    I run Vista Business with Slovenian keyboard layout.

    When I run CMD it shows local characters properly and keyboard layout
    is also ok. But if you run or run any other DOS
    application, it changes keyboard layout to US. It doesn't matter if
    you run program in CMD window or directly with shortcut.

    How do we solve this issue? Under regional settings it's all set to
    Slovenian, without possibility to even switch to English (in language
    bar etc.)

    Found a solution, at least until Microsoft solves this bug.
    Add the following line to autoexec.nt solves my problem:
    KB16 yu,852

    YU is language abbreviation and 852 is codepage....

    Hope this helps others too...
