Dear listmembers,

I was under the impression that all localized strings in all Microsoft
products could be found in one of the Excel sheets on the following site
(Microsoft Glossaries):

However, when I checked for strings such as "Welcome to the Found New
Hardware Wizard" or "Search for the best driver in these locations" I
can't find these. Actually, I can't find any of the rather common
strings that are used in Wizards, driver installations etc.

Surely these strings must have been localized? Any hints where I can
find them?

Best regards,
