For some reason I need to add keyboard layout to temporary profile in Windows 7. And I have added registry keys to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Keyboard layout, but when I logs with temporary profile I don't see these changes in "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Keyboard layout". So it seems to me that temporary profile is copied from somewhere else. And the question is where is it copied from?

"HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\"

The reason you are not seeing the changes, is because that is not the Default User profile.

You will want to mount the ntuser.dat in c:\users\default, and modify the changes there....

hm. I don't understand. Temp profile is created each time when user cannot login to his correct profile. But when user logs off this profile is deleted (and ntuser.dat too). And I want temp profile to have additional layout whenever users logs on to temp profile. As I understand Windows copies this profile from some template. So the question is where can I find this template and modify it?

I answered this above.... It is the Default user profile stored here.....

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Oh, sorry! Thanks a lot. I just haven't get that c:\users\default and "HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\" are different profiles.
