Localisation - changing locale on machine doesn't change windows form

Hi,
I have generated resource files for a different language and
generated a satellite assembly for it, signed it and placed it in the
GAC. When I change the UI culture within the code the application
displays the correct form for the culture. However when I simply
change the language and locale settings in the control panel it doesn't
pick it up.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

Thanks
Karen

As I know, the "culture"(about the datetime display format,etc) and "UI
culture"(about the language to be used in UI) are two different ideas in
Windows. Change the "culture" in Control Panel just will change the
"culture" but not the "UI culture".

Basically, "UI culture" just will follow the language system of the
localization Windows.

For English Widnows (2000,XP,2003), the MUI can be used to change the
"UI culture".
