Adobe Reader MUI is Adobe’s Multilingual User Interface version, with which you can install any combination of supported languages. For example, you can install French, German, and Spanish simultaneously and then switch among those languages within Adobe Reader. The user interface changes to the appropriate language automatically.
If you have problems controlling the startup language of Adobe Reader MUI, then try the following to gain more fine-grained control over the startup language:
- Under the Reader preferences, there is a setting for the startup language under the section entitled “International.” You can set this setting to the language of choice. Or, you can set it to “like operating system,” which starts Adobe Reader MUI using the same locale as the host operating system.
- Set the registry key UseMUI as outlined in the screenshot so that the operating system language is used as the Adobe Reader MUI startup language:
If you are still having problems with the startup language, try manually configuring the appropriate keys in the registry. Use either the Customization wizard (for enterprise deployments), or change them directly in the Windows registry for single installations.
- Delete (or make sure that the following keys are not present) NOTE: for a fresh non-customized install these keys are sometimes not present:
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\9.0\Language\UseMUI\UseMUI
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\9.0\Language\next
- Then add the following registry key:
- [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\9.0\Language\next]
Note: For Reader, the value is “RdLang32.DEU”.
The CLI tool for the LiveCycle installer and Configuration Manager is only supported in English. You may notice errors in the output if you use the tool in any other language. Some of the variables for host names may not be resolved in the localized output, or accented characters may not be displayed correctly as in the following screenshots:
It is possible to change the language for the LCM graphical user interface by changing the locale in Regional Settings, or by changing the LCM.lang property in the userValues.properties file found under:
Changing the language for the command-line interface however is not supported as it only works in English.
Ensure that you run the CLI tool on a machine with English regional settings, and change the LCM_lang property value to “en” in the LCM properties files found under: [LiveCycleES root]/configurationManager/config
Note: If you use the GUI version of LiveCycle Configuration Manager, and then chose to use the CLI version, you can use the property file created by the GUI version as the template for the CLI version property file. When you run the [LiveCycleES root]/configurationManager/bin/ConfigurationManager.bat file, the userValuesForCLI.properties file is created in the [LiveCycleES root]/configurationManager/config directory. You can use this file as input for the LiveCycle Configuration Manager CLI.
You can find further information and a parameter appendix for the CLI tools in the installation guides for each platform:
