Can anyone please tell me if it is possible toselect the language of choice for installing applications on a PC running Vista?

I have a French PC, with a French version of Vista, and my problem is that all multi-language applications are automatically being installed in French - and I would really like them to be in English.

I know for a fact that the Garmin Training Centre is available in English, because a) I'm downloading it from the original US site, and b) I know plenty of people who use it, in English, in the UK.

This is really starting to annoy me now...

Thanks for any help

This is controlled by the installer of the program. Some of them will give you options. Others won't.
There is no such thing as "a French version of Vista". What you really mean is all the menus, text, regional and dialogue boxes are in French. It still came from the US at the end of the day.
