FIX: Changes in the resource file for non-English languages are not applied when you clone the Calibrui module in a multilingual Windows Embedded Compact 7-based image


Consider the following scenario:
  • You clone the Calibrui module in a multilingual Windows Embedded Compact 7-based OS design.
  • You modify one string text message in the cloned resource file (Calibrui_Clone.rc) for a non-English language.
  • You build the operating system design for a run-time image.
In this scenario, the updated message is not applied to the resource file of the non-English language in the GWES executable file (GweUser.exe).
