Several languages support

Guest

Hi,

With XPe SP1, I use "English language support" and "French language support"
but in my built image, in regional and language options, in the "languages"
tab, I don't have a combo box to select the Windows language.

I want the end user to be able to choose the language of Windows.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Did you install the French MUI package? You need to use the MUI components
to switch between languages.

Hello Sean,

Thank you for your response.

Yes, I installed the French MUI package.

Actually, if I add the "Dutch language support" in TD, I have the combo box
in regional and languages options in the "languages" tab, but I can choose
only "French" or "Dutch". It is impossible to come back in English after a
first change...

Here is what was Release Noted for SP1 MUI:

The Microsoft Windows XP Embedded Service Pack 1 Language Pack provides components that contain non-English user interface (UI)
resources that can be used on embedded runtime images.
To generate a Windows XP Embedded run-time image that displays UI in a language other than English, use the following procedure:
1. Run Microsoft Component Database Manager, and then import the language pack object definition (.sld) file you want into your
component database. See the Installation section of this document for the name of the file to import.
2. Build the Windows XP Embedded configuration.
3. Add the language support component you want.
4. On the Settings page of the language support component, select the Include multilanguage user interface resources check box.
5. Add Regional and Language Options to your configuration.
6. On the Settings page, select the language you want from the User interface language list.
7. Build your run-time image.
NOTE: This language pack requires Microsoft Windows XP Embedded Service Pack 1 component database.

I think I have followed this procedure.

In fact, I can start in "French" if I select French in the regional and
Language Options component settings in TD. But impossible to come back in
English in the built image...

I went back to my book to see how I did this: Did you include the English
MUI Resource?
You need to have all MUI components for hte languages you want to support in
the image.

Gastr,

At run time, could you please add the following key:
[HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Nls\MUILanguages],"0409"=reg_sz:"1".

Please let us know if it helps.

Hi,

If I add the key, English is available in the combo box, and if I select
English, Windows is in English at next logon.

I will add a custom component which set this registry key.

Thanks a lot for your help.
