    Default language problems

    Hi,
    really simple problem:
    My mothertongue is English, I have an English language OS. I live in Germany. I have a German keyboard. Why can't I install Google Earth in English????? The "download assistant" doesn't assist, it takes over, and there are no options to change the language (as far as I can find out). Trying to contact the crowd at Google has resulted in Zip. Nada. Nichts. Nothing. Frustrated of Munich

    I wonder if you aren't pulling the install file off of a server in Germany and its only option is German?

    Try following the link from this GEH page, see if it still installs in German.

    Hi Appletom, Thanks, haven't tried the download you suggested, but even if you log onto Google.co.uk, it downloads the same "assistant" and I get German again. I'll try when I get a chance.

    If you go up in the upper bar left you see Tools.

    Then you follow this direction: Tools -> Optionen -> Allgemein.

    In the following window you see Sprache. Go there and change to English, Then Restart.

    That should work.
