    Intel HD Graphics Control Panel Displays Wrong Language

    Avis

      The System Default Language is: English (United States), But the desktop right-click menu shows Intel HD GCP items in Chinese characters. How can I resolve this without changing my language setting for non-Unicode programs?

          Avis,

          I am sorry to hear you are having this problem with the system but let me help you.

           

          The Intel® HD Graphics Control Panel will automatically select the language set for non-Unicode programs and this point there is no option to change at the software level.

           

          I see you know where exactly to change it but in any case here are the steps (may help other users):

           

          1. Go to the Windows* Control Panel.

          2. Open the icon Regional and Language Options.

          3. Select Administrative tab and select Change system locale.

          4. Select the language of preference from the drop-down list.

          5. Select the Formats tab and change the Current format to match the language selected from Current system locale.

          6. Click Apply and restart when prompted to “Restart now”.

          7. After the restart, open the Intel(R) Graphics Driver’s Control Panel by pressing [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[F12].

          8. To confirm the Default Language, choose the information icon at the top right.

          For the newer interface, select on Options and Support > Information Center to display the Default Language (see samples below for both interfaces).

           

          Instructions for Windows* XP

          1. Go to Windows* Control Panel.

          2. Open the icon Regional and Language Options.

          3. Under the Regional Options tab, select the language of preference.

          4. Click Apply and restart when prompted to “Restart now”.

            Again, thank you for trying to be helpful, but I'd read the first post thoroughly before posting if I were you. This is obviously a silly mistake made by Intel driver development team. and there is no way I would mess with this setting just to amend Intel's twisted understanding of some basic system settings.

              Hi Avis.

               

              Intel's menu items on Windows seem to be part of their 'igfxpph.dll' shell extension (can be read from the shell extension's registration in the Windows registry) located in the Windows\System32 folder. The same extension seems to be in charge of the menu displayed when clicking on their system tray icon as well.

               

              The shell extension reads its localized messages (such as those used for their menu item texts) from language resource files located next to the shell extension DLL and named 'igfxr###.lrc'. If the appropriate language resource file is renamed, the extension will fall back to using the English resources which would be exactly what you want.

               

              In my case, I renamed the 'igfxhrv.lrc' file to 'igfxhrv.lrc.disabled' and the menu items started getting displayed in English at once (no reboot required :-D).

               

              Hope this helps.

               

              Best regards,

                Ana Marušić

               

              P.S. I agree with you, Intel messed up by using an incorrect regional setting when determining which language to use for its menu items. :-)

                  This is for the new Intel HD Graphics Control Panel

                  so go to C:\Windows\System32\ find files that end in .cui like this example: resROM.cui (this is language file for romanian), now I don't want to change my System Locale because romanian has special characters like ă,î,ș,ț and so on.

                  So find the res###.cui file corresponding to your language and remove it...than rename resENU.cui to your language. Example: if you had korean: resKOR.cui remove it and rename resENU.cui to resKOR.cui, and that is it!! No restart needed the changes will take place instantly.

                  DO NOT FORGET to rename resENU.cui to your language otherwise all comands from Intel Graphics will become: "Cannot load string"

                    Intel seems to have changed their drivers once again. There are no .cui nor .lrc files in system32.
                    I've been trying to change parameters in the regestry, and I also tried to remove the language files (except english) from the HD Graphic installer. No success..


                    I've no idea what the F intel is up to. I live and work within the EU, and I work all over the place. Using English win7 pro on all the places... Language, Location and non-unicode is set to US-English.
                    However, Time and Currency is national, and so is the k-board. So every computer I work on has it's own "Intel Language"... NONE of the computers has the Intel HD Graphic panel in English.


                    Please! STOP FORCING AUTOLANGUAGE SETTINGS!

                      grynnan, the .cui files are hidden system files now, so you have to check the corresponding flag in folder options to be able to see and rename them

                       

                      worked for me

                       

                      still have to do it again after every update though

                       

                      annoying as hell

                       

                      @kevin_intel, is there any chance this can ever be made an user-selectable option in the control panel or at least changed to match the main windows installation language instead of the regional locale?

                        I know they're hidden.. if you got 'em.

                        I don't. =/

                          I will pass your feedback to the corresponding department for them to take this in consideration.

                            Same here.

                            Fresh install of Windows 10, auto installed latest drivers, can't change language back to English because the cui files don't exist in this version (neither hidden nor system).

                            Version 10.18.15.4256.

                            I would also like to join the request to stop forcing us to use the 'default' language.

                                With all due respect, that is not a solution.

                                I live and work in Israel so I need my time, date and regional settings to match that.

                                My operating system however is in English because I'm more comfortable using English.

                                Why does your program assume I prefer Hebrew based on a nearly unrelated setting in the operating system, and forces me to use whatever language it deems appropriate for me?

                                Just add a drop box with language selection! It's not that hard, almost every program has it!

                                  Based on the latest update (August 5, 2015), it looks like intel didn't care at all. Great work, intel.
