Configuring a Language for the Stand-Alone CommCell Console

You can configure the stand-alone CommCell Console to use a specific language.

If you want to select from a list of languages when you log on to the CommCell Console, see Enabling the Language Selection for the Stand-Alone CommCell Console.

Before You Begin

  • Verify that you have the correct version of the JRE (Java runtime Environment) as stated in System Requirements - CommCell Console as a Stand-Alone Application.
  • Obtain the ISO language and country codes for the supported language in which you would like to run the application. (For information on supported languages, see Support Information - Languages.)

    Some commonly used ISO language and country codes are:

    • English: -Duser.language=en -Duser.country=US
    • Chinese: -Duser.language=zh -Duser.country=CN
    • German: -Duser.language=de -Duser.country=DE
    • Spanish: -Duser.language=es -Duser.country=MX


  1. On your desktop, find the CommCell Console stand-alone application shortcut.

    Tip: Right-click the shortcut and make a copy of the shortcut before making changes.

  2. Right-click on the shortcut, and select Properties.
  3. In the Target field, add the appropriate ISO language and country codes in front of -jar.


    To start the application in French, type the following into the Target field:

    "C:\Program Files\Java\java_version\bin\javaw.exe" -Duser.language=fr -Duser.country=FR -jar cv.jar commserve_host.company.com 8401 -oemid= 1


    • java_version is the Java version, for example, jreXX.xx
    • commserve_host.company.com is the CommServe host name
  4. Click OK to save the changes.
  5. Double-click the shortcut to open the CommCell Console.
