RE: global IME on CJK windows

Thanks kevin. You are very kind.

According to document in,
implementing the active IME support take 9 steps. I did all these
in my application, and everything seems work fine as expected on
US windows. But when I tried my application on my japanese NT with
simplified chinese global IME package installed, I could not change
to simplified chinse IME. While Native (Japanese) IME works fine.
Base on my debugging result, global IME does wrapped the native IME
as described in MS's documents. So my question is, on CJK windows,
why global IME is disabled while native IME works? For IE, everything works
fine. I could select both global IME and native IME
without any problem.

Another interesting behavior is, if I call "LoadKeyboardLayout" ,
"CH" keyboard layout will appear on keyboard layout menu, and
it can be activated. However, IME does not work.

Any advice will be appreciated.
