How to install AppLocale utility

Applocale is a utility which allows Windows XP, Server 2003, and Vista to run of legacy (code page based) application. For instance, if a program is not running correctly with unicodes, it can be running correctly with AppLocale and appropriate code page configurations.

Microsoft made this program in 2003, but I don't think they are going to upgrade this program. Since it follows older versions of setup installer, it could make problem while installing AppLocale in Windows Vista or Windows 7. It usually makes following error message:

"There is problem with this Windows Installer package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run. blah, blah..."

It is because the older versions of setup installer didn't consider the administrator previlege which is included in Windows Vista or Windows 7 recently. So, to install AppLocale appropriately, you need the administrator previlege. You can install AppLocale with the administrator previlege, do following:

1. Run command prompt as administrator
2. Type 'msiexec /i apploc.msi'
