System-wide keyboard hook does not hook the console window?

Hi there! I am installing a system-wide keyboard hook. I got it to work, but
it is failing to get keyboard events from Consoe windows. Surfin' the web I
found threads on this issue, but none with a solution (or a workaround). I
found an article in the MSDN (Article ID : 108232
URL: http://www.yqcomputer.com/ ;en-us;108232) Titled
'How To Hook Console Applications and the Desktop', however, it explained why
you CAN'T hook console (I might be missing something because of the language,
my natural language is spanish). The point is that I have seen programs
hooking on console windows, so what's the trick? what's the workaround?
please tell me. x_x <-- really worried boy
