Hi Sergey,

You mentioned in your mail my setup does not display German UI with settings changed to 'German (Germany)'.
It is the setup originally created by WixDesigner, no changes have been made.

The fact that it does not display correctly is the reason why I created this thread.

Your setup nicely shows the German UI or the French (depending on format options set).
When comparing the order of language id's set in your and my setup, I can see they are different.

Yours shows as 1033,1031,1036,3072,0
Mine shows 0,1031,1033,3072

According to my testing, setup shows the correct UI localization if the first id is either 3072(neutral) or the language id to which setup defaults (1033 English) AND the 0 (what it stands for?) is either kicked out or at the last position.

These combinations work:
1033,1031,3072,0
3072,1031,1033,0

These do not work:
1031,1033,3072,0
0,1031,1033,3072
1033,0,3072,1031
1033,3072,0,1031

The question is, why is the order of id's different? I would expect the WixDesigner to create exactely the same order in your and my setup (except id 1036, which I did simply not include at all).
But obviously it does not. Why is that?
The WixDesigner version I am using is 1.7.205
Kind regards
Oliver

Hi Oliver,

WiX Designer doesn't manage the order of compilation. It is done by WiX.
I will investigate this issue and will fix it in the next build of the product.
