Hi

Is there a way to add a new language to an active project with
version 5.1 of the Install Shield. Any help appreciated

Hi,

If you are speaking of MultiPlatform 5.0 or 5.0 SP1, there is no way to add support for a new language. You can modify any of the strings used by the wizard in any of the 27 currently supported languages, but you can't add a new language.

Actually, if you understand Java Resource bundles and properties files, you could add your own language. (You would obviously need to translate all of the strings.)

Here is what you would do...

1) In the ISMP install dir, translate all of the strings in the properties files in the i18n directory.
2) Name the files with the new locale extension.
3) Update the ismp.properties file with the additional locale.
