Consider the following important issues when you use the LIP:

  • The LIP does not apply any language packs or configure regional settings to your computer’s operating system (OS). If you want to change your operating system language, consult your Windows OS documentation before you use the LIP.
  • The Select Application list shows locally installed Metasys servers and applications. The LIP cannot change the language for a remote Metasys server or application. If local applications do not appear in the list, LIP did not find any applicable products on your computer.
  • Before you change a language, make sure the release of the language files matches the release of the Metasys server or application that you want to change. For Metasys engines, use the latest version of the language files. Use the Settings > Language Files Location menu option to point the LIP to the correct location of the language files for your release.
  • The folder name and location for Metasys software language packs is different from the folder name and location for Graphic Generation Tool language packs. Make sure that you select the correct folder for the languages files appropriate for the product you want. For example, if you want language files for Metasys software, the folder name is Metasys_v13.0 Language Packs v7.0.x.xxx . If you want language files for the GGT, the folder name is Graphic Generation Tool 1.3 Language Packs.
  • A language change to a network engine occurs only at that engine, and not to its Site Director. For more information about supported engines, see Table 1.
  • The default language for Metasys Advanced Reporting System is the same default language as the Metasys Server it is installed on. When the default language on the Metasys Server changes, verify that the new language is available as an additional language for the Metasys Advanced Reporting System for ADX only.
  • For each user, you can customize the language that displays in the Metasys UI and Metasys Advanced Reporting System with the Tools > User Profile menu on the SMP UI. From Release 10.1, use the My Profile user menu option in Metasys UI to change your display language. Verify that any languages that you want to view on the Metasys Advanced Reporting System are also installed on the server.

  • The site default language that is set on the OS must be the same as the default language for all network engines on the site.
