    Ich habe EEP16 neu installiert (auf Deutsch !!!) und jetzt funzt alles normal.

    Danke fuer Eure Hilfe.:aq_1:


    Hi everyone, I bought and downloaded the EEP16 expert ISO and installed it seemingly without any issues or problems. After finishing the install I started it and the program runs in ENGLISH (not in German). I never got a question of preferred language, so my question now is: why.? And what can I

    do to set it to German. There seems to be no switch/setting with wich to control program language.

    Hi Wijnand :)


    you should have got such a choice during installation.

    what can I do to set it to German. There seems to be no switch/setting with wich to control program language.

    That's true. After installation there is no chance to change the GUI language. You will have to un- and reinstall.

  • Just in case you need to know, you can change the language at any time. (perhaps you're not supposed to know)

    There is a file named eep.lng and also files named EEx_DE.lng, EEx_EN.lng an EEx_FR.

    Rename eep.lng to eepsave.lng then copy and alter EEx_DE.lng to eep.lng.

    This changes to German.

    Make sure to save all these files safely before trying this (backup somewhere away from main file - just in case)
