Error: Language dll 1033 on Windows 7
« on: December 14, 2011, 07:44:53 PM »
Hi,

I recently bought a new pc, I installed Avast 5 on it but every time I start my pc I get the following message: Error: could not detect language dll [1033\UILangRes.dll]
I use the Dutch version of Avast, which I selected while installing.

I looked it up on a forum and discovered that uninstalling might solve the problem, but it won't uninstall either... I cannot remove the files nor start Avast from the menu Start.

So, I'm stuck, anyone who can help me uninstall or tell me how to fix the error?

Thanks!
Wouter

OBS: and you must uninstall any previous used or preinstalled AV before installing avast
it is also recomended to clean out any leftovers with a removal tool

Just download anew the same stable version you previously downloaded, but only from the official website of avast.

Maybe it would be better to download the English original version, and install that. Then reboot, select the new language in the avast main GUI, save and reboot again.

This is probable going to solve it, and a full uninstall is probable not necessary.

Interesting...the numbered folder is related to the language, and 1033 is English.
I believe 1043 is Dutch.

I wonder why it is trying to load the English dll instead...(my best guess would be to load some English components...)

Either way, ady4um's suggestion to install the English version first may prevent this in the future (if it is there, then it can be used ;))

Pondus, I recently dl the newest Avast, so probably is 6.
I tried the uninstall links, both, but since i cannot open Avast (because of the error) I cannot disable its self defence..
On the other hand, I did remove all other AV before installing Avast.

I'll try Ady4um's idea, I'll let you know!

Thanks Guys!

Yes, 1033 is the default, English.

The reason I suggest installing first the English version and then (after reboot), select the alternative language is:

1_ that's the dll language requested in the error message;
2_ some dialog (or whatever other part of avast) may lack of the appropriate translation (specially newish sections / additions), so the default is to use the English text.

After installing the English version (downloaded anew from the official site), reboot, and go to avast main GUI -> settings -> language -> select the language you want -> install -> save settings -> reboot -> test and report back.
ADD/REMOVE PROGS -> avast -> CHANGE/REMOVE -> REPAIR & REBOOT

So I did, After rebooting my pc (because I had tried, but failed to remove avast, I had to reboot) I got a message in French(??) that my product key had expired. I ignored it since I was going to reinstall.
(Now that I had Avast opened, I could deactivate the auto-protect, but didn't)

I reinstalled the English version, withou any problem.
I rebooted and got the notification again, in French.
When I opened Avast it was partially in French, partially in English.
I installed the Dutch package and rebooted.
After rebooting i could not select another language in Avast.
I reinstalled the Dutch package and then I could select it as A language, no reboot.
I renewed my key right after.

Now it seems to be working just fine, in Dutch.

Thanks again for the help!

Hi Wouter  :)

Although your problem seems to be solved, it is still important to follow Pondus' third advise from his first post here ;)

Greetz, Red.

Hey Red,

You refer to cleaning out leftovers with a removal tool?
Any advice in a tool that would get the job done? (I'm kinda carefull downloading stuff onto my pc, so I'd like to have one I can trust)

Thanks for the advice!
Wouter

Which is the same as what Pondus posted, but seems that the OP didn't "catch" it.

I got that allright, but it'll just remove Avast from my pc.. Or does it as well remove any other leftover?

After removing avast with that tool ,check for any left overs of Avast in Program files,Application data (program data) and also for other security softwares (if you had).
