Mac UK International Keyboard Layout for Windows

This layout is designed for Windows to work with the Mac UK International Keyboard. Apples options key is bound to Ctrl + Alt.

Install

Basic layout functions

Run setup.exe from the bin dir.

Print screen and Pause/Break keys

Without any further treatment the print screen key is located at F14 (instead of F13) and the Pause/Break key at F15 (instead of F14). Fix this create the following registry entry:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout]
"Scancode Map"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,03,00,00,00,37,e0,64,00,1d,e1,46,00,\
00,00,00,00

It will reassign the key codes (written in little endian format) to the correct keys.

Multimedia keys

Currently I was only able to got three multimedia keys working: Rewind, Play/Pause and Fast Forward. Therefore I had to install Apples Bootcamp drivers. Especially WindowsSupport\Drivers\Apple\AppleKeyboardInstaller.exe (or rather WindowsSupport\Drivers\Apple\x64\AppleKeyboardInstaller64.exe. If successful the multimedia functions will be the default assignment and the F# keys can be reached by pressing Fn + F#. To change that set the following registry entries to zero (0x00):

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\KeyMagic\OSXFnBehavior
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\KeyMagic\OSXFnBehavior
