I am not creating the bundle here. I am creating a simple bootstrapper
application (my own) which launches the MSI based on the language
selection. Is Wix bundle has the capability to display language selection
and launch the MSI accordingly?
>>>> Are these installer localizations or localizations on the installed
These are installer localizations. During installation, if I select
Japanese language in Windows English locale OS, the MSI dialog text should
be in Japanese. The MSI dialog text should be based on the language
selection by the user and not based on the OS locale.
Please let me if you need more information. And correct me if I am wrong.
