I find it annoying to look up at my alt chart to find the perfect symbol so I wanted to know If i could modify the buttons on a second keyboard without hacks. I dowloaded a software clled MSKLC.exe but I cant run it because of another problem.

MSKLC is very good. Why can't you run it? – Oliver G Jun 17 '12 at 1:28
Microsoft .NET error (Its really bad) but would MSKLC.exe help me? – Jake Inc. Jun 17 '12 at 1:33
Yes it would. Perhaps you simply need to update to .net 4.0 package? – Oliver G Jun 17 '12 at 1:44
great once microsoft fixes that Ill do it (post that as an answer and I will mark it as teh answer) – Jake Inc. Jun 17 '12 at 3:11
Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator will let you create a new keyboard layout. However, Windows doesn't have a way to assign unique layouts to multiple keyboards: If you connect two keyboards to your computer, they will both use the current keyboard layout. For a possible solution, see Using multiple keyboards with different keyboard layouts in Windows. – Bavi_H Jun 17 '12 at 4:28

I don't seem to think you could run keyboards with different layouts on the same system. However you could get a keyboard (or mouse) with macro keys (and a software for that), unless you needed a lot of them - you could then code those extra keys (or even keys you don't use often) as additional keys. The Razer Keyboard i have allows me to do this, and i know some MMORPG mice which have 6 or even 9 spare keys.
