DIRT Installs in German

I just downloaded the Disaster Recovery Backup 1.1.9 - 5/6/2008 for Unity 4.X from http://www.ciscounitytools.com and it installs in German. Anyone know how to change this or get the english version?

Thanks

Re: DIRT Installs in German

Hey Mark,

In the CommServer\Utilities\DisasterRecoveryBackup directory, do you have the following?

unityDisasterRecoveryBackup_DEU.dll

unityDisasterREcoveryBackup_ENU.dll

unityDisasterRecoveryBackup_FRA.dll

unityDisasterRecoveryBackup_JPN.dll

Maybe you're missing the ENU.dll or its corrupted? If you have another Unity server with these, try copying it over and replacing it.

Hope this helps,

Mark,

You also may want to try opening DiRT and go to Help>About and then click the "Change Language" link and see if it goes back to English for you.

Try add/remove programs and remove it and re-install it again. You won't need to reboot.

Re: DIRT Installs in German

Thanks all for your help. I finally had to go into D:\CommServer\Utilities and rename DiRTBackup to DiRTBackupOld and then reinstall it. That was the only way I could get it to install in English. Even after doing Add/Remove programs it was still there.

Again, Thanks all.

Re: DIRT Installs in German

Just to follow up here - I think this was related to the auto installed version of DiRT that shipped with Unity installs for a few versions where the DEU DLL was duplicated over the ENU dll. The uninstall doesn't remove these when you run the uninstaller since Install Shield did not put htem there (i.e. the Unity setup XCOPIES them there) - Install Shield wont remove what it didn't add.

Short version - the English resource strings for DiRT (and most desktop applications for Windows) are contained in the EXE itself as well as in the external resource DLL file. If you delete all the resource language DLLs it will force the application to fall back on the english strings - this is the quickest way to force English if you're having a problem. The external DLL reference is there so folks can localize information in the field without having to produce a new EXE.

Your trick renaming to ...Old and reinstalling did the job.
