Hi,

 

I currently have a MDT2010/SCCM 2007 SP2 and would like to know how to deploy a master image with the specific Region and Language Settings?

 

Settings i want:

 

Format: Enlgish (Australia)

Location: Australia

Keyboard and Languages: English (Australia)

Remove English (US)

 

 

Cheers

EJon,

We do it as follows,

then also run a registry hack...

RemoveUSEnglish.reg

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\CTF\LangBar]
"ShowStatus"=dword:00000003

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Keyboard Layout\Preload]
"1"="00000c09"
"2"=-
"3"=-
"4"=-
"5"=-
"6"=-

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"CTFMON.EXE"=-

[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\CTF\LangBar]
"ShowStatus"=dword:00000003

[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Keyboard Layout\Preload]
"1"="00000c09"
"2"=-
"3"=-
"4"=-
"5"=-
"6"=-


[HKEY_USERS\.Default\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"CTFMON.EXE"=-

We don't use this atm as we require the en-US pack but you can edit to support en-AU easily enough i assume

Hi Anyweb

 

No. i did not see that post, must have missed it. Thank you for posting!

 

there's some minor adjustment i made since i have an existing unattend.xml specified in the TS already. -- basically i just added the extra line in the newly created unattend.xml using WSIM. it seemed to have worked.

 

cheers!

What does this bit of the registry file actually do?

As far as I understand it stops CTFMON.EXE from running.

Is this needed?

CTFMON monitors the active window and changes the input language to suit that window... very annoying and in japanese keyboards we use the tilde (~) to cycle through the keyboard sets.... its not required so we disable it.
