How do I change project language without starting a new project?

Hi marksu,

"You cannot change the setup language after you have created your project, except by exporting and importing the string table entries for translation."

Thank you for your reply.

Importing string table would that result the same as chnaging language by greating new project.

Where can I find Finnish string table to import?

yes that would be the same. I suggest it's easier to create a new project, I don't know how big your project is, but I am used to create a new project to make sure that it really works. Otherwise have a look at http://www.installsite.org/pages/en/ispt_string.htm , this could help.

I've got this kind of problem. I imported translated string table to my (Basic MSI)project, but it doesn't work correctly. Installing first time goes fine, but after the product is installed and I run setup.exe again it gets stuck. Its supposed to show modify,repair, remove etc (maintenance dialog), but instead it seems like it tries to start a new installation and it gets stuck in welcome screen. (Next, Cancel buttons being disabled)

If I import the old strings back it works fine. The problem is just with those translated strings. I've checked that there are no string ID's missing or anything like that. I am pretty confused about this and I would be very grateful if someone could help me on this issue.
