PGP Bootguard default language

Created: 31 Jul 2013 • Updated: 01 Aug 2013 | 4 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.


does anyone know what effects the default language of the PGP Bootguard? I have installed the PGP client in english but the Bootguard language and keyboard layout is in german. That is ok here in Germany, but for some users in the USA I would like to set it to english. Is that possible without using pgpwde.exe?

Thanking you in anticipation!

With best regards,

Have you checked BIOS settings?
Maybe it helps when the BIOS setting is english, too.

I can't find any language or keyboard settings in the BIOS. But it is in english.

PGP WDE is only a part of PGP Desktop.

The PGP Desktop package has a language code included which is possible to change after the export from the Management Server. Haven't seen any problems here which involved the language package settings. I would recommend to open a call for it in your support portal.

The PGP client gets its information for the language and keyboard layout from the user registry. That registry was for a german user and that was the problem.
