While on my errrands on the net, I found this one:

Here is the output of the app on XP (Italian):

Possibly not "perfect", but maybe it could be an idea to avoid at least part of the multilingual problems I seem to understand can happen.

As always for my semi-random ideas, simply disregard it if unneeded/unuseful.

The point here is, that you query the language dependent folder names on your local PC.When you create a PE, you have to use the language dependent folder names on the target PE (depending on your source CD they may be different from that ones on your local PC).

In nativeEx based projects this is done by reading, extracting, etc. the files on the source CD which in a real installation define these folder names.

For non-nativeEx projects (sorry allanf) I have no opinion.

Yep, I know. :)

But I would say that 99% of people have a licence for the SAME source (and language) they are building on.

Consequently it's not a "perfect" solution, but could be an option covering a large part of the intended audience.

As said it was just an idea....

And it could be an option for the projects, which currently do not or cannot respect the actual language. :)
