Keydown/Keyhit don't detect Print Screen!

Running this code:

While Not KeyHit(1)
  For f=1 To 255
      If KeyHit(f) Then Print "you pressed key: " + f

Every key I hit on the keyboard display a scancode... except for Prt Sc/SysRq!

Tested both on XP Home and 98, neither prints anything when I hit Print Screen.

Doesn't work here either.
In the command reference->Scancodes dir, sysReq came up as having a scancode of 183.

Maybe it's because it's a Windows key?
Can you get to that key in any other language?

If there's no way to get it, then why give it a scancode?
That seems more counterintuitive than usual. :-)
