In one of my application i have to change the language to chinese(prc).
i packaged it by doing as given in : http://newton.uor.edu/Departments&Programs/AsianStudiesDept/Language/asianlanguageinstallation_XP.html

If i do the same thing manually its working fine but if i do it using the msi created by the same process am not able to change it.

The language in task bar is changing am able to see some change but when i type in microsoft word its not working. when i start typing in the microsoft word its again becoming english(u.s).

please suggest me if any one knows about it.

Hi , I m unable to get ur exact problem . However what i have understand is that u want to package an app which is of different language other than english.

One thing u can do before u capture, set the regional settings to the language u want and then package the app . And in the wsi created u can change the language options compile it and get the msi in the language u need.

Hope this would work out. If my assumption is correct

Here I will explain you in detail about what am facing:
> On my client request I need to package an application.
>I need to create an msi(Microsoft installer) to change the language of the microsoft word 2003 to chinese(prc) instead of typing in english.
usually we achieve this by changing some options in the control pane\regional language settings. instead of changing the language manually i want to achieve it through msi.
> So I have captured the changes by doing it manually but when I try to
> install those captured ones am not getting the desired results. After
> installation am able to see the Chinese letters in the run prompt but
> when I open the Microsoft word 2003 its typing in English only.
> So I want what is happing behind the screen like its writing it into
> some registry or some file or some exe should run to do this.... to

> Hope you are able to understand what I want.
now suggest me if you can what i supposed to do?
