The first thing to do is to check the installation folder of the application. Right click Dev C++ and go to Properties > Open file location. Browse the folder and check the Lang folder as well. If the English file is there, then locate the executable file for DEV C++ and use Run as Administrator. This will give the application the full access to use the language file from the target folder.
