort.
