I found that most of the software by Microsoft contains a 1033 folder.
Is there any relation of the folder with Microsoft? Does it contain a special type of data?

IIRC 1033 is some internal code for American English - so you will see directories with different numeric names in internationalised versions of the software.

Edit: I do RC - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/0h88fahh lists 1033 as the "Locale ID" for US English.

This is the folder that contains localization resources. 1033 is English, as windows is available in different languages. If you're intersted here is a page showing the language codes
