CR 2008 paramteres, export and print windows language localization

Hi, i want to use in my application Crystal Reports. I installed a trail version of CR 2008. My application is written in Delphi 7. I connected my application with Crystal Reports through the official VCL downloaded from http://ftp1.businessobjects.com/outgoing/products/vcl/crystalvcl11.zip and edited it to work with CR 2008 (12.x.x.x).

Everything works with this VCL. When i have parameters the Enter Values window where i enter the values for parameters and in the Viewer window the Export and Print Dialog are in English. I want to have them in Polish Language ( or operating system language). In CR i set in View -> Preferred Viewing Locale -> More ... Polish but the viewer window, export, print and parameters are still in English. I tried this also on computers without installed CR 2008 but installed CR Runtime and it is still English.

Operating system in Windows XP SP3 Polish.

Any ideas what i can do to have this windows localized in my language?

Hello Robert:

I am not sure that you will be able to do much. The VCL has not been updated since version 10 of Crystal Reports and it may be that the functionality you require will just simply not be possible. (I'll get someone else who used to work with the VCL to have a look too.)

In the meantime, you may want to have a look at the following:

Go [here|http://devlibrary.businessobjects.com/BusinessObjectsXIR2SP2/en/devsuite.htm], then check out Crystal Reports .NET SDK > Tutorials and Sample Code > Other Tutorials > Configuring Multilingual Client Support. (The above is for CR XI R2, it's the same for CR 2008 - I just don't have a link handy.) I am not sure if the above will help.

Also, note that you do not have to use the VCL. You can use the CR assemblies for .NET with Delphi. See the following for more details:
