The dll is working great on a school computer running 2008a, when I take it to another computer running 2008b it cannot find it. This is the same code running from the same jump drive, does anyone have suggestions?

Excellent. Nice to be able to check for user input without implementing a full-blown gui.

Great job Fu-Sung Wang!!
Your code is pretty useful for me.
I've spent a lot of time looking for a function similar to "KBHit" for Matlab.

Very useful routine, partly running also on previous Matlab versions.
