The FIX-IT’s for this KB have been released today for this Security update. They are available for download at : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2686509 

========================

Since we’ve figured it out, can you see if any of these solutions fixes you up?

Edit on Sunday 5/13 - I figured out the problem.  I had remapped a keyboard key.

 

If you are hitting this error and do NOT have a faultykeyboard.log file see if you can follow this post and get the patch installed:

 

KB2686509 - Failure - due to remapping of a key - TechNet Articles - United States (English) - TechNet Wiki:
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/10829.kb2686509-failure-due-to-remapping-of-a-key.aspx

 

If you upgraded from Windows ME or 98 to XP (you see nothing but .kbd files listed in your faultykeyboard.log file) -- follow this post:

KB2686509 - Failure - due to upgrade from Windows ME or 98 to Windows XP - TechNet Articles - United States (English) - TechNet Wiki:
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/10876.kb2686509-failure-due-to-upgrade-from-windows-me-or-98-to-windows-xp.aspx

 

If you have DLLs noted in the faultykeyboard.log file but can't find them on your PC follow this post:

KB2686509 - Failure due to missing DLL files - TechNet Articles - United States (English) - TechNet Wiki:
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/10880.kb2686509-failure-due-to-missing-dll-files.aspx

IF NONE OF THESE WORK, email susan-at-msmvps.com and I'll have someone from Microsoft call you back to fix your system.

This is obsolete

I wrote a VB Script to fix two problems while running microsoft security update KB2686509

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout
and
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layouts

for those who are no registry freaks.

Here you can download my little hotfix as ZIP-file.

What does it do? Nothing magic!

1. Makes a registry backup

2. delete entries in Keyboard Layout

3. checks every keyentry in Keyboard Layouts against existing file in %SystemRoot%\System32

Hope I help someone with this script.

Update 2012/06/03

I have written a batch file too. So you can use this instead the vbs solution.

It's a little bit harder, because the batch file exports the two keys, deletes them, creates blank entries. Then you have to run the KB2686509 again! After doing this do not reboot, press continue in the command window (restoring old entries) and then reboot.

If one of the (bad) keys does not exists, the batch file creates a blank entry, so KB2686509 should work.

Here you can download the batch file http://www.vivus.net/dl/
