Reports that a UE4 project launched on French or German Windows 7 is not automatically correctly setting the culture from the OS' setting.

Can probably install French or German support for a copy of Windows 7 installed in English, but I'm not sure if that's the exactly the same environment as buying a French or German copy of Windows 7 to begin with.

Have not been able to test here do to lack of French / German Windows 7

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Obtain a Windows 7 computer with French or German language
  2. Launch a Native English (or another language besides French or German) UE4 project with French or German support, but no explicit setting in the [Internationalization] section of DefaultEngine.ini for which culture to use
  3. Confirm that the language is not automatically detected
