First of all, you have to know the locale names for Windows;
they differ from the locale names on Unix. In addition, Windows
installations support only a subset of the locales support in
Windows in general. The only "cure" is to install a different
Windows product. E.g. if you find you are lacking an east-asian
locale, it might be that you need to install an east-asian edition
of Windows, or a multi-lingual edition.
