so just imagine.... you're in a strange foreign country like
that one. folks have a strange language, umlauts and stuff... so - you're working with vs running ontop of a german language xp, debugging a .net app running ontop of a localized version of net framework.
Oh man you are so right, I hated this "feature" in every VB Runtime I used so far. But ever came across some problems where bool values have been translated false = falsch and true = wahr help !
And of course you have some Windows Strings they promise on MSDN that they do not translate them - and what happens try French Windows and search the OS Name I guess the original MSDN Document has been removed or edited already,...
