Since I don't have Windows 7 at hand,
I can only speculate what is going wrong.

SteelBytes packed their SBAppLocale
with their own exe packer (exe32pack 1.44).
Maybe, the code modification (i.e. extraction)
is no longer that simple with win7.

Sadly, there is no reference to the packer
tool on their homepage anymore. I guess
that means they are no longer developing it.
