LoL in my particular case, I did all 3 things on all the 
install/reinstall/uninstall cases I had trying to get that app to work /it 
requires Bulgarian language, it uses MDAC, it has a MSSQL2005 server backend, 
it needs that dot, some part is Tahoma font, others are, well, just about any 
font you can imagine, I know the man who wrote it, his moto is: "allways new 
stuff, always microsoft" /OMG is he really gonna go VISTA in a year or 
two?! /, IT'S THE APP FROM HELL!!!!... And there's no substitute :( /
I copied intl.cpl, went regedit, and, used vi on the reg. All 3 worked, but I 
was thinking in the lines of, will a regular user be happy with any of the 
three options should he encounter such a monstrosity, or, a different 
monstrosity which requires a different cpl.
