another mac to Windows gotcha

Trying my first little LC app on Windows. I wrote an app on osx 
and am now trying to get it to work in a Win7 machine.

On the mac app, I use ctrl-J, ctrl-K, and ctrl-L to control the 
video player. JKL is pretty standard video player control in 
video editing software.

On the mac app, the card script 'listens' for controlkeydown, and 
if the other key is J K or L, sends the appropriate go, stop, 
reverse command to the player.

Have just discovered controlkeydown is not available on windows. 
Is there an equivalent? What would the windows guy and gals here use?
