How to change the Visual Studio Installer language

Some weeks ago I installed Visual Studio 2019 in a certain language, not English, great idea? Not really, in case of problem it’s of course more complicated to found information (despite the really good official Microsoft Documentation).

So I thought to change the Language. So far so good, run the setup, install the language Pack and Visual Studio 2019 is now in English, except the installer.

OK is not a big deal to keep the installer in another language, but I really wanted to have it in English too and yes, without to reinstall anything 🙂

Solution? Pretty easy, just edit the Visual Studio Installer shortcut in the start menu to look similar to this:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\Installer>”C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\Installer\vs_installer.exe” –locale “en-US”


That’s it 🙂
