The reason it is not working is because the file is not digitally signed by yours truly, Micro$oft - the Sig check is FALUSE! Also might be is cause the Hash file is not correct, could be wrong on that last one.

Search the MSFN forums for these files, "shell32.dll", "MCT" and "uxtheme.dll " others are also listed... these files need to be cracked, if you will;) to change other Features/Options via Windows XP. Theses files are not specific to editing the Lang Features, but may help in that area of "Cracking the resource"...

I know that 'Astalavista' also posted their own Guide about the shell32.dll - don't know if it will help towards changing the Lang, but it will help towards "resource hacking" - Since that’s what you are doing!

Hope that helps :hello:

ps: Use " :realmad: , :no: , :o , Darn, Dang, Oh Man!, Shoot, Crap!, Whoops!...etc... insted of

I'm sorry I don't know how to crack or imitate Micro$oft's digital Sig. :( But I hear there are ways around it. And again I could be wrong, maybe you should try something different? ;) Try searching Google for more answers - as I don't see anymore POST about changing the Lang. Also Longhorn is ment to be a WinImg; not i386-for the moment, and may require XML coding. Longhorn is also still in alpha testing that may cause undesired operation. Try downloading Longhorn in a different Lang version - compare the files...

Try Posting here:

MSFN -> Customizing Windows ->

You might get a better response. :)

Hope this helps :w00t:
