Is there any way to get the default language used in the OS,
from the Registry.

Are there some registry key/value i can read it from?

Thank you.

var
  Ident: Integer;
  defaultLang: PChar;
const
  Size: Integer = 250;
begin
  GetMem(defaultLang, Size);
  Ident:=GetSystemDefaultLangID;
  VerLanguageName(Ident, defaultLang, Size);  
  showmessage(StrPas(defaultLang));
 FreeMem(defaultLang);
end;
