No longer possible to change default language?

Michael Knudsen

Hello forum,

- I'm working with a new DW9.14.3 and I find it strange that I no longer can change the default language?  Is this per design or a bug?

Instead if changing the default flag, just change the region and name to what you desire.

We made this change to prevent data issues - because most solutions do not have all things defined in their additional languages - so chaning a second language to defauilt where products, groups and all kind of setup does not exist, will cause bad data. Default language should only change during initial setup and that basically means just changing the regional code...

You can still do it in the database though keeping the above in mind. Also in 9.13 and 9.14 we have changed a lot of code to be more resillient to bad data, so the problem should be smaller.
