How to determine windows language ?


I want to know the operating systeme language (ex.: French, English, Spanish)

I found someting for Win95 and WinNT but in Win98, WinMe, Win2000 and WinXP I can't find how I must proceed.

For Win95 and WinNT I check the registry in HKEY_USERS\.Default\Control Panel\desktop\ResourceLocale their I got the language ID but in Win2000 , ResourceLocale
doesn't existe !!

Thanks,
Pat

Hello,

In win2K if you got to 'Start' and then 'Run' and then type 'regedit'  you will be taken to Windows Registry. Once you reach there go to
" HKEY_USERS\.Default\Control Panel\International\Locale" then it would give you a registry key code. Interpreting this code would give you the Operationg System language used.
This "International" registry details would also give you a lot more of other information about that Operationg System setup on that computer.

Hope that this helps.
