Testing localized app?


J

Jens Weiermann

Hi guys,

maybe I'm just too stupid, but anyway...

I've more or less successfully localized my application. Is there any way
to actually test the translated version, other than by setting
CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = ... ? I'm asking because I'm using LOTS of
threads and don't want to add this to every single one.
I think I remember having seen some app.config settings for this, but I
couldn't find this info anymore, so any help would be much appreciated...

Thanks!
Jens

How about just changing your regional settings in the control panel?

"regional settings in the control panel" will not change the
"CurrentUICulture" language. It just will change the region info
something like currency or datetime format.


Change the default UI language requires localize version Windows
or
MUI (Multilingual user interface) for English version Windows
(2000,XP,2003). MUI is available in MSDN subscription.

yes, that's what I've experienced.

Is there really no other way?
