When I install SP3 on my NT workstation, the dot at the numeric pad changed into a comma. I want my dot back. I've already examined the internation settings and thats fine. Any ideas experts ? I'm locate in Belgium so my country settings are Dutch(Belgium)

Check your keyboard settings.  These are different from "Regional Settings" in Control Panel.  Go to "control panel" and then keyboard - which countries are currently installed?  Reinstall dutch if necessary.

The belgian guys knows that !

Just take the file named 'kbdbe.dll' on the '$NtServicePackUninstall$' directory, and copy it on the '\winnt\system32\' directory. Replace the old file.

Now, reboot your machine and enjoy the dot key !
