Confirmed to work on Windows Seven 64-bit! Should work for WIndows Vista and XP too.
You’d figure that Microsoft would have ironed out these language issues by now. But the program is still in Windows Seven.
You can use a patched version of AppLocale located here:
If you don’t know Chinese, the direct link to the modified AppLocale is located here:
(I didn’t want to directly link to the file. Link works as of Oct 26, 2009)
Anyways just install it like you would any other MSI file, and use it exactly like the official AppLocale from your WIndows XP install.
Now you can launch AppLocale from your start menu and make a shortcut to run the application in your selected language. Sorry for the Chinese screens, but your screens will be identical anyways:
My original Japanese language program was located at:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\SmileDownloader\SmileDownloader.exe"
The modified shortcut link is now:
C:\Windows\AppPatch\AppLoc.exe "C:\Program Files (x86)\SmileDownloader\SmileDownloader.exe" "/L0411"
You can replace the file path with your target file. The 4 digit number (0411) after the “/L” switch is the language key.
0411 – Japanese
0412 – Korean
0404 – Traditional Chinese
0804 – Simplified Chinese
Of course, the location of AppLoc.exe may differ if your Windows was not installed on C: drive.
