Suitable for Windows 98
In short -- it works.
I installed Windows 98 on the machine which already had a few layouts produced with my program. More precisely, this machine had one US English, one Spanish and two Serbian layouts on Windows 95. After the installation of Windows 98 two Serbian layouts vanished from the taskbar indicator. I wasn't too surprised, so I just activated Keyboard Control Panel and added the layouts. Windows 98 took the files from the CD. Then I tried to copy JKG generated files over the ones which appeared in Windows\System. I was amused with the new look of Windows folder ("web page" look where I had to click on the link just to display the files in it).
I thought I copied files, but after the restart I discovered that one of two files was again Windows' original and not JKG generated one. I guess Windows 98 somehow overwrote this one with the original, but I am not sure exactly when it happened. I simply copied my files to Windows\System again, restarted once more -- and everything finally worked as expected.
I know that advertising materials for Windows 98 state that Windows 98 somehow protects its system files, but I still didn't read some more technical description of this behaviour. Did I really fight with this new feature, or I just didn't carefully copy the file in System folder? I still don't know. If you know more about it, send me an e-mail.
