NI software installer should allow a plain english installation (not only for LabVIEW)

For all of us not running an english OS but want to install plain english versions of NI products:

Please give us an option or a documented method to install LabVIEW and  MAX and driver, etc. in plain english.

While it is possible to install LabVIEW in ENG, the MAX and the driver installer lookup the OS language and install the localized versions Smiley Sad   (just tried with a new PC, W10 and LV2018 full dev suite, even set my language setting to ENG, however I have to install the localized W10)  That is not helpfull if you want to look up the big commuinty help or knowledge base entries and can result in 'funny' error messages.

 

For the driver DVD I think I found a hack in the setup.ini

[Localization]
Languages=9,7,12,17,18,2052
#ForceLanguage = 9
CustomRes0009=SupportFiles\resourceEng.dll
CustomRes0007=SupportFiles\resourceDeu.dll
CustomRes0012=SupportFiles\resourceFra.dll
CustomRes0017=SupportFiles\resourceJpn.dll
CustomRes0018=SupportFiles\resourceKor.dll
CustomRes2052=SupportFiles\resourceChs.dll
StandardRes0007=SupportFiles\niresdeu.dll
...

by uncommenting the red part. But editing the setup.ini ??

OK, in this case the hint was there (or forgotten to remove Smiley Very Happy)

The actual suite installer comes with a .xml  configuration file where that hint was missing or overseen.

 

I suggest something like:

 

Installer found local language version: <OsLang> ,

Install (where possible) in language: <ListOfSupportedLanguages>

 

That setting is hopefully stored for future automatic updates Smiley Wink
