After a long struggle I got successfully installed Windows 7(OS in English but French Keyboard) in Lion OS X Using Boot-Camp. Followed this I have installed all the windows necessary driver software's but I have some problem with the special characters.

I couldn't find out the symbols like @ ! § { } + =.

How can I change the layout of this keyboard???

Could you clarify -- is this with bootcamp or Fusion or Parallels? Also are you saying that your Win 7 keyboard layout is set to French or that you have an Azerty hardware keyboard attached to your Mac or both? –  Tom Gewecke Dec 19 '11 at 15:12
    
@Tom Gewecke : it's with boot-camp. I have installed the boot camp assistant software for windows. –  linguini Dec 19 '11 at 15:45

@Tom Gewecke: Yes, in Win 7 even after the keyboard layout is set to French & the keyboard driver software is installed, still the layout hasn't changed. For example to have ! this character i have to press =+ key on windows 7. –  linguini Dec 19 '11 at 16:00
    
What kind of hardware keyboard are you using? –  Tom Gewecke Dec 19 '11 at 17:49

I didn't realize there are 2 versions of French keyboard i.e 1.French 2.French Apple in the keyboard settings.

Chose French Apple keyboard from settings, resolved my problem.
