Brèves & Macrons (Windows 8 NOTE)

Unread post by Frank Hoffmann »

NOTE: The below, posting from 2013 relates to the (now reposted) forum post about keyboard drivers at:

Win 8:
The posted Windows 7 keyboard drivers ( are not 100% compatible with Win 8. As of today (Aug. 26, 2015) Microsoft has not updated its keyboard editing tool "Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator" (MKLC) to produce Windows 8 compatible drivers.

It is possible to install the Win 7 drivers I produced for Windows 8. But the "preview" function does not work (you can't get a keyboard layout window)--otherwise they work fine, as far as I can see after having tested them briefly under Windows 8. The install under Windows 8 itself works as follows:

(1) In order to install any of the "KJ" national keyboard drivers (that include the shortcuts for McCune-Reischauer and Hepburn romanization), you need to FIRST install the regular Win 8 keyboard drivers that these special drivers are based on. That is, FOR EXAMPLE, for the U.S. "KJ" keyboard driver you need to install and activate "United States-International," or for the German one you need to install "German." (NOTE: I see that e.g. installing the "German" one Windows 8 automatically downloads an installer file from the Microsoft website that is about 100 MB large ... and I have no idea why it is so large ... maybe that includes a dictionary?) Start installing the regular keyboard driver you want (*if* not already installed) from the "Languages preferences" link.

(2) Download the Win 7 keyboard .zip file and decompress it:

(3) After having installed the regular keyboard driver, then follow the INSTALL instructions for the downloaded "KJ" keyboard drivers as given in the README file that comes with these Win 7 KJ drivers. Very likely you have the new "Windows Defender" activated under Windows 8, so you will see a warning when trying to install.

Click on the "More Info..." link and after that on "Run anyway" button to install.

MAKE SURE to watch for 'shaking' windows and sounds, if enabled, as the first install window might be sitting on top of the follow-up install process windows; in those you need to twice click "o.k." to complete the installation.
Going back to the "Languages preferences" window you will see that there are now both versions listed.

You can now (but don't have to!) "remove" the original keyboard driver ... e.g. you can remove "United States-International" using the "Remove" link right to it.

(4) When I tried this install, I had to shut down the Windows 8 PC and then boot it up again in order to see the KJ drivers listed and for them to function correctly. (Not sure if a "restart" would do the same; "restart" and "reboot" are technically not doing the same; I suggest a reboot.)
