Windows NT does not provide keyboard support in the MS-DOS sub-system for:
Albania Ukrainia Belarussia Slovenia Estonia Latvia Lithuania Serbia (Cyrillic) Polish (Regular keyboard, the Polish Programmers keyboard is supported)To add support for these keyboards, you must acquire MS-DOS files to replace Keyboard.sys and a full-screen font to replace Ega.cpi. The Estonian keyboards file can be found at ftp://ftp.itedu.ee/microsoft/windows9x/windows_95/updates/addest11.exe
The Estonian full-screen font is Ega3.cpi and is available with the Pan European version of Windows 95. The following table gives you the font file names for other countries:
Country Font File File Name ------------------------------------------ Albania Ega.cpi Third-party Ukrainia Ega3.cpi Keybrd3.sys Belarussia Ega3.cpi Keybrd3.sys Slovenia Ega.cpi Keybrd2.sys Estonia Ega3.cpi See ftp site above Latvia Ega3.cpi Third-party Lithuania Ega3.cpi Third-party Serbia (Cyrillic) Ega3.cpi Keybrd2.sys Polish (Regular) Ega.cpi Keyboard.sysOnce you located the required files: ( Don't ask me where to find them, If I knew, I would have listed the location.)
1. Use Regedt32 to locate your keyboard at
The Estonian keyboard is 00000425.
2. Locate the above at:
Replace us with the two-letter code for your keyboard (in the keyboard description documentation).
Estonia is ee.
3. In Control Panel / Regional Settings / Regional Settings tab, make sure your country is set as the system default.
If you set it now, do NOT reboot.
4. In Control Panel / Keyboard / General tab, make sure your keyboard is selected
and on the Input Locale tab, it is the default.
5. Rename %systemroot%\system32\Keyboard.sys to Keyboard.old.
6. Use Mv.exe - Posix or an alternate boot of NT to rename
%systemroot%\system32\Ega.cpi to EGA.CPI.SAVE. If using Mv.exe:
MV /x /d EGA.CPI EGA.CPI.SAVE
7. Place the new CPI file in the %systemroot%\system32 folder:
MV /x /d EGA3.CPI EGA.CPI
NOTE: You can skip step 6 and 7 if you don't need full-screen support for MS-DOS on an Intel platform.
Be sure to use a True Type font for the display as trhe bitmap font doesn't contain the characters you need.
