This has helped me:
It depends entirely on which keyboard layout tool you used. If you used Microsoft's Keyboard Layout Creator then you need to look for *.klc files. Since the process of creating or reloading new keyboard maps is not exactly intuitive, it pays to keep detailed notes for future reference. There is no point in re-inventing the wheel each time.


The new layouts get installed by means of an xxx_i386.msi (or _ia64, or _amd64) file, supported by xxx.dll. "xxx" is a name chosen by yourself.

so i searched for homemade layout.dll file and found it :-)

Thanks for help
