Win7 AppLocale.

    This is so strange, XP has AppLocale, why Win7 doesn't have it? I see people using XP version on Win7, but, why not release Win7 version? And what I don't understand is, why not included it in Win7 in the first place?

    WinXP and above can do all languages on non-Unicode apps. Why cripple it by not supporting AppLocale? I don't get it.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    What's wrong with the existing version? It works fine on Windows 7.

    As to why it's not included, Raymond Chen wrote about that.

    Thanks for clearing that up. I don't know about the rest of gamers out there, but, typically I want to play Chinese and Japanese video games, which is a typical senario in East Asia. Having to do extra work to enable  AppLocale is not ideal experience. Also, I have to do those weird command lines to install AppLocale_XP on Win7. The crippling is just toooo explicity. Couldn't they just add an agreement box? Like, warning, if you do this, your apps are not blah blah blah. Both educational and less problem for us only play games with no app comunications.

    @Sven Groot: I think he means the command-line swtiches for launching an application in particular locale directly.

    However, with a few treak to registry like the following, you can get the option like "Run in SJIS..." to any executable file types.

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\Run in SJIS\command]
    @="C:\\WINDOWS\\AppPatch\\AppLoc.exe \"%1\" \"/L0411\""
