Determining Which Keyboard Driver KEYB Loaded Last PSS ID Number: Q58401 Article last modified on 02-02-1993 PSS database name: O_MSDOS

3.31 4.00 4.01


The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft MS-DOS operating system versions 3.x, 4.00, and 4.01


Is there a method to determine which keyboard driver was last loaded by the KEYB command (for example, KEYB FR)?


There is no specific MS-DOS INT 21H function that reports which keyboard driver is currently in use by KEYB.COM. However, INT 21H, function 65H (Get extended country information) returns the country ID, code page number information, etc., which could be used to deduce which keyboard driver is in use. For complete details on this function call, please refer to either of the following books:

  1. “Advanced MS-DOS Programming,” 2nd edition, by Ray Duncan, Pages 470-474
  2. “The MS-DOS Encyclopedia,” Appendix A, Pages 1451-1454
