  • When you run the installer it will automatically install the most appropriate language pack based on the locale of the associated operating system running on the target computer.

  • You must install the desired language pack by applying the appropriate Language pack Windows Installation file. For example, appv_hib_LP_jmmb_x86.msi or appv_hib_LP_jmmb_x64.msi, where hib refers to the component and jmmb refers to the locale.
