Patch for AppLocale

January 9, 2008

Finally back in action. πŸ™‚ My PC has broke down quite a while ago, spitting random BSOD and eventually met its uneventful death. Amen. Now I am starting a new year with a brand new laptop. πŸ˜€ Yay! Okay lets get back to business.

I am a person who frequently use non-English application while running on the default system locale. The result ? Garbage characters in UI as the Microsoft puts it. This is where AppLocale come in, it allows you to run an application in a specific locale without messing around with the default system locale. Unfortunately, for no good reason Microsoft left an annoying message that kept reminds you about “AppLocale is just a temporary solution” whenever you launch AppLocale via shortcut.

So I made a patch to remove the nag. All you have to do is drop the patched AppLoc.exe into C:\Windows\AppPatch\AppLoc.exe and replace it.

Enjoy !

    Thank you so much for this fix! The stupid nag screen always annoyed me, so much so I’ve used NTLEA wherever I can for locale-fixing. But then sometimes I *have* to use AppLocale for certain programs that I use almost daily, so that nag screen just bugs me daily.

    They really should have put a “Do not show this screen next time” checkmark somewhere…

    I was just thinking about how well Applocale worked for a Japanese application I recently got, namely in it generating shortcuts for easy access too, but seeing that the only thing preventing it from being perfect was the annoying nag message you couldn’t disable, until now. Excellent share; great work.

    Absolutely fantastic, this will please many people who use this program a lot (especially me!)

    Thank you so much. I’m sharing a poorly written, but important application to our company from 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services web portal. I had issues with Japanese support and found applocale. Your patched version of apploc.exe really put the final touches on my deployment though. Thanks!

    Great! The warning was really annoying!

    When i try to open my game it says the thing below. I saved the file you uploaded here to a folder i can find it in and it told me to manually show it where i saved it. I opened it then it said this:
    Could not find the resource DLL file: alres409.dll

  20. this is not working!!! Games using it still don’t run!!! it just removes the message but does NOT fix the problem!!!

  24. Anon permalink

    I would really love to get it too but it seems the link is broken. could you (or someone else here perhaps?) reupload it please? Its really annoying to get the popup message everytime i start one of my applocale games
