I install a windows 7 64 bits pro in VMware WorkStation running on a window 7 Pro 64 bits machine.  When I am done installating, rather than english it is turkish.

During installation, it never ask me what language I want to install.  Has anyone experience this problem. How can we resolve it? My location is Canada

When installing Windows 7 pro in VMWare Workstation.  I did not see the screen asking for the language.  I am not sure because VNWare Workstation uses EasyInstall which may have some default setting?

prak_seafarer,
I try your way first. no success.
hanccocka,
I am not sure why it will automatically startup without prompt me for language installation.  I try quite a few time.  It looks like VMware Workstation did something on localization.

I find a way to get around it. That is after the installation I reinstall from the CD by clicking on the Setup.exe.  That work.  Thanks for your help.

This should NOT be closed - THIS is a bug in VM ware and there is no documented fix. the accepted solution only changes the keyboard language
