Hi, I've currently implimented a system where as I use DirectX to report back the name of a key a user has pressed on his keyboard, this works fine on English XP and the runtimes running as English and the same for Russian using the Russian runtimes, I think the main bit here is the locale of DInput dll, is there anyway you can change/use both or anything to say have a Russian locale DirectX running on a English version of XP ? There's no language select when installing DirectX so I assume it takes whatever version of windows you have installed, and because you can change the keyboard locale this doesn't reflect in DirectX, so, is the only workaround for this it to have my own mappings table or is there a more elegant way ? Cheers.
