INFO: System Versus User Locale Identifiers


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Win32 Software Development Kit (SDK)


In Windows NT version 3.1, the following pairs of application programming interfaces (APIs) have the same functionality:

   GetSystemDefaultLCID()   and GetUserDefaultLCID()
   GetSystemDefaultLangID() and GetUserDefaultLangID() 

The user LangID and LCID are always set to the system value. In future versions of Windows NT, it will be possible to set the LangID and the LCID on a per-user basis.

Note that it is possible to set the LCID on a per-thread basis [that is, SetThreadLocale()] in Windows NT 3.1.
