Hi

 it's true.

  when your application is start there is no session is avilable after your application is load after then your session is start so if you write session varialbe in the application_start method then it is not work b'cus session is not initialize.

 Best Luck.

try putting that statement on the first page_load event of your application such as default.aspx instead.

This one:

HttpContext.Current.Session.Add("Lang","English");

I believe that session has not started at that point currently and thus no session alteration is available
