The Microsoft Software License Terms appear in the incorrect language when you try to view them in a program in Windows Vista

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
Symptoms
When you try to view the Microsoft Software License Terms in a program in Windows Vista, the license terms appear in the incorrect language. This problem occurs only after you configure Windows Vista to use a language other than the language that was set when you installed Windows Vista.

Note To view the license terms in most programs, click About in the Help menu.
Cause
This problem occurs when Microsoft Windows Welcome does not copy the correct license terms file to the correct location on the computer. Therefore, the Winver.exe program cannot locate the correct license terms file. Programs that include an About Windows feature use Winver.exe to display the license terms.
