The contents of this report may be helpful for users on the Secunia Community Forum if you would like their assistence in solving problems with specific programs.

I would prefer a language detection and updating same language variant.
Second best would be a question which language to be used.

My system is a W7 Ultimate SP1 x64 German.

If you are using PSI 2.x you will need to double-click the program in the Scan Results and then choose your language. That however is not possible until the first time a vulnerability has been detected in that specific program.

If you are using PSI 3.x you will be asked to select your language prior to the first update for a specific program.

hello Mr. Jeppesen,

I am using PSi 2.0 and I'll do that click and inmput my language.
Anyway I thought it was working earlier.

When checking this program's settings in PSI again, I find that I've changed to AU (autoupdate). Then, there is an options dialog including the setting for language. There it said "default" - whatever that means. I thougt this means the same language as operating system or so...

Now I've switched to German and I'll wait for next update to come.

Thanks for your reply.
Andreas

Hi ,

"Default" language choice is actually "English" and often the GB/UK or International version .

You are not the first to be confused ; previous discussions have preferred this "defintion" over the the OS installed language as (many) people will/may have software in a laguage such as English when there is no local version .

My OS install language is French and runs (locally) in French whilst the majority of my installed software is installed in English-GB .

Personally , I choose to have the "Prompt" before 'auto-updating" set (for extra clarity/checking) and I always update manually anyway .

Hope that helps .

Anthony
