Microsoft AppLocale Review

Tina de Pierre
Run legacy apps without changing language of non-Unicode apps
A review of Microsoft AppLocale by Tina de Pierre

Microsoft's 'temporary solution' tool called AppLocale is a program which helps you run non-Unicode programs without having to worry about the display of characters.

The way AppLocale works is by bypassing the system locale and running as an emulator for versions of Windows which are not in English.

When you run older programs of Windows using non-Latin characters on English-language versions of Windows, they often appear to be garbled. Microsoft AppLocale can fix this in some situations.

If the application cannot detect the language of the non-Unicode application you are running, you can select a preferred language to emulate.

Overall, this program can help fix issues created by incorrect Application Locale.

Microsoft AppLocale is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from computer utilities without restrictions. Microsoft AppLocale 1.0.0 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).

This language environment emulator software is filed under:

Compatibility with this language environment emulator software may vary, but will generally run fine under Microsoft Windows 10, 8, 8.1, 7, Vista and XP on either a 32-bit or 64-bit setup. A separate x64 version may be available from Microsoft.
