I have US English Win XP and Installshield 12 Premier edition.

I have some files to install with the same name in different source folders (by languages), what I'd like select by the language what the user selected at the start of the installation. If I simple set the 'Languages' property at those files, the installer filter them by the OS language, not by the installer's choosen language ( at least it's seems so, I don't have any different language Windows to try it).

Anyway, when I start the setup, and set the language to anything else than English, the installer still copy the English fileset.

Is there any way to filter files by installers choosen language, and not by the OS language ?

If this is a Basic MSI project, you can use component conditions of the form ProductLanguage=nnnn, where nnnn is the numeric language identifier (1033 for English, and so on)...
