Wrong characters in application installations

Many of you probably were facing the problem, when you install a game or a software you can’t read what is written there. It ussually happens when the application is not in english, but in your native language, for example russian.

To fix that in Windows 7 open Control panel, then “Region and language”. Go to administrative tab and change system locale under “Language for non-Unicode programs”. You should change it to your native language you should be using more often. After changing that you should restart to apply changes.

In Windows XP go to Control panel, Regional and language options.
