  1. Dear Dries,

    I am strugling a bit with how to use the oobe.xml per country. We are working in 30 countries and want to support 4 languages per country. I try to keep the xml content to the minimum (I actually only want to see the 4 languages as choice in OOBE but because of setupcomplete.cmd and wifi the installation hangs on “just a moment” and when I use the oobe.xml files and a wifi connection xml, the setup does continue except for the language choise in oobe.
    What I have now is a folder structure in oobe\info where I have folders per country code. (23 for bangladesh, 28 for benin etc.) and in there 4 folders per language and in those folders an oobe.xml file and a eual.rtf file. The contect of the oobe.xml is



    and only the location is changed per country folder. Why is my language choise not showing?
    Thanks in advance
