    You will have to un-install any previously installed keyboard by doing the following:

    Goto Control Pannel.
    Double click “Regional and Language options” icon.
    Press “Language” tab.
    Press “Detail” button.
    Remove any already installed keyboard other than english keyboard (which is generally default).

    Goto Control Pannel.
    Double click “Add and Remove Programs options” icon.
    Find the keyboard which you removed from Regional and Lanuage options and click on its name.
    Use the Remove botton to un-install it.
    After doing the above install the Urdu Phonetic Keyboard according to the installation procedures.

    Feel free to contact if the problem persists.

    You can download the Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator from http://www.microsoft.com/globaldev/outreach/dnloads/msklc.mspx and then use this program to modify the layout defined in urdu-pk.klc

    You can create an installer using this Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator, which will create a DLL file and an MSI file. Double clicking on MSI file will install the keyboard layout. You can follow the Installation Procedure afterwards.

    I downloaded everything. I have windows vista. The problem the default Urdu keyboard is Islamic Republic of Pakistan. How do I get the Phonetic Urdu keyboard to be listed where you select the keyboard? I have no options on the main keyboards and languages tab except 1 which is “change keyboards.” I cliked it and it brings up the list for which the Urdu Phonetic is not listed. There is nothing to install additional keyboards. thank you so much.. If you can help it’d be greatly appreciated.

  11. aisha says:

    please disregard my previous question. I figured it out just by the Grace of God! I clicked Project the build dll and setup package. I then followed the link to where it said it was created and clicked setup. Then Vista did the rest.

    I had no clue what that was but it worked YAYAYAYA I have been trying to install this thing for 4 hours and much frustration. Maybe you can add this thing I did to the instruction.

  12. I’d like to say hello to all people on this board.


  13. Rasheda Khan says:

    I have installed the program, but what about the ‘zair, zabar, pash’ etc. keys also how about complex words like ‘batain’ ‘hahin’ which require some half letters?

    • admin says:

      zabar, zair and pash are available with the combinations [Shift][3], [Shift][4] & [Shift][5] and probably you are asking for Noon which is available in two forms as [n] and [N] and then Hey which is available on [h], [H], [w] & [W].
