For Windows2000 you can create a file in Notepad containing the following:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00




You can fill in any language you want as default language here, just make sure you use the official Countrycode and the supporting *.MOR or *.LEX file is existing in the GroupWise directory

Save this file as "spell.reg"

Doubleclick the file you have just created....
