Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator problem

Hi I have a US keyboard on my laptop and have used MKLC to add a uk pound sign as that is the only change I wanted to make with the layout. It has saved the custom layout in my documents. It is supposed to be automatically added to the list of options in control panel keyboard options but it isn't there. I have searched online but can't find any instructions for this software that I can understand. If anyone can give me any ides what I'm doing wrong I'd be grateful.

Also a second issue with the keyboard is the ' and " on the first key depression nothing happens then on the second you get 2 of the characters, ie. '' and "" so everytime you need to type it you have to backspace one, which is a bit tedious. Is there an easy remedy for this please? Thanks.
