Setup.exe localization

P: n/a
Hi,

I am facing a problem in localizing the setup file and .NET framework
redistributable.

I am trying to deploy c# winform application. I have created a setup
project. I need to redistribute .NET framework 2.0 along with the
setup. I need to localize the setup project(strings appearing in the
setup wizard) for various languages.

I have modified the setup project's Localization property to a
different language. It works fine.

But VS 2005 supports only few languages. I tried to localize the setup
file for Danish language, I came to know about Orca tool. I modified
all the strings in the msi file. MSI file also works fine. But the
problem is with the .NET Framework 2.0 redistributable package.
How can I localize the .NET Framework redistributable package?
I have installed the danish language pack for .NET framework 2.0.
But how to change the setup.exe, which I created, to recognize the
language(Danish)?

Please help. I have spent lot of time(days) in this issue. But still
could not find a solution to this issue.

Thanks and REgards

consider localization inside your app, not the outside it

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

I have localized my applications. But I have the requirement to
localize setup files also.

Please let me know if you have any ideas.

Thanks

Hi Srinivasan,

Take a look at Infralutions Globalizer.NET product. It allows you to
localize the Setup (MSI) packages created by Visual Studio into any
language (not just the eight or so supported by Microsoft). In
addition it can produce a mulitlingual setup package that will
automatically select the language to use based on the current locale
of the user. It has a command line interface allowing it to be
integrated into your automated build process. You can get more
information and download an evaluation version from www.infralution.com/globalizer.html

Interesting. Does Globalizer .NET work for Compact Framework projects too?

The .NET Framework redistributable package is a MS product.
Before spending too much time to see how to do that technically,
make sure it is ok to do that legally.
