Changing PowerGUI UI Language

As I mentioned yesterday, thanks to the community efforts PowerGUI is now available in 7 different languages and the list keeps growing.

If your language is among the ones available for download:

  1. Simply download and install PowerGUI,
  2. Download the localization pack,
  3. Extract the locale folder to the PowerGUI installation folder:

If your Windows language is that same language you have installed, just restarting PowerGUI will do the trick – it will change the UI language automatically.

If your Windows language is different (e.g. Windows UI is English, but you want Danish PowerGUI), you will need a couple of extra steps:

  1. Go to the PowerGUI profile folder:
    C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Quest Software\PowerGUIon Windows Vista and 2008.
    C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Quest Software\PowerGUIon Windows XP and 2003.
  2. Open the quest.powergui.xml file in Notepad, and change en-US to the name of your locale (which is the same as the localization folder name):

That’s it! Now you will have PowerGUI speak your mother tongue!
