Default Multilanguage software

Hi All,

        I am working at a software that will use multilanguage interface. Now my requirement is to get list of languages installed in windows xp. So that i can alter the languages in order..

i think i should explain.....

in windows Xp we can install multiple languages using the region and languages icons. and we can swicth between languages using some shortcut key most probably ALT+SHIFT...

Now i want to find out that at the current moment how many languages are installed in windows xp and what is the current language seleted.... and this all i need to do through programming in C#... if any one has done some job like this... kindly help....

public void GetLanguages()


// Gets the list of installed languages.

foreach (InputLanguage lang in InputLanguage.InstalledInputLanguages)


//textBox1.Text += lang.Culture.EnglishName + '\n';

MessageBox.Show(Convert.ToString(lang.Culture.Engl ishName));



private void button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)




it will show all the languages currently installed........
