Keyboard Layouts

Is there a program, for making an alternative keyboard layouts in Win 7?

P.S. I have found this, but don't know, if this works in Windows 7 (in Vista works).

Yes, the keyboard layout creator works for Windows 7. The same layout I created installs fine on XP, Vista and 7.

This problem I have solved manually. Only needs to edit with Notepad .klc file, saved by Keyboard Layout Creator, and in the end ther are rows

Code:
DESCRIPTIONS

0409	Layout1 Description

LANGUAGENAMES

0409	English (United States)

ENDKBD
The "Layout1 Description" needs to change with real name.

Make sure you install version 1.4 of MSKLC which is Vista/Windows 7 compatible, has some new features specific to those OSes and can generate x64 keyboard layout DLLs.

Am I the only one here who had trouble installing Microsoft's Keyboard Layout Creator in Windows 7? For me the installation program refuses to proceed, claiming that I need to download and install the .NET 2.0 framework.

I downloaded that, but it won't run, because .NET 2.0 is already a component of the Windows 7 OS, and configurable only through Control Panel's "Programs and Features" -> "Turn Windows Features On or Off"...

So I go there and see only Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1, which is already checked (plus the unchecked sub-entries Windows Communication Foundation HTTP Activation & Windows Communication Foundation non-HTTP Activation). I tried un-checking it, rebooting, re-checking it, and re-rebooting, but nothing has changed...

I've tried running the MSKLC setup program in various compatibility modes, as an administrator, and I've tried running compatibility troubleshooting on it and running in "ignore version check" mode. I've tried these same methods directly on the unpacked setup *.msi in its temp' folder.

But no matter what I get the same message every time:

Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator requires the .NET Framework.
Please install the .NET Framework from http://msdn.microsoft.com/downloads/...mpositedoc.xml and run this setup again.
Yes / No

And you guys mean to tell me that you all just happily installed this program without any complications at all? I'm jealous. I found two other people who share my trouble, but neither of them seems to've found any solution yet.

Any ideas? Thanks for any! Cheers.
