Windows Vista Microsoft Locale Builder Tool

We're working on a tool, the Microsoft Locale Builder, for Windows Vista to help users create their own custom locales.  This will help those users that need a tool rather than a managed API to create a custom locale.

I'll post a link to the public beta when it becomes availalbe.  The beta will require Windows Vista since this is a Vista tool and custom locales work on Vista.  The .msi file in the Klingon example was created using this tool.
