Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator, as the name says, enables the creation of keyboard layouts for Microsoft Windows and languages that Microsoft doesn't support. Using Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator, you can create your own custom keyboard layouts that can be accessed by simple keystrokes. It allows you to create keyboard layouts from scratch or you can create or edit a layout from an existing one. Multilingual input locales within edit control fields are also included in this version. You can easily change the fonts of the buttons and you can select from three different keyboard layouts. Tools for validating and testing the keyboard layout are also included. These tools test the keyboard layouts for errors. After you have edited your layout you can generate DLLs for x86, x64, and IA64 platforms. You can create an installation package of the layout for delivery and installation on other systems. This version works very well under Windows Vista and it allows you to use Vista's custom locales to provide new language names.
