    If the setup project is not customized much, you can just use the property "Localization" of the setup project, it will drop down a culture list for you to choose.

    Otherwise, see Localizing a Windows Installer Package for more information, especially to depend on Windows default lanuage.

    By the way, in case of getting the following warnings while building:
    WARNING: Could not match culture '<culture name>' for item 'Windows Installer 3.1'. Using culture 'en' instead.
    WARNING: Could not match culture '
    <culture name> ' for item '.NET Framework 3.5 SP1'. Using culture 'en' instead.
    It won't matter the UI of the setup wizard. They just mean that you need to install specific Language Pack for Windows and .NET Framework in order to localize the .NET Framework and MSI error messages that may be popped by the programs.

    Thanks.

  • Hello.   I have a related problem.   I have built a setup project in VS 2005 and have specified Japanese in the "Localization" property of the setup project.    When I install the msi file that this produces, the text in the dialog boxes that pop up are in Japanese, but ALL of the text in the install wizard remains in English, including the text on the "Next" and "Cancel" buttons.    What can be going on to cause this strange behavior?   Is there something that I need to add to Visual Studio so that it can use Japanese words for these button labels and other standard text in the installation wizard?

  • The dialog boxes that are appearing in Japanese are the small message boxes that say "Please wait while ... "
