If you have Windows 95 or Windows 98, you can change the language setting by going to Control Panel-->Regional Settings. After you've installed WoG, you can change it back to German.

If you have another Windows (XP or whatever), I'm not sure where the setting is but I'm sure you could look it up in Windows Help or find someone else who knows that version of Windows and can help you.

Be sure to fully uninstall (and remove all folders) and reboot before reinstalling Heroes and WoG.

I did a bit of checking myself and I don't believe it's necessary to reinstall XP in English. From what I can see, all you only need to do is go to Regional Settings in Control Panel, change the language to US English, reboot and then install.

After you've installed, change the language setting back. I don't believe it's essential to actually convert the OS language to being English, just changing the regional setting temporarily so that the install will work correctly.

Try it! :-)

As for copying the installed files -- I have a feeling that's not likely to work correctly. I think the files have to be installed properly on each indivdiual computer to work, but I could be wrong. In any case, in order to send them to someone  both people would need to have emails that can handle very large files and most email mailboxes won't, or else send tons of little files I guess, or else find another way to send them (through an IM program or direct connection of some sort  or whatever). But seriously, I'm doubtful that it would work properly that way anyway. Changing the language setting is much more likely to work.

It doesn't have to be US English. Australian English worked fine for me.
