How to make 7zip Localization works?

Hi there,

I've being assigned packaging 7zip 9.20. I have an msi source file. I have created an mst file in order to manipulate some of the information and add requested properties.

Interestingly enough, no matter what I've tries, even the sources do not behave in a MUI way. In other words, Localization does not work as it should.

Can anyone help by commenting how should I approach Localization for 7zip?

Best regards,

I have a non-MSI installer for this and I can change the localization after the installation by going to Tools>Options> Language. This means that it is changing something either a file or a registry (HKCU) which you can play around using a Custom Action to be run by an Active Setup depending on the System Locale if you want. I already given you so much hints. It's time for you to find out.. ;-)

  • So if the registry string can be set, then also when installing the MSI, did you try to make it a property,perhaps? - dedenker 9 years ago
    • YOu can make your own property which will be resolved during repair if you want. No such property from my side because I dont have the MSI. Try to search your verbose log and see if you can find one. - dj_xest 9 years ago
      • Active setup is not allowed for this account. It has to do with something in HKCU. I think a Custom Action is in order. - boyangk 9 years ago
