How to Use AppLocale on Windows 10
AppLocale is a program launcher that lets you run applications that have language or region parameters (locale) that conflict with your system locale parameters without having to restart Windows. Microsoftâs AppLocale can detect the language or region parameters of an application, and if those parameters conflict with the language/region settings of your system, it will run the application in a simulated, temporary âsystem localeâ that is compatible with the application. This allows you to run the application without character-display issues or errors and without having to reset your computers locale settings or restarting Windows.
AppLocale is a useful legacy utility for older non-Unicode software applications that use different code pages (ANSI, OEM, MAC, and EBCDIC) than your system locale. However, AppLocale does not work any more on Windows 10 by default. If you try to install or run AppLocale on Windows 10, you may encounter errors or compatibility issues. In this article, we will show you how to use AppLocale on Windows 10 with some workarounds.
