Deploy with Group Policy in correct language / stamps script

Post by sixt » Wed Nov 27, 2013 9:15 am

Hi,

i have old Version 4 and wanted to upgrade to 5 with Group Policy.
Old Version will not deleted.
V5 will not be installed in correct Windows Language.
Tried to manipulate the msi without success.
Now i must change the language manually, the ocr language manually and the print driver language manually.
This makes me crazy.
Tried to change language from 1033 to 1031 in all tables... without success

Other problem is:
i had self made dynamic stamps in Version 4. Like on Adobe with script inside.
Now i must copy the stamps from old Stamps directory to new one.
They are not longer dynamic.
i don´t get in example the actual date inside the stamp

Hello sixt,

You are able to change the interface language after deployment via registry edits as well if that would be easier for you.
The V4 and V5 packages are independent and the V5 one will not remove V4 automatically - that's indented.

We are aware of the issue with dynamic stamps in the Editor and are working on fixing that.

Regards,
Stefan

mh oki,

nicer would be if you give out an group policy template for doing most settings.

Hi Sixt,

Have you seen this:
How do I deploy PDF-XChange via a Group Policy?

Tried to change language after installation with regfile.
I exported it on local machine with german language.
Is it the wrong registry entry ?

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Tracker Software\PDFWizards4\Settings\Application\Localization]
"LanguagesPath"="C:\\Program Files\\Tracker Software\\PDF Tools 4\\Languages\\"
"CurrentLanguage"=dword:ffffffff

Unfortunately it seems that the Editor read the language only from HKEY_CURRENT_USER:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Tracker Software\PDFXEditor\3.0\Settings\International]
"t.LocaleID"=""

And the browser plugin has his own language setting:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Tracker Software\PDFXEditor\3.0\Settings.BrowserPlugin\International]
"t.LocaleID"=""

Viele Grüße! :)

Tim

Hi Tim,

Glad you sorted it out!

We've dome some changes to our .exe installers to resolve an issue with them accepting a different default language during install correctly. I assume the same would be applied to the .msi packages and from next build all our products should deploy in the desired language properly with any installation package used.

Regards,
Stefan

Mhhh, I just saw that the PDF-XChange Editor use a "InternetRegistry" area to save his settings:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\InternetRegistry\REGISTRY\USER\...SID...\Software\Tracker Software\PDFXEditor\3.0\Settings.BrowserPlugin\International]
"t.LocaleID"=""

Since it use the SID from the user in the path it is not possible to set it with GPO on all computers in a Windows domain. :(

Hi gerundt,

Yes the interface language for the stand alone Editor and for inside browser are stored independently, but the browser settings should be in:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Tracker Software\PDFXEditor\3.0\Settings.BrowserPlugin\International

And not somewhere in the IE subtree.

Regards,
Stefan

Strange, I have two new (and identic) Dell computers with German Windows 7. On both I installed PDF-XChange Editor 3.0.307.2. One use the known "HKCU\Software\Tracker Software\..." path the other used the "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\InternetRegistry\..." path. Only after a repair installation he use also the correct path! :shock:

But glad that the reinstall fixed that!
