Is my take on this issue correct?
Sorry for the late response, I am currently busy on other things (real life)
I know that currently the solution for the localization is not the easiest.
This is owed to the historical.
The local parameters are defined and save in the project in Main Configuration with
Auto,"Belgian French",French,German,Greek,Hebrew,Hungarian,Italian,Portuguese,Russian,Spanish,Swedish,Turkish,"UK English"
The location is then treated in the local script (called from the 1 - Copy Files script).
With parameters for Locale (NLS, fonts), International Format, keyboards and TimeZone.
This locale script was updated over time by various contributors
to offer more language.
and the Auto setting allows, him to retrieve automatically the location information from the source CD.
The latest version (v27) on w7pese server was recently updated (in May) to recover the CMOS clock in all cases
The "Retrieve More Localized Info" script Provides detailed Localization informations of Source and HostOS
These are only additional information interresting for support and to be used by others scripts (so no need to remove it).
As the setup for localization was not complete and sufficient, it was added a new script to retrieve information from the host OS (Locale, International Format, keyboards and TimeZone)
In your case, I believe that leaving the default configuration, this last script should satisfy your needs.
The idea, then, is to have the choice of location in only one place "Main configuration" with the choices for Host OS, Auto (or source CD), and other localizations (perhaps Host OS by default).
And this for Locale and International Format, keyboards and TimeZone (keeping in all cases the time of Bios).
I have all the informations (I believe) and some stuff in preparation, I have to reorganize all this to make it easier for all.
but this requires timeeee.
