How do I get Windows XP system language?

This question is answered

I'm need to alter some folder permissions as a part of procedure. My problem is that I want to use XP built in user group "Users" but in Finnish version this group is renamed as "Käyttäjät" and target computers have most likely both language versions installed. So I would need to determine system language before applying permissions but I can't figure where I can get this info?

  • Check out this registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Nls\Language\InstallLanguage

    .. and here's a list of the language codes:

    support.microsoft.com/.../324097

  • Works great. First wondered how to get all English variants, but they all end in 09.
