Hi all,

I'm using VB 2005 and need to deploy applications to clients in different
regions.  In order to show different language during setup, I need to create
seveal deployment projects and config the value for "localization" (e.g.
English, Chinese, etc.).  It works fine except I need to create one for each
language, and also I need to rebuild all of them once there is a new version.
I also have to be careful to deliver the setup file with correct language
interface.

I'm wondering if it is possible to create a single deployment project with
multi-lingual interface, just like some commercial products.  When user start
*.msi, the first question is selection of language.  Then the setup process
will use the selected language.

Thanks for any idea and advice!

Regards,
James Wong
