    1. Nothing to do. Just place enu file in the same folder as exe. it will be used according to regional settings.
    2. I'm not sure. Better way is to test.
    Place enu file in exe folder.
    Change regional settings to English Canada.
    Launch application.
    If it'll be English that's ok.
    If not You must create ENC ENI and so on and all of them place to exe folder.
    The right one will be automatically selected
