Hello,

I am wondering if you can help me.

I am trying to build a powershell script which I can change the keyboard layout to english united kingdom india (0809:00004009).

My environment I am using is powershell 3 and Windows Server 2012.

I have looked at the technet web page.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh852168.aspx

But its a bit confusing how to set the setting.


$language = New-WinUserLanguageList en-gb
$language.Add("0809:00004009") (English India Keyboard)
Set-WinUserLanguageList $language


LanguageTag     : en-GB
Autonym         : English (United Kingdom)
EnglishName     : English
LocalizedName   : English (United Kingdom)
ScriptName      : Latin script
InputMethodTips : {0809:00000809} *Set this to 0809:00004009
Spellchecking   : True
Handwriting     : False

I tried the following :



$india="0809:00004009"
$a=New-WinUserLanguageList en-GB
$a.add($india)

set-winuserlanguagelist $a

WARNING: The list you attempted to set contained invalid languages which were ignored


Also this Set-WinDefaultInputMethodOverride "0809:00004009" , but it doesn't change it.
