    Brink, that's what I am doing. I leave the language etc, at the default English US during the install. Then I go into control panel and switch the region to Canada. One of these days I'm going to site down and figure out how to make an autoanswer file for an unattended install.

    Sorry Kerry, I didn't read all of the first page and missed that.

    You might see if disabling app localization in the Store may help any.

    Not to worry, I've done the same thing. You read something in a post, the light bulb comes on, hay I know the answer to that. Then you make a reply without reading though the whole thread. Happens quite a bit I think. For me, it's usually because I take so long typing my post. The region defaulting to United States isn't a big deal to me, more of a pet peeve.
