I'm looking for a registry change that will force the NumLock key to be always ON, and that a user can't change.  I have a registry setting that will force numlock to be always OFF.  Here's the setting:

In HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout
I added a key called Scancode Map (REG_BINARY) and added the following value:

00 00 00 00
00 00 00 00
02 00 00 00
00 00 45 00
00 00 00 00


I'd like to use the same approach to make the NumLock key always on.

Thanks.

Seth

Do that Scancode map reg settings and also do this one:
HKCU\Control Panel\Keyboard
InitialKeyboardIndicators = (REG_SZ) 2
