This article was previously published under Q318388

Symptoms

When you start a program after you install and configure a new Input Method Editor (IME) as the default keyboard layout, the previous default keyboard layout may be used.

Cause

This problem may occur if the following conditions exist:
  • A user without administrator permissions is logged on to Windows.
  • The default keyboard item in the registry does not match the default keyboard layout.
This problem occurs because the Msctf.dll file that is running under the permissions of the user account does not have sufficient permissions to evaluate the new default keyboard layout from the registry.

Resolution

To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows XP. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
