Where was that Locale Builder again? The Platform SDK ain't telling....

The other day, Tom pointed me at a broken link in the Platform SDK documentation:


When I go to
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms776342.aspx and click on the Microsoft Locale Builder link (href="http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=12adffc8-a4da-424b-8d62-17c1e0ffc116&DisplayLang=en"), it takes me to “We’re sorry, but we were unable to service your request.”  I guess this means the link out-of-date?  I’m pretty sure the locale builder is still online somewhere, but this topic does not point to its new location.

I might be wrong, but I think that was the original link from way back before when it was the expired beta version.

The genuine link (as I mentioned first in Return of the Mack^H^H^H^HMicrosoft Locale Builder!) is here (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=96654), which will expand to the actual link, and then if something moves it can be updated so the links don't have to change.

I also forward it on to the people who are tracking updates and fixes to the documentation. But for now I figured I'd mention the issue up here, too....
