Will do, this weekend at the latest. Matthias did a preliminary test on Win 7.
I learned that in German BUILTIN is VORDEFINIERT :)
I wonder if the translation is a Win 7 feature or if has been there all the time.


Hmm.... That's news to me. I have access to many different iso's for both Vista and Windows 7 that are language native in various other languages through my Technet subscription. If it is needed I could probably go and get the many different names that BUILTIN goes by. That is of course unless there is a more dynamic way of determining it.

No need. Corinna's implementation takes a language agnostic approach. :-)
