Every key of keyboard produces "?" in either Notepad or Write after theinternational setting is changed to Russian. Attempt to switch back to thedefault US-English fails because the ability to change the drive path "A:\"as prompted during the procedure becomes unavailable.
More information
These KBDs are included to support Unicode applications and Unicodeapplications development. They can not be used with the retail version ofWindows NT. There are several Unicode tools in the SDK. The SDK Unicodetools will automatically install the Unicode font, LucidaSansUnicode(L_10646.TTF). Customer Unicode applications may require that the customerfirst install this font, which is NOT installed by Windows NT setup.

To work around this problem, use the "last known good" setting by pressingthe SPACEBAR. The previous default setting will work properly.
