EEPC should pick the laguage which matches the one the OS is using on activation? If the OS though is in English, of course EEPC will switch to English.
The only way to modify this behaviour would be to add a "merge ini" to the machines via its own file group to change the default - I wrote an article about this some time ago which may help - http://simonhunt.wordpress.com/programming/localisation-in-mcafee-endpoint-encry ption-for-pcs-safeboot-device-encryption-for-pcs/
Thank you for the information. I noticed that you mention the merge.ini file in the article you referred to, but I did not see anything in that article that told how to create the merge.ini file. Is there an actual file called merge.ini or do you just mean as you add a language it merges it settings into the current locale.ini file?
I also noticed that my locale.ini file does not have the default settings setting. Is that only in older versions of the product?
a merge ini is a file type - it can be any file, but usually it's an ini file. In this case you'd need to create a file with the settings you wanted to merge into the original file.
