Windows 7: Programs Install in wrong language

Hi Kari & All,

Found the workaround via Audacity's forums - had to enter their menu preferences and select English language there (it had been set on "system", even though I had selected English as the language during install and my Win 7 is in English).
Beta has its' quirks...
Glad others found your story as interesting as I did, Kari - and off-topic or not, I liked it!
Hope to "go to a few big ones" (and drink them as well...) when you next visit. I work as lighting designer / technician for Vantaan Nuorisopalvelu in their Lasten ja Nuorten Kulttuuri ja Monitiomitalo Vernissa in Tikkurila - we have a nice café overlooking the waterfall on the Kerava River. Good place to hook up - right near the railway station. Let me know...

Good to hear you got it working. I know only the science center Heureka in Tikkurila, but I'll find you when there

Train to Tikkurila, down into the railway's tunnel under the tracks, left thru the tunnel towards the Sokos Hotel Vantaa, then turn right down the path along the other side of the rail tracks - the path ends at the Kerava River and takes you right to our front door. Heureka is just on the other side of the river from us; we're in the large brick smokestacked building which used to be Tikkurila Paint's factory. Check Tikkurilantie 36 on Google Earth...

You can be sure I'll visit the place when next time in Finland. Had planned to be there Christmas and New Year, but the strokes have changed my plans, am still unable to travel. Early next year, maybe.

Take care. Send some Karhu beer, please...
