Problem: When opening Corel PaintShop Photo Pro X3 you receive an error dialog stating DetectLanguage() Failure. Exiting. This bug has been duplicated on both the 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Windows 7.

Solution: Add the Lang registry string to the registry as described below.

Launch RegEdit.

If you are running a 32-bit version of Windows, navigate to the following location:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Corel\Paint Shop Pro\13\Installer]

If you are running a 64-bit version of Windows, navigate to the following location:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Corel\Paint Shop Pro\13\Installer]

Create a new REG_SZ Value named Lang.

Set the Value to the appropriate Language Code.
     Example: For English use the value EN.
