I have had recently had a couple of enquires from people having issues with setting multiple keyboard locales.
When setting the “KeyboardLocale” value using a Lite Touch new computer deployment any settings specified in the CustomSettings.ini are being ignored.
To solve this problem, update the KeyboardLocale line in the ZTIGather.xml file to set allow overwrites to true.
<property id=”KeyboardLocale” type=”string” overwrite=”true” description=”Locale used for Keyboard, can be either 0409:00000409 or en-US format (default is OS Default)” />
You then need to make sure that you skip the locale selection screen, otherwise it will override any values specified in the customsettings.ini. Here is an example of the rules you will need to skip this screen:
SkipLocaleSelection = YES
UserLocale = en-NZ
SystemLocale = en-NZ
UIlanguage = en-US
KeyboardLocale = 0413:00020409;0413:00000409;0409:00020409;0409:00000409;1409:00001409
When making this change you need to be aware of its effects. This will cause the last value gathered during rule processing to be the one used. So for example if you specify a KeyboardLacale in the database and it is also specified in the Default section then the last section processed will win(normally the first section will win), which usually means the values in the default section will win.
