How to determine whether other languages have been installed in "Regional Options"
Posted on 2005-05-02
My application is in VB6 and has the ability to dynamically change the entire program to one of 15 languages. Many of these languages such as French, Danish, Estonian, German, etc. can utilize the US English System Language under the Regional Options. Others such as Korean, Japanese, Russian, Farsi need the system language option changed to their respective lanugage in order to have the menus in the language. This works fine as long as the correct input Text Service keyboard is chosen.
I find that I can keep the VB6 menus in English, as an option, when choosing, for example Russian, but still input Russian into a RTF control if the Russian input system keyboard has been loaded beforehand.
Finally, my question is: how can I ascertain what Regional Options | Text Service keyboards have been installed in the system so that I can alert the user what keyboards are available? Also what other foreign language codepages have been installed.
