Multilingual Delphi application on Windows 7

Using the Delphi IDE language translation tool, (Delphi 2009), I have developed an application - says myApp.exe  that can run in french (by "default") or in english (DLL myApp.eng)
On Windows XP, my locale is FRB (french belgium).
If I put myApp.eng there and rename it myApp.frb, and run myApp.exe, the forms resources are correctly taken from myApp.frb and forms are displayed in english.
If I do the same on my new Windows 7 machine, this is not the case
Please help !

that sounds like a bug / compatibility issue...
it's difficult to google some hints about this, maybe you should try to ask embarcadero about it

I am very surprised that nobody seems to have this problem.
I hope not being the first one to have a multilingual Delphi application running on Windows 7 !
About asking embarcadero, I can try but I am afraid they will give a negative answer to my request, saying I have to pay for this kind of support = I had that already for some strange behavior of the Delphi 2009 IDE that they did not want to investigate !

IMO, there are very few applications using Delphi IDE language translation tool - most of those that need this kind of features bought better components for this.
And besides, maybe this bug has been fixed with newest Delphi versions, D2009 was release before Seven. You might want to try with Vista

Hello espasquier,
With Vista it's okay
I will upgrade to Delphi XE one of these days

then my advice is that you'll have to wait if XE solve the problem before loosing any more time with this
