So can you just send me the file or something?
Due to licensing restrictions I can not distribute the file from this site.


Will the Japanese version of winnls.dll work on an English version of Windows?
I've tried it on a few different systems and never had a single problem.


I have the file, how do I install it?
Simply copy in into your windows\system32 folder (or winnt\system32). It is a non-self-registering .dll file so do not run regsvr32 on it.
