Re: keyboard switching and persistence

Sorry, Delphi seems not to be the right tool to search the MSDN :-( I'll better use an ordinary browser for searching the MSDN. Now I'll start playing around with the kbswitch implementation. Unfortunately it's not always clear which messages are sent to that window, and what's the correct action to...

Re: keyboard switching and persistence

Correction: the desktop setting does *not* affect the language of subsequently started programs (WinXP). I'm not sure of the internals yet. How kbswitch is notified of task (active process) switches and how it determines the setting of that task. How is SystemParametersInfo related to the registry? ...

Re: Internet?

Danke für die Tips. Anscheinend funktioniert es jetzt, nachdem ich den zweiten (bridged) Adapter entfernt habe.

Re: keyboard switching and persistence

Why can it considered as wrong? At least in kbdswitch.exe/input.dll the call does exactly what is required. That it affects only the current thread/process is by design and the layout is not set for the entire system is by design. For example consider that you write, at the same time, a letter in c...

Internet?

Wie kann ich in VirtualBox eine Internet-Verbindung herstellen? Guest Additions sind installiert, NAT und Briged Adapter hinzugefügt, die beide (lt. Gerätemanager) einwandfrei funktionieren, bekomme aber keine Netzwerkverbindung. Unter "Netzwerkverbindungen" wird eine "LAN-Verbindung" angezeigt, die...

Re: keyboard switching and persistence

Many thanks for the keywords :-) The related documentation clarifies what's wrong with the current implementation. The use of LoadKeyboardLayout in OS code can be considered wrong, at least in kbswitch and during boot. Now I can find the places where the sources should be modified. This bug is alrea...

keyboard switching and persistence

I have some questions about the keyboard layout management. A keyboard layout different from the installed language currently is not properly supported. This means for e.g. a German keyboard in English locale: - after boot the keyboard always is set to EN, regardless of the previous setting - switch...

Re: Newbie Probleme

Danke, ich werde das mal probieren. Allerdings hätte ich gerne eine englische Oberfläche, damit ich mich mit den Entwicklern darüber unterhalten kann, nur das Tastatur-Layout muß deutsch bleiben. Sound ist mir erst mal egal.

Newbie Probleme

Erst mal vielen Dank an die Entwickler, Reactos sieht schon ganz gut aus :-) Mit RosBE habe ich mich auch schon angefreundet und eine Boot-CD (iso) erstellt und in der VM gebootet. Dabei bin ich über ein paar Probleme gestolpert. Zuerst sollen irgendwelche Treiber installiert werden, die aber nicht ...
