I've been getting compiler errors when using some locales in an ASP.NET site on my development machine, while everything works fine on other machines.
I was trying to make my site support Bosnian (Cyrillic script). According to the page at
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms172470(VS.80).aspx the name to use is "bs-Cyrl-BA", or code 0x201A. But using either of these results I get a compiler error "Culture name 'bs-cyrl-ba' / ID 8218 (0x201A) is not supported."
I've also tried Bosnian with Latin script, and Serbian with both Latin and Cyrillic script, and those all work great.
I found a page for selecting different locales at
http://www.jazon.net/preplogic/chapter9/listing9_1.aspx, and I notice the list is different from when I download the source and compile it on my own computer. Some of the locales I am missing on my machine:

Not sure but maybe you need to install that windows local in your machine, where your application is deployed or developed!
I never heard about installing locales! How does one do that????

Maybe I mistaken the use of word install, so try to change the system local itself.
I wondef if the Cyrillic script is considered complex script as Chineas and Japanea?! because if it is so then you'll need to installa support for complex script. you can do that from regional settings.
I never worked with locals, except in arabic, but they are supported by .Net framework and don't need to be generated. just like all other cultures.
