Setting the language of HP Solution Center needs a full uninstall/install cycle *and* the non-Unicode Windows Language to be set

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/08/12

I can imagine why some people hate the HP Solution Center software: it’s a dork on the language front and not even Unicode-aware.

You cannot set the language form inside it. The language is fixed at install time. You’d think it would take the users language settings for that. But it doesn’t: it takes the users non-Unicode language setting for it. Which – of course – you cannot find when searching in the control panel for Language (or Dutch Taal) you get there by searching for Region (or Dutch Regio).

This succeeds:

Nederlands (Nederland)

Nederlands (Nederland)

 

It fails when it is set to:

Engels (Verenigde Staten)

Engels (Verenigde Staten)
