Well, sorry folks, but I can't get it to work properly on this machine, and I am not sure why. I will try on another machine tomorrow.

Well, you can try what Fayla suggested, and use "Applocale" in Winamp;

Download details: Microsoft AppLocale Utility

I have not tried it, because I don't use Winamp.

Unfortunately, the small package I put together for doing this in various programs wont run on this machine. Seems to be damaged in some way, and it is my only copy. I only actually set it up once, for some Chinese friends.
