I’m working for this customer who needs computers deployed I several different country’s. Because they run XP (I know!) they need that LCID – “hex code” number for the keyboard layout instead of the more user friendly “culture name” used in Win7, like en-US or da-DK.

Every time I need these LCID’s I find myself going trough the internet trying to find the correct match for the country I need to deploy to. So here is a link to a list with all the info you could ever need for this..



As a small bonus, I found this need little tool for checking out the keyboard layout of all Windows languages!



Just choose the language you think you keyboard is in (in the case Danish) and check if it’s actually a match. Even works with Shift, Caps and AltGr.
