Problem

I want to make the Caps Lock key an additional Ctrl key.

Solution

To make Caps Lock an additional Ctrl for the current user only: log in as that user and create within the registry a binary key `Scancode Map' containing these values:

00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
02 00 00 00 1d 00 3a 00
00 00 00 00

or maybe you can use this:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CURRENT_USER\Keyboard Layout]
"Scancode Map"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,02,00,00,00,1d,00,3a,00,00,00,00,00
