Will HyperSizer run in other countries?
« on: May 05, 2008, 02:53:53 PM »
HyperSizer has been successfully tested to run in other countries such as France, Italy, Japan, and Korea using XP/2000 with the latest service pack. The latest service pack for Windows 2000 can be obtained from the Microsoft website, or from the Windows Update feature of Internet Explorer. At the time of this writing, service pack 4 of Windows 2000 was successfully tested.

Running HyperSizer with your preferred country OS installation (therefore a non-United States installation) is possible and requires only a slight change to your system. As an example, if you are in Italy, we suggest you install the Italian version of XP/2000. However, before you start HyperSizer, you must make a slight modification to the regional settings of your computer. There are two options. First, you can change the regional settings to "English (United States)" and then HyperSizer will work fine. A preferable option for you may be to choose Italy as your regional settings. In this case, you will need to change the comma to a decimal separator. Open the control panel, and double click the applet, "Regional Options" ("Opzioni internazionali") and click on the "Numbers" ("Numeri") tab. In the dropdown box labeled, "Decimal Symbol" ("Separatore decimale") change the symbol from a comma (,) to a period (.) Next in the dropdown list next to "Digit grouping symbol" ("symbollo raggruppamento cifre") change the symbol from a period (.) to a comma (,) Press the "Apply" ("Applica") button.

Metric and English units are fully supported with version 3.4 and up.
