Language Targeting

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

A Language targeting item allows a preference item to be applied to computers or users only if the locale specified in the targeting item is installed on the processing computer. Additional options allow you to restrict the targeting to the user's or computer's locale. If Is Not is selected, it allows the preference item to be applied only if the processing computer's locale does not match the specified locale in the targeting item.

noteNote
A locale is composed of a language and, in some cases, a geographic area in which the language is spoken or the alphabet used. For example, French (Canada) is a locale composed of the language French and the geographic area Canada.

 

Language

The locale that the targeting item compares to the locale of the processing computer.

noteNote
If User or System check boxes are cleared, then the targeting item allows the associated policy item to apply if the specified locale is installed on the processing computer. Use Regional Options from Control Panel to view the list of installed locales.

User

If you select this check box, you restrict the targeting of the item to include the user's locale.

ImportantImportant
This option is disabled in preference items under Computer Configuration.

System

If you select this check box, you restrict the targeting of the item to include the locale of the operating system.

Native

If you select this check box, you restrict the targeting of the item to include the specified locale of the file NTDLL.DLL

Additional considerations

  • To reposition a targeting item within the list of targeting items that you have applied to a preference item, either drag the targeting item to a new position, or select the targeting item and then click the Move Up arrow or Move Down arrow.

  • Preference items are available only in domain-based GPOs.
