OK. I'm not quite sure if I follow your question now, since you originally
asked about Central Store structure but you seem to be asking how you can
use GP to set keyboard location?

I have English Windows and English UK time, date and numbers. 

I only want Swiss French for the keyboard and location.

 

Ideally I want to set this up using my Group Policy. We get an initial Vista
build from our head office which is all US-EN, and I want the machines to
pick up our local config when I join them to the domain.

Carol-

Typically, if you are running a non En-US version of Windows and are editing
a GPO from Vista or 2008 with the Central Store in place, then your folder
structure would reflect the language you are running Windows on (e.g.):

 

\\domain\sysvol\domain\policies\PolicyDefinitions

\\domain\sysvol\domain\policies\PolicyDefinitions\en-us
<file:///\\domain\sysvol\domain\policies\PolicyDefinitions\en-us>     (for
English US Windows)

\\domain\sysvol\domain\policies\PolicyDefinitions\fr-ch
<file:///\\domain\sysvol\domain\policies\PolicyDefinitions\fr-ch>   (for
Swiss French Windows)

 

Let us know if that doesn't answer your question.

Can someone help me with the Central Store directory structure for an
environment where we are located in Switzerland, have Swiss-French
keyboards, but use English language software and English UK date and time
settings?

 

Any other pointers would be helpful.
