Every key of keyboard produces "?" in either Notepad or Write after the international setting is changed to Russian. Attempt to switch back to the default US-English fails because the ability to change the drive path "A:\" as prompted during the procedure becomes unavailable.


These KBDs are included to support Unicode applications and Unicode applications development. They can not be used with the retail version of Windows NT. There are several Unicode tools in the SDK. The SDK Unicode tools will automatically install the Unicode font, LucidaSansUnicode (L_10646.TTF). Customer Unicode applications may require that the customer first install this font, which is NOT installed by Windows NT setup.

To work around this problem, use the "last known good" setting by pressing the SPACEBAR. The previous default setting will work properly.
