I guess you need to call setlocale instead of (or in addition to) putenv?

win7 64+VS2008
I wrote a simple gettext test procedures are as follows:
#include <stdio.h>
#include <locale.h>
#include "libintl.h"
#include <Windows.h>
#pragma comment(lib,"libintl.lib")
#define _(S) gettext(S)
#define PACKAGE "hello"
int main(int argc, char **argv)
char tmp[51]= {0};
int t;
char path[MAX_PATH]= {0};
_snprintf(tmp, 51, "LANG=%s", argv[1]);
bindtextdomain(PACKAGE, "locale");
return 0;
And then build Hello.Po, translation in the generated Hello.Mo file separately
Placed in the following location:
Then you run Hello.exe zh_TW (Hello.exe ja Hello.exe en_US) show all Chinese instead of the appropriate language。
Copy respectively. under \Debug\locale\zh_CN\LC_MESSAGES\ was able to copy the appropriate language is displayed。
Is unable to switch the interface language, toggle the display of all Chinese,why is this?
