You can try to duplicate the file sym.0409.txt in the windows folder and name this new file sym.0407.txt. It worked for me for the french keyboard (sym.040C.txt in french).

What Atmis said, I simply modified the sym.0409.txt file in /Windows so I easily could type Swedish characters such as , & with a/o + space. You need to copy it over to your computer with active sync, edit the file then move it back.

Already tried to copy the origional sym.409.txt to sym.407.txt (german) but when i press the "blue" space nothing happens.

You need to replace the sym.0409.txt file if your OS is in English.
