PRB: Can't translate the captions of buttons in message boxes

This "bug report" comes in from time to time:

"When a user clicks Cancel and the 'Exit Setup?' message box is displayed, the Yes/No buttons are always in English!"

That isn't entirely accurate. The button captions are in the same language as Windows itself. So if the user is running an English edition of Windows, they will see English button captions.

This is normal behavior for any application that displays message boxes using the MessageBox() function. The function offers no provision for customizing the button captions.
