Safe Numlock status

Hey guys,

Maybe someone can help me out here with an issue that we are trying to solve.

We would like the NumLock status to be transfered between sessions when a user logs in into a non persistent sessions.

I know that the actual key is Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Keyboard\InitialKeyboardIndicators and that you can set it to 2 for all users but is there a way to let the user choose himself and let this roam during sessions? Not quite sure if this is even supported by Microsoft.

There is a VMware DEM config file that should accomplish this for you.

Personalization -->Create Config File --> Use a Windows Common Setting --> Keyboard -Layout, curson blink rate, etc.

[IncludeRegistryTrees]

HKCU\Control Panel\Keyboard

HKCU\Keyboard Layout

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\CTF

[IncludeIndividualRegistryValues]

HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop\CursorBlinkRate

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\ctfmon.exe
