Language elements in Ccleaner

Recommended Posts

I would like to suggest that CCleaner should only install the language element that corresponds to the language selected during the install.

 

At present we see a folder in C:\Program Files\CCleaner\Lang, which contains 55+ .dll modules.

 

Each module is between 25 and 70 KB; totalling disk-usage of 3+ MB ...

 

Can we make that leaner and meaner?

 

TIA

Hi Luke.

 

I see your point, and I always make a point of deleting manually all unnecessary language files from any program.

 

The trouble is, Piriform software has options within it's software to change the language after install, and in multi computer environments this option may be used. Removing language files during installation would remove optional languages from the drop down language setting menu, making it's presence kinda useless.

 

That's my take on it, and I can't really see this change being made by Piriform.

 

Hope that helps, or even makes sense.

:)

If you use the English version it's safe to delete the whole Lang folder after CCleaner is installed.

You can also delete the dll files which don't correspond with your language

Yes, and CCleaner can also do this for the user by adding in the unwanted .dll files.

 

1. In CCleaner go into: 'Options > Include' and add them.

2. In the main CCleaner screen under the 'Cleaner' tab then scroll down to 'Advanced', and finally tick 'Custom Files and Folders'.
