If installed system has not national settings like time zone, keyboard type or currency configured by default during system installation, it must be done before user start complain on it . So it can be done via windows gui, and command line which is easier to repeat on each PC via GP or batch file.

Settings can be set by executing command line :

control.exe intl.cpl,,/f:”P:\IT\lang\localepl.xml”

where „P:\IT\lang\localepl.xml” is localization of the file which contains  code :

<gs:GlobalizationServices xmlns:gs="urn:longhornGlobalizationUnattend">
<gs:UserList>
<gs:User UserID="Current" CopySettingsToDefaultUserAcct="true" CopySettingsToSystemAcct="true"/>
</gs:UserList>
<!--Location Preferences-->
<gs:LocationPreferences>
<gs:GeoID Value="191"/>
</gs:LocationPreferences>
<gs:InputPreferences>
<!--pl-PL--><gs:InputLanguageID Action="add" ID="0415:00000415" Default="true"/>
<!--pl-PL--><gs:InputLanguageID Action="add" ID="0415:00000415"/>
</gs:InputPreferences>
<!-- user locale -->
 <gs:UserLocale>
  <gs:Locale Name="pl-PL" SetAsCurrent="true" ResetAllSettings="true"/>
 </gs:UserLocale>
<!-- system locale -->
<gs:SystemLocale Name="pl-PL" />
</gs:GlobalizationServices>
