Set mandatory Portal language in SAP Portal 7.4 for AD users



We have Users accessing portal who are in Active directory. The language field in User profile is blank for some users.

As a result the IE broswser language is being used for those users. This is affecting launching of backends for languages which are not installed in ECC,BW etc,.

I changed the file to have mandatory language as EN . under the path


However after server was restarted , this language is not taking

precedence and if user has no language set in profile and Internet

browser has any language say CA-EN , then when user opens SAP GUI they

get error.

Since the users are from AD , I am not sure if this property works.

Can you help me ?
