It always happens on a Sunday.

Whilst working on a rollout on the outskirts of Rio, I discovered that the ?/ᴏ key was not working on the laptops I was deploying.

The machine did not have an OEM installation of Windows 7, but a customised image with the Brazilian MUI installed.

To resolve I had to add this registry key and reboot.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout]
“Scancode Map”=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,02,00,00,00,73,00,1d,e0,00,00,00,00

This issue occurs with ABNT and ABNT2 keyboards.
