Please ONLY bid for this project when you have experience with Windows driver development and can deliver within four weeks.

We need code that allows us to record *all* keystrokes on a system. The code needs to have the following features:

1. Log keystrokes for all applications, even when they disable windows hooks (for example the DOS box or the Windows NT/2000/XP login screen). This means the keylogger must be developped and installed as keyboard driver.

2. Log all special keys: For example, translate the RETURN key to [RET] and the ALT key to [ALT]

3. Handle (at least) all Western languages, for example the German "ä, ü, ö"

4. Communicate the keystroke information to a normal windows application, for example by sending window messages to this application. This application is used to control the keylogger (start / stop) and writes the logged data to a file. If the controlling app is not running, the keylogger should buffer all recorded keystrokes.

5. It must run on Win 98/ME and NT/2000/XP. This probably requires two different keyboard drivers.

6. If required, the project must include the code necessary for an automatic installation.

7. The project needs to be done in Visual C++ V6 or V7 and must not rely on the .NET runtime.

Suggestion: A good starting point for the NT based keylogger could be the "Ctrl2Cap" application at

When bidding for this project, please let me know what driver development experience you have and how much time you need for this project.

1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.

2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.

3) Complete ownership and distribution copyrights to all work purchased.

Win 98/ME/NT/2000/XP

Must be 100% finished and received by buyer on:
Dec 15, 2002 EDT
Deadline legal notes: All times are expressed in the time zone of the site EDT (UT - 5). If the buyer omitted a time, then the deadline is 11:59:59 PM EDT on the indicated date.

I have made 2 keyboard driver based on Ctrl2Cap and Microsoft SDK samples.

Also I have big experience with other low-level Window's techniques.

You are right I have to make 2 versions for you (Win98/Me and WinNt/2000/XP)

If you are interesting I can send you a small prototype.

Also I am not sure about all purposes of you Keylogger but I can implement some
ideas like providing auto correction tool, dairy and so on.

About time estimation - I think I can finish development in one week + some days for initial communication and final testing.
