Windows 7: System Locales: Must change ea. time I want to run a certain program

System Locales: Must change ea. time I want to run a certain program


I have two programs that I want to be able to run without issues. One is a (simplified) Chinese-language application requires me to have a Chinese PRC-Simplified locale to run properly. Using Taiwanese locale will render some characters, but many do not show, and the ones that do show are wrong, meaningless characters. The program won't even start and gives launch error messages in gibberish if I run with an English locale.

Another program, made in English, requires me to have an English locale to be able to read any text. It can run without error messages, but there is no text at all.

I would like to be able to run both of these programs without having to change my system locale each time I want to run them. Would there be any way? (The font in the Chinese locale is also terribly ugly...)

I run Home Premium 64-bit so I am aware there are no language packs available for download, but I am hoping there is an alternative solution.

Thank you!
