Change system locale using GUI ?

Recommended Posts


Referring to an older thread in which> system locale change was discussed using command line, I am wondering if this is possible using GUIs ? My ideal would be that operator would choose a language from a dropdown, click "apply", restart - and be done.

This is for a legacy software in an industrial controller - the software does not know Unicode and can only work on system locale level. PC Builders find it difficult to change using control panel.

PC is to be built using Win7, so perhaps a combination could be solution / only way: create XML using GUI, then call DLLs as needed.

You can use Run or ShellExecute to Run that Command.


I mean something like this:

Run ("rundll32.exe shell32, Control_RunDLL intl.cpl,,/f:" & '"c:\locale.txt"')

ShellExecute("rundll32.exe","shell32, Control_RunDLL intl.cpl,,/f:" & '"c:\locale.txt"')

So can have the languages to choose in a combobox.
