Keyboard layout problems

Posted: 05-02-2007, 07:44 AM
Hi everyone. Windows XP had a problem with Persian keyboard layout since the
beginning and it was never solved. During that period of time, I've always
had to restart in safe mode and replace the corresponding file (KBDFA.DLL)
with another correct version manually. Now I'm facing the same problem in
Vista, and this time I couldn't find a way to replace that DLL file using the
same algorithm. I've tried to login in safe mode as an administrator, but I
still don't have the access to do so. Generally, I'm looking for a way to
replace such DLL files manually in Windows Vista.

Those files are protected against replacement using an access control list.
You would have to take ownership of it first and change the ACL to be able to
replace it.

There has to be a different way to fix this. Have you talked to Microsoft
about it?

hi

You must set Permissions to FullContrull
no need to restart

and after replacing windows take a copy of older .dll version to WinSXS
folder on windows folder

it's better to erase it

hi

it's very simple

just goto system32 folder of your windows

for me it's

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32


then find *kbdfa.dll*

Right Click -> Properties -> Security -> Advanced


the dialogbox with Advanced Security Settings for KBDFA.DLL apears

Owner -> Edit -> Other users or groups...

Advanced -> Find Now

then select your user name

OK -> OK -> OK

Auditing -> Edit -> Add -> Advanced -> Find Now

then select your user name

OK -> OK

Check Full Control / Successful
then OK

Check Include inheritable....
then OK

Permissions -> Edit -> Add -> Advanced -> Find Now

then select your user name

OK -> OK

Check Full Control / Allow
then OK

Check Include inheritable....
then OK

then Yes

ok it's done

you can check that here

Effective Permissions -> Select -> Advanced -> Find Now
then select your user name
then OK

if everything checked it's done

just OK / OK

now you can replace it

don't forget:

after replacing windows take a copy of older .dll version to WinSXS
folder on windows folder
it's better to erase it

you can use search to find it...
