Instructions of applying translation patch:

It is assumed that you have created a working directory along with a desktop shortcut of Open Contacts.

When applying the translation patch, Open Contacts will copy directory "locale" into the program directory (by default under directory Program Files) of Open Contacts. As this directory may be protected against unauthorized uses, you may need to to run Open Contacts as administrator or power user.

On Windows Vista, right-click on the shortcut of Open Contacts, and execute "Run as Administrator". After Open Contacts is launched, execute [Main menu -> Tools -> Apply Translation Patch], and locate the zip file downloaded. If you don't run the program as Administrator, Open Contacts will prompt you to elevate when copying files to the protected program directory.

On Windows XP or Windows 2000, if you run Windows as normal user (LUA mode), please right-click on the shortcut, and select "Run as" with a power user account or administrator account.  After Open Contacts is launched, run [Main menu -> Tools -> Apply Translation Patch].
