Language Bar with Roaming Profiles

I have set up the language bar on an XP computer at our School with English, Chinese and Spanish. It works fine for the administrator log on but not when a Student logs on, all he gets is English / English (united Sates). The Students have roaming profiles. How can I 'set' the computer to give the correct language bar to any one who logs on to that computer. Thanks.

You need to set up additional languages in the user profiles.

Unfortunately, there's no straight forward way to do this.

I've made a custom ADM - but you can script the following registry key to do the same thing:

Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\System\Keyboard Layout\Preload"

Set DWORD Values in the order that you want
eg: "1" "00000809" for UK
"2" "00000409" for US
and so on
Forced accept.
