For the Win key, use w32-lwindow-modifier, for the Apps key use the
w32-apps-modifier.  You might need to use these to convert these keys
to something Emacs can use.

I have no idea, I didn't research the issue enough.  This page:


tells you how to disable the Windows shortcuts, in case you don't have
any use for them outside Emacs.  Perhaps then registering hotkeys will
work on Windows 7.
