We have a new UK iMac and have installed bootcamp and windows so that we can run our accounting problem.
We are using the standard mac keyboard and mouse and the keyboard has a slightly different layout to a pc keyboard (" @ and # significantly). Has someone created a UK mac keyboard layout which can be used in windows?

Use this official product from Microsoft.  I used it on a Windows Terminal server for mac clients and it works a treat.  Install it.  Remap the keys manually to what they should be.  Save the file and create an installer.  Run the installer, then use the input locales in the language section (availble in conrol panels or right clicking the task bar) and switch layout to you new layout.
