I'm trying to get information about the Windows language settings.

In Windows 11, how can I get information about the language settings on Windows and what information do I need to get?

I've found "winnls.h", and am referencing it but i have a question.

with "Beta: Use Unicode UTF-8 for worldwide language support" checked,

The code page number value obtained with GetACP() is different from the code page number value obtained with GetLocaleInfoEx(LOCALE_NAME_SYSTEM_DEFAULT, LOCALE_IDEFAULTCODEPAGE, ... ), which information should I follow?

    Hello @손 상현,

    GetACP function Retrieves the current Windows ANSI code page identifier for the operating system.

    LOCALE_IDEFAULTCODEPAGE means the default oem code page for locale.

    LOCALE_IDEFAULTANSICODEPAGE means the default ansi code page for locale.

    GetACP and LOCALE_IDEFAULTANSICODEPAGE retrieve the same code page identifier for me.
