Xenapp 7 language input for users

Hi everyone.

I would like to know how do I enable Xenapp users to be able to change input language of their keyboard. We have some users that need to have multiple keyboard writing languages and when they open MS Word application they have only 2 options, the main server language and English.

I have added additional languages to the administrator account and it works for the administrator but not for the rest of the users so I guess its user dependant but how do I make the changes to the rest of the users...

edit: It also works for new users but it doesnt change the options of the existing ones so if someone knows where are those options in the registry or in the app data files so I can change them for the existing users.

MS Office has language packs,  you can install the same on citrix servers and then users are able to choose the language what ever they are looking.

Thanks for the suggestion but you kind of missed my point. I have proofing tools and I dont want/need Display pack (UI language) what I need is to be able to write in different languages.

I have added the language keyboards to the server as admin and it works for new users (and the admin user) but since my users login remotely (using Xenapp) I need to change it for remote EXISTING users.

After some research I have found that those setting I need are in NTUSER.dat file and since we are using roaming profiles I need to find out how to change NTUSER.dat file with gpo or a script of some kind...

The setting I need to change in NTUSER.dat file is Keyboard Layout\Preload and make a string with the language I need. (for example SZ 3 00000419 ).

I have tried it manually and it worked but it would be a pain to fix around 200 users manually... Also, if I completely recreate the NTUSER.dat file it asks me to recreate Outlook profile and stuff like that so deleting ntuser.dat so it recreates is out of the question...

Will let you know when I figure this one out...

I didnt find anything on automated ntuser.dat modification so I made the changes manually to the users that needed the modification. Luckily, it was a minority of the 200 users we have.
