English - Canada RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

       I thought this would be a piece of cake changing the language default from en-us to Canada English, but have been unable to get it to work. I have tried 3 different ways of setting in the config.xml file and to no avail. For the following 2 below, the setup.exe just runs and then stops with no error message.


    <AddLanguage Id="en-ca" ShellTransform="yes"/>

    <AddLanguage Id="4105" ShellTransform="yes"/>


    And with the following, it complains about a syntax error and aborts, because I took the quotation marks out.


    <AddLanguage Id=4105 ShellTransform="yes"/>


    I'm at a loss as to how I can force it to make Canada English it's default.


    Any ideas?

  • I answered my own question. I have to set the correct default language in regional settings. The reason it keeps getting set to en-us is because that is because we have it set to English US by default in the Regional Settings. I will have to write a script to change the Regional SEttings language default to English Canada. Office 2007 seems to use that for setting the default.
