    missing keyboard layout for new keyboard


    hi,
    I bought a N9Z-00003 all-in-one keyboard for my media center. I was rather surprised to see windows 8.1 doesnt have the layout.

    This is the french canada version of the keyboard, and the layout is this http://cdn.overclock.net/b/bd/540x18...an20French.png

    However, this layout is not advailable. the canadian multilingual and the french (canada) layout are different. Im stumped, and feel the pain of less computer savvy people buying that keyboard.

    downloaded and installed the driver, installed a language pack and still no added layout

    microsoft hardware, microsoft software ...

    If you want to go through the trouble and create the layout yourself, you can try this.

    I think that may be your only choice. Have you looked on the keyboard manufacturers website to see if they have the layout for download?

    Thank, exactly what i needed. Downloaded microsoft keyboard layout creator and started by loading an existing keyboard and modified. Works great now

    I have to say it's a LOT easier and faster to create the layout than trying to find and download this particular layout . It`s not a very common one.
