How to use regedit.exe to bind dead key to new key

I need the exact format of the binary data in the scan code map key to bind my R key to a new key. I've been trying and failing in regedit.exe to bind it myself, but each time I appear to disable the wrong key or do it out of order.

I know the hex codes for the keys, R is 13 and a useless key like, say, END key (no offense END fans) is 4F. How can I properly bind my dead R key to a key like END. Can I get it exactly? This was my guess in the ballpark (typing this from mobile because my laptop cant access wifi without R key) 00000000 00000000 03 000000 00001300 0013004F0000 00004F00 00000000

Need this tonight for my laptop. Thanks

Not how I do this.

I continue to map keys with SharpKeys. Now if one wanted to, they could set it up with sharpkeys then check the registry result for later.

And yes I could do more research on this and have over a decade ago but no more. I use tools rather than regedit and tables etc.

Windows 8.1 won't allow those programs

I've tried all of those free key binding programs. Name them, did em.

Regedit or a complete overhaul of my laptop keyboard are the two options for my laptop before tommorows trip I have. My only short term solution is a scan code map key.

That's news to me.

From memory version 3.8 (?) ran fine. Must be some other reason but here it did the deed.
