Visual BasicInternational Package and Deployment Kit
The International Package and Deployment Kit (IPDK) is a collection of resources and tools that allows developers to produce and distribute localized applications using any language version of Visual Basic. It includes a set of localized, redistributable files for each supported language, localized files for use with the Package and Deployment Wizard (PDWizard), and some tools to automatically repackage your application into another language and change the Locale ID (LCID) of compiled Visual Basic .exe, .dll and .ocx files.
The IPDK is designed to solve some of the problems encountered by developers who create programs in multiple languages. Should a program be localized, certain error messages and setup dialogs may still appear in the same language as the language version of Visual Basic that the program was compiled in. One reason is that each language version of Visual Basic doesn't ship all the language versions of the Visual Basic resources. Secondly, if any localized application is compiled on a given language version of Visual Basic, the application's .exe, .dll, and .ocx files will still call the runtime resources corresponding to the language of the compiler. The set of redistributable files included in the IPDK provides a solution to fix these issues.
