[wix-users] installing an input locale (aka keyboard layout)

Thanks! I'm actually trying to use the custom action DLL from the MSI built
by MSKLC, and that works fine for a single install. But I'm hitting
problems in upgrades .. using their custom actions in the upgrade ends up
with duplicate entries in the Windows Language Bar, but skipping the
actions on upgrade makes the package fail to uninstall (get 1603 from the
action, and uninstall rolls back)

So I'm hoping to roll a custom action DLL myself ...
