Ha just came across another one of my enemies - "let me pick for you the language that I suppose you'd like with no option to change it".
Nvidia 45.23 drivers on Win98. I'm a French-speaking Swiss, but like everything on my computers to be in English. Still, to have the metric system, proper 24h time, currency and number separators, I set my "Regional settings" to French (Swiss). Those damn drivers follow that stupid setting and display all menus in French (in piss poor translation quality as a cherry on top).
Why would ANYONE think that it is a good idea to set the language based on a REGIONAL SETTING which is a FORMATTING option? Why not follow the bloody OS language by default, and better yet, offer an option to change the language? And btw, if you change your regional settings and reboot, the program follows the new setting even after being installed. So I can't set it to English, install drivers, then switch back to French. Bottom line, if I want to keep my French (Swiss) regional setting, I need to deal with Nvidia being in piss-poor French. Gah.
Makes my blood boil. I want to retroactively see a manager 😁
By the way if anyone knows a registry tweak to force the language for those drivers, I'm all ears. I looked for it but couldn't find anything, and googling brings stuff for more recent driver versions and the registry structure is all different.
