I've imported my windows box into VirtualBox (howto) and noticed that the keyboard layout is all screwed up.

My Googling suggests that a German and Swedish bloke/bird/person have fixed this issue but no-one in the UK.

Attached is my UK Keyboard layout, also the source file so you can use microsoft keyboard layout creator to make your own.

To use, simply unzip, run setup, and then in your keyboard settings (control panel) change to "English UK - Apple MacBook Pro" ... you may wish to remove the default UK keyboard to avoid confusion.

This works well for me in VirtualBox, I would expect it to work in VMWARE / Parallels but I've not tested it, as with everything I do YMMV :)
