Verify which language is set in the user Messenger profile RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is there any possibilities to get information about which language has user set as default in Messenger Desktop? I need to detect what is default language set in Messenger. At this moment I just use Windows Live Messenger Connect v4.1 (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff748560.aspx) (I know, it's deprecated). If the user is logged in domain live.com, then I can get some information like name, e-mail, etc., but not about language.

  • Hi Cezary, please note that the 4.1 APIs will stop working entirely in a few weeks.   The user object contains a "locale" structure but I'm not sure if this corresponds directly to the Messenger default language:

  • Your answer is corresponding to V5.x version of Messenger API, but I thought about 4.1 (need it). There, in 4.1, is an User object http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.live.messenger.user.aspx, but I don't see any possibilities to get locale info.

    So, can you cofirm me that there is no possibilities to get locale in 4.1 library version?

  • I'm not seeing a member under Settings that would show this.  You might be able to determine this from Addresses->CountryRegion.  Still, 4.1 is only going to work until next week.
