I installed VS express in Spanish and want to switch to English RRS feed

    I downloaded Visual Studio Express in Spanish (my OS language). The first time it installed a lot of stuff and took a long time. I uninstalled it and downloaded the IDE in English, and installed it. Now the IDE is in English, but I still get the error messages in Spanish. This is really annoying since it's impossible to find documentation about exceptions in Spanish, and translations are not literal, so I end up having to guess what the heck is the original error message.

    So if reinstalling the IDE doesn't work, what exactly do I have to reinstall?

    Thanks a bunch!

    It turned out all I had to do was to uninstall the Spanish language packs to "uncover" the original language (that is, English), and all error messages started automatically showing up in English Laughing
