Windows 2000 Professional, Windows XP

Server OS



Under which circumstances does the PBA appear either in English, French or German?


SafeGuard Easy checks the "Regional and Language Options" to verify the language to install.

Please check: Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options -> Advanced -> Language for Non-Unicode programs

There are the following possible results - main language is:

- English -> SafeGuard Easy language will be English (incl. PBA)
- French -> SafeGuard Easy language will be French (incl. PBA)
- German -> SafeGuard Easy language will be German (incl. PBA)

- Every other language -> SafeGuard Easy language will be English (incl. PBA)

Alternatively, you can use the command line tool "SetPBALang.exe" in order to change the language of the PBA. The tool can be found within the installation folder of SafeGuard Easy. Please be aware, that this only changes the displayed language and not the keyboard layout. For further information about "SetPBALang" please search the knowledgebase for "SetPBALang"
