SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You run a Windows Embedded Compact 7-based image that uses the hive-based registry and supports multiple locales on a device.
  • You change the system locale to some other locale by using the Regional Settings item in Control Panel.
  • You restart the device.

In this scenario, you notice that the system locale does not change and is still set to the default system locale.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because, during the restart, the default system locale is initialized before the user hive is initialized.

Note The locale information that you set is saved to the user hive.
