Windows 7: [x64 Professional] InstallShield language is in German

[x64 Professional] InstallShield language is in German


Not too long ago, I re-installed my ethernet driver, due to it constantly disconnecting me from my network. The installer for the driver used the InstallShield installer, and the program's language was German. Subsequently, after using this installer, every other InstallShield installer is in German, and sometimes, the programs that they install are too.

My default OS language is English [UK], and the system locale for non-Unicode programs is also English [UK].

Is there solution that I can apply to ensure that every program I install in the future is in English? As, the only solution I have found so far, is to edit the parameters for each installer, in order to force it to install in English.

Thank you for your help.

For some reason, and I've absolutely no idea why, but I just launched an InstallShield Wizard for the 'Nexus Mod Manager', and now it gives me the option to edit the language and set it to English, which has also allowed for my previously German InstallShield Wizard, to display in English.
