SYMPTOMS

When you change the default language to Belarusian, Bulgarian, Polish, Russian, Slovenian, Spanish, or Turkish, you may receive the following error message:

Windows could not change the default language because it does not match the character set (code page) that your computer is currently using. Choose another language.

CAUSE

This error occurs because the regional settings do not match the default language.

RESOLUTION

To change the default language, follow these steps:

  1. In Control Panel, double-click Regional Settings.
