hi all, i have this problem on two different computers running Windows 7 7201 (a notebook running x64 and a netbook running x32). even though i am able to install a second keyboard layout, the option to switch languages with a keyboard shortcut is disabled by default. i can go through the options and enable the left alt+shift shortcut, but as soon as i press ok or apply the shortcut setting resets back to "none".
for the original administrator everything works normaly, but when i tried to set the standard account as administrator temporarily, i still could not make the keyboard shortcut setting to work.
one workaround that i found on the netbook was to delete the standard account, setup the keyboard options for the administrator account, and select the option to copy these settings to any new accounts. after creating a new standard user everything works as it should, but it would be too much work creating a new account for my notebook and setting up everything from the begining.
i also tried finding a way to change the shortcut setting directly from the registry but i can't find any information about it either. so, anyone with more ideas?
