Question

Why Doesn’t My Registry File for Changing the Language in Regional Settings Work After Cold Booting my Windows Mobile 2003 Device?

Facts

All Zebra Enterprise devices running Windows Mobile 2003

Answer

The registry file for changing the language in Regional Settings does not work after cold booting a Windows Mobile 2003 device.  The Operating System is overwriting the change, in the registry file that regmerge is executing, which sets the region.

The only way for this to work is to cold boot and then warm boot after placing the registry file in the application folder.
