SUMMARY

By default, the Internet Explorer Administration Kit (IEAK) English version has support for only the English language after installation. But you can use the English or any other localized version of the IEAK to make different localized versions of Internet Explorer.

MORE INFORMATION

For example, the steps below will describe how to use the English version of IEAK to build both English and French customized versions of Internet Explorer. The different localized builds must be made to different directories and must be done one localized version at a time.

Steps to Set Up

  1. Download the English version of IEAK and also any other localized version (for example, French) that will be used to create different localized versions of Internet Explorer.
  2. During the installation of the localized version, install English IEAK to ENGIEAK and the French IEAK to FRAIEAK.
  3. The English directories under the IEAK\CD and IEAK\IEBIN directories are called ENG. The French directories are called FRA. Copy the following directories:

    FRAIEAK\IE\CD\FRA copy to -> ENGIEAK\IE\CD
    FRAIEAK\IE\CD\FRA31 copy to -> ENGIEAK\IE\CD
    FRAIEAK\IE\IEBIN\FRA copy to -> ENGIEAK\IE\IEBIN

  4. Now the Locale.ini file in the IEAK\IEBIN\ENG directory must be modified. Add the following entries to the FRA section of the Locale.ini file:

    Win31Available=1
    MailNewsAvailable=1
    LDAPAvailable=1
    NetMtgAvailable=1
    AMovieAvailable=1
    HTMLLayoutAvailable=1
    ComicChatAvailable=0
    SetupExe=SETUP.EXE

The reason the ComicChatAvailable=0 is because there is no Cchat10.exe located in the ENGIEAK\IEAK\IEBIN\FRA\OPTIONAL directory. Make sure that the localized versions to be set up have the optional components you want to use. If the optional component is available in the optional directory, then it gets a TRUE flag (1) in Locale.ini. If it is unavailable in the optional directory, then it gets a FALSE flag (0) in Locale.ini.
