I have installed a language pack for Microsoft Office 2010 in order to be able to spell check another language. Now the Event Log messages for Microsoft Office are appearing in that language.

The language of the exception message is determined by the Visual Studio Tools for Office runtime language. For instance, if the end user computer has the Japanese language pack installed, the exception message is written to the event log in Japanese.

However, I only want the language pack to apply to Proofing (spelling, grammar). I want Event Log message to appear in English. How can I change this?
