View Full Version : Eng;ish incuded in japanese eversion

I am using Installshield Express 2008 and created a new project, selected japanase as the default (only) language and compiled the project. Then I compiled it as a compact installer... the screens show half english and half japanese!

Help please.

have you converted the string table to japanese ?

if no...you have to do it by exporting the localizable string table to notepad ..and convert all the messages to japanese and then import it back.

Ok, thanks. That worked :-)

Actually, it didn't work. It works ok for the bloated installer, but when opting for a compact installer, I still end up with half english half japanese.

When I look in the exported language file, I don't see any english. But when I run the installer more than half of the text is in english, including the buttons.

Where else do the generic messages at top and bottom of the screens come from?

Are you running the install on a Japanese OS? Windows Installer will use the language of the machine for some controls, such as the buttons.
