    3. under "Advanced" tab, change the "Language for non-Unicode programs" to "Japanese" like following:

So Visual Studio (or the fortran IDE plugin) are "non-Unicode programs"?

This is an ugly hack and inconvenient.

I live and work in JP. I want the regional settings set to Japanese for genuine old non unicode products. But I want to be able to set the language for error messages inside VS to English. I don't expect a modern unicode aware app to use OS settings.
