I'm looking for a command prompt that will change teh windows keyboard layout to a specified settings.

Long story short, I cannot use GPO to force a setting, Currently we have ENG US & French Multilingual keyboards set and will need to leave them both as options, but certain apps can only use ENG.Need to script a fix for a common issue we are having in our systems.  

I've already tried the %systemroot%\system32\kb16.com
but that appears only to change the DOS prompt.

use a batch file to do a reg write to the keys.  

For simplicity, would recommend creating an export of the english and french layouts, then do an import.
