How to: Change the Publish Language for a ClickOnce Application


The new home for Visual Studio documentation is Visual Studio 2017 Documentation on docs.microsoft.com.

The latest version of this topic can be found at How to: Change the Publish Language for a ClickOnce Application.

When publishing a ClickOnce application, the user interface displayed during installation defaults to the language and culture of your development computer. If you are publishing a localized application, you will need to specify a language and culture to match the localized version. This is determined by the Publish language property for your project.

The Publish language property can be set in the Publish Options dialog box, accessible from the Publish page of the Project Designer.
