I want to change language of VS installer. How can I do it?

Hello Guys,

I'm using Visual Studio 2019 Prof. edition.
Recently, I changed display language of VS from Korean to English but something didn't changed.

As you can see in the picture above, Menu was changed. but when I checked update, language of installer remains unchanged.
If there's anyone knows how to fix it, Please let me know how to do it.

cheers,

seihyung

Hi,

The way is:

  1. in tyle here to search type cmd and press "Enter"

  2. change directory by typing chdir C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\Installer and press "Enter" if the installer is here

  3. type vs_installer.exe --locale en-US and type "Enter"

You can create also a batch

Best regards

Thank you for the information. I could install English version in Japanese OS with this option "--locale en-US".

It works. However Microsoft should think about company employees flying abroad, which is quite common. The UX is really bad here.

@AndrToth-2516, Thanks for the hint!
For me, the VS installer accepted "en-US" only after starting VS once with the English UI, i.e. simply setting English as the UI language and closing the VS window was not enough.
Then, however, the installer's UI was permanently set to English, so starting it via the start menu also results in the English UI now.
