Hello everyone,

I have a problem in making Russian version.
I made my program to display in Russian text including menu, button, tooltip......
By the way, I have no idea how to change the text of the FolderBrowserDialog.
I could change only message("Select the directory.....") with FolderBrowserDialog1.Description.
However I can't find the way how to change others(title, Make New Folder button, OK, Cancel button)

How could I solve this problem?

That is a common dialogue so those text strings would come from Windows itself. If the user has set their system culture to Russian, which they presumably would if they want your app in Russian, then they will see Russian text in those locations.

How to change system culture in Windows7? I can't find that option in Control Panel>Clock, Language, and Region>Region and Language.

That's not a VB.NET programming question.

I found the reason why it doesn't display Russian language even though I changed System Locale.
I should install language package but this feature is supported from Win7 Ultimate or Enterprise version.
After install language pack, language should be chosen in the display language option.

Thanks!
