Same results here. I have CS6 and i can't that feature to work for me either. I would be sooo grateful if this could get resolved! The other stuff seems to work, but the "alt menu blocker" does not work even if the box is checked.

Saw you wrote it works on CS6 but I keep getting an error message if I tick the box to map the color picker to ALT

I was searching a way to disable alt key menu freeze for a long time. Especially in Illustrator.

The annoying alt key behaviour is also disabled in Illustrator (tested CS5).
Man, many thanks!

Awesome program, but i have a little annoying problem.
I try to use it mostly for HUD color picker but when i press the appropriate hotkey it very often change to 'hand tool', which is pretty uncomfortable for work. I need to click few times around until HUD color is activate, but sometimes it opens my brush selection...  I use Wacom Intuos4, but i doubt this is the issue.

will be most thankful for some solution!

Nevertheless - awesome work! :)

Hello, first of all, thanks for making this tool, I'm glad you did.  
I'm curious if you could make a fix that would allow it to work better with the wacom express keys.  It looks like when you set them to tilda, the express keys don't hold down.   Where as modifiers like Alt or Shift are held down like they should.  If you make it so that you could make shift or alt be hotkeys in APassistant rather than just shift + something else.  I would really appreciate it,  Thanks!

I am having issues getting this to run for my CS3, I keep getting the error:

Error: Can't load icon. The current thead will exit.

Specifically: C:\Users\Drachorn\Desktop\Data\tray.ico

--> 075:Menu,Tray,Icon,%A_scriptdir%\Data\tray.ico,,1

Can you suggest a fix for this? 

Having autosave is a superb idea and I would love to utilize the feature

Maybe this file is deleted by mistake.
Try to re-extract it to another directory (not the desktop), and run.

That didnt seem to work either D: Sorry to bother you with this
