Change language and Location settings silently

Recommended Posts


Hi folks

I need some advise. I need to change the language and location settings of windows on the fly.


Regional and Language Options >> Regional Options tab


Standard and Formats: English (United States)

Location: United States


Standard and Formats: French (France)

Location: France


Currently i do have a script which invokes int.cpl in the run window and clicks the appropriate buttons to the set up the stuff.

But i was thinking of doing a silent regional and language change.

ie. when i run the script, the applet doesn't opens and it is all done in the backend, invisible to the user.

I don't really need the code right now, just some pointers to the right direction. any advices?



ps. i am aware that it can be done by directly changing registry entries but i'd rather not let my script interact directly with the registry.
