Problem with keyboard
Hello,

I have Windowx XP Home edition installed on my PC. My keyboard is defined as
French, which means AZERTY.

If I go to DOS through CMD.EXE, I notice that my keyboard doesn't match : it
is QWERTY.

Why is my keyboard OK in Windows (AZERTY) but it isn't OK in DOS (QWERTY) ?

Thanks.

If, and only if, you do not use a US-English keyboard layout you must
modify the Autoexec.nt file on your Vista system to that DOS
applications use the keyboard that you need.
Open autoexec.nt in c:\windows\system32\ + go to the foot of the file
and add this line (replacing xx with the two-letter abbreviation of your
keyboard layout, for example, uk or nl):

kb16 xx

OBS you might need to move the file to desktop and back to get edit rights.

Sorry, ik was bij het ingeven van mijn vraag even vergeten dat dit om een
Nederlandstalige nieuwsgroep ging.

Probleem opgelost.
