Hi all,
i know it's possible, but how can i add, for example russian resource files to my english os and compile the program having it in russian language afterwards?
I can compile, but what comes out is some weird characters even on russian systems.
I tried to change the codepage but with no effect.
Does somebody have some suggestions for me?
Thanks in advance!
Greerings, -ulf-

To support multiple languages (text) I think you need to supply the resources as one dll per language.  Then you select which dll is required based on the user choice and obtain the text from that dll that is to be displayed.

I don't wanto to dynamically choose the language.
I just wanted to know what to do, so that the characters are displayed correctly.

1. Open the .rc file in text mode
2. Search for LANGUAGE attribute
3. Change to: LANGUAGE 0x19
4. Search for #pragma code_page
5. Change to #pragma code_page(1251)

It should do it for resources.
