How to install AppLocale on Windows 7 & 8 Feb 2, 2014 19:24:18 GMT

The installer was interrupted before Microsoft AppLocale could be installed. You need to restart the installer to try again.
Click “Close” to exit.
Turns out, the AppLocale installer needs to be run with administrator privileges in order to complete applocale installation successfully on Windows Vista or Windows 7. However, apploc.msi (or any other .msi) does not offer you a “Run as administrator” on the right click menu. There are many ways around this, one being running a command prompt as an administrator and launching the installer through the prompt.a
1: Download apploc.msi.
2: Move apploc.msi to C:/ directory for simple installation
3: Hit the start button and type “cmd”, you will see “cmd.exe” under Programs Right click and select “Run as administrator” and click “Yes” on the confirmation window
$: Run apploc.msi through this command prompt – “C:\apploc.msi”
The installer UI will launch and Windows 7 AppLocale installation will run smoothly.
For those who are not familiar with apploc, it lets you launch a code-page based application in a different locale then your system’s setting. Lets say you have an html file with Japanese encoding Shift-JIS and want to launch it with Notepad to make some changes. If your system locale is set to anything else than jp, you will see a bunch of question marks and garbage characters when you open the file with Notepad. You can either change your system locale which will require a reboot, or launch it with AppLocale which will simulate the environment.
I hope this will clear some things up with Microsoft App Locate and Windows 7 & 8
Update for XP Users: For XP users that is unable to install Japanese on there system because they are missing the installer disk.
I Will be sharing the "Windows XP Multilingual User Interface Pack 1" which contains the languages of Chinese, French, German, Japanese and Korean
