Wyse C90LE7 number lock bootup setting

We are rather new to the Wyse thin clients, and are having trouble finding the setting to have the number lock turn on when it boots up.  Would someone please point us in the right direction?  I cannot find a setting in the BIOS or within the Win 7 embedded OS.  

Thanks!

Login as administrator and mount the hkey_current_user and hkey_user hive of user registry.Then change the following key values (from = 0)

Hkey_current_user\control panel\keyboard\initialkeyboardindicators=2

Hkey_users\default\control panel\keyboard\initialkeyboardindicators=2


They are the same settings as XPE

Thank you, that worked!  Do you have any advice for a very green newbie on where to start with the Wyse thin clients?  I have bought ~5 so far for us and I haven't the slightest idea what to use for management of these things.  Ideally I'd like to be able to push out images or software packages to them with all the necessary software updates, yet I don't have any money in the budget for management software.  Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Sorry, thin client hardware and embedded systems aren't really my area. This was something I happened to have done before (and the registry edit is the same for embedded and normal versions of the OS).

There are a few superb thin client experts on the site though and if you post your questions about the Wyse boxes as you think of them I'm sure you'll get the help you need.
