Okay, could you people tell me more about this? You install autohotkey to your USB stick with the layout script, and then you can just put your USB drive in any computer and run the script to get the layout? Sounds very convenient!
I'm an AutoIt3 man myself - which of those would be the most convenient to use, I wonder? Shai, you've used AutoIt - what do you think? From a quick glance, it looks like AutoIt would be less suited and more of a hassle since it doesn't have any readymade remapping features, but it does have a tantalizing feature:
It strikes me that I could in theory do a full remap in a script and then compile that to .exe! So I would only need to keep that .exe on my USB stick and it'd completely take care of business with a double click. Woo!
Have anyone done that? Is anyone else interested in me doing it? Would someone help make an icon for the program?
The problem with a compiled program is that people have to trust you not to put in any malicious code in there. But I trust myself! And it'd be up to other people whether they chose to trust me and their virus/malware scanners. The next problem is that my code would be likely to do a few things to tick off malware detectors: Some of them are touchy about any AutoIt code no matter what it is, and after all I'd be scanning for keystrokes which is exactly what those nasty keyloggers do. Maybe nobody would dare use my .exe - but at any rate I'd post the script code and they could read it and compile it if they were suspicious.
[Edit: It turns out that AutoHotkey does have a compile feature. I'm looking into this - looks promising.]
