Different 2.0 framework for different country-versions of Windows?

We're about to go international with a .NET 1.1 app and just read a KB
article that says a country-specific version of the 1.1 framework
redistributable must be used which matches the country-specific version of
Windows that is being used (ie, if you use Hungarian Windows, you must use
the Hungarian 1.1 framework).

Good enough... but we're about to upgrade the app to .NET 2.0, and I don't
find the equivalent discussion/warning regarding 2.0 (or 3.0 for that matter).

Are the 2.0 and 3.0 frameworks country-independent, or do we still need to
install a country-specific framework?

David,

AFAIK, there is no specific Framework versions for each language. It's a
language pack that is added to the core framework.

Best regards,

I'm pretty sure that you must install the 1.1 framework that corresponds to
the country-specific version of Windows you're using. I've talked to some who
tried to install the US 1.1 framework on a Russian version of windows, for
example, and it caused severe problems with the application.

And as I stated in my post, there's a KB article that seems to confirm this,
at least for 1.1.

But is it also true for 2.0/3.0?

And the language pack is really really a bad idea - exceptions are
translated and thereby rendered completely useless from a developer point
of view :(

No, in .Net 2.0 all of the languages are included in the same
redistributable. Also, be aware that the .Net framework is in English.
Period. What you are localizing is the language displayed when the .Net
framework is installed.
