Ah, no idea, donât have access to BootCamp on this machine.

I moved the unpacked file to /usr/bin/XWin; that is correct, yes?
> I'm also not sure if using the standard pc105 layout is correct. xkeyboard-config has specialized macintosh and macbook79 layouts, which seem to differ in the location of the 3rd-level shift key (what would be AltGr on a PC keyboard), so I'm not sure which of those to use. Can you verify that is also working as expected?
Yes it is. Though it first took me a while to realise that something had reset my keyboard settings to EN, which made everything behave strangely, but once I set that back to SV, everything worked as expected.
Thank you for the very prompt action!
