    I can. Localized versions of Windows have a localized version of the Registry, if the drivers are dependent upon things in there it's quite possible they will fail. This is different to MUI versions, which have the Registry in English and only the UI gets localized.

    I've not yet come across a Japanese driver that had that problem. The only issue I've ever had with them is the fact that quite often the installer or other included UI is compiled for ANSI and therefore depends on the system codepage being Japanese (it'll just display gibberish otherwise); as I already said, AppLocale (or simply changing the codepage) fixed that nicely.

    Of course, that doesn't mean that there aren't any, just that I find it unlikely based on personal experience.
