He means that if it''s in Chinese, there''s a good chance it''s a cracked version you might have downloaded from somewhere.

Second, I think your dad would know whether or not you can read Chinese, and whether or not he was buying a Chinese version. It should be indicated somewhere, and he was in Taiwan anyway.

Third, the reason they sell different versions of the software is because you can''t change the language from within the software itself. That would raise some intense localization issues, especially with such a complex application as the Visual Studio .NET 2003 IDE.

Lastly, what''s with the presumption that Asians should know Chinese?

oicic, thanks for your replies!

I can read chinese but not that well, so it takes more time for me to choose the menus and create files. I was just wondering about this because if i can turn language into english then it''ll be easier for me to follow the tutorials i found on the internet.

my dad don''t know jack about computers, he just bought it without thinking that much

as for downloading cracked version, i woudn''t do that to waste my bandwidth limit and get cut off internet.

but i guess i can always get my dad to return it when he goes bak to taiwan in 2 weeks.
