What is Altiris capturing to determine OS Language? There are numbers which are not listed by Microsoft. For instance, Japanese is listed as 1041 by Microsoft but Altiris has it listed as 17.
Altiris uses the last two characters of the HEX number for language (as defined by Microsoft) and converts these to decimal and posts that to the database. For instance if Japanese is identified by MS as language 1041, then 1041 in hex is 0x411. Altiris takes the last two characters of this hex number (11) and converts it to decimal (17).
