Non-English Pocket PCs


Non-English Pocket PCs

Postby Dan East » May 21, 2001 @ 6:52pm

I have a question regarding non-english Pocket PCs that I cannot discern from the developer documentation. Anyone with a non-english device can verify this for me. I know that the "My Documents" folder is named appropriately for the target language (ie. it is not in english), and I can determine its name programatically at runtime. My question is are the "Program Files" and "Windows" directories in english, or in the target language of the device?<br><br>Thanks!<br><br>Dan East

My PocketPC is german; the My Documents-Folder is named "My Documents".<br>The "program files"-folder has been named to "Programme" and The windows-folder is simply named "Windows".

Thanks ShapeShifter!<br><br>Is the Windows folder in english for all other languages? If anyone else has a non-english device please take a few seconds to verify. Thanks!!<br><br>Dan East<br><br>Last modification: Dan East - 05/21/01 at 17:10:03

Hi Dan,<br>About 10% of my registered users are German and many others worldwide but I have only come across one person whose device had a problem with saving games due to the my documents being in German (don't remember the hardware model). In my cab files creation I use the various "%CE1%" symbols to place files in the correct place on the PocketPC.<br><br>Does this help?<br><br>Ian<br><br>'What is best in life ?'<br><br>

Thanks! I need to determine the name of the Windows and Program Files directories at runtime. There's a function that can be used to find the name of My Documents, the recycle bin, etc., but not the two I need. As you noted, that information is available through variables for cab files, so it should obviously be available to an application. I may have to try and get it directly from the registry.<br><br>Dan East

I think it's named "Windows" in every language, because in this case it's a name - and "Fenster" instead of Windows (in German) just sounds stupid!

I would say "Windows" is not translated. Dunno 'bout "My Documents", it is also called "My Documents" in the german version. "Program files" is translated to the local language.<br>Ooh, Micro$oft, why can't you just let all folders untranslated and not just translating a few of them? This is stupid. But who knows: Maybe it isn't a bug, but a feature...
