[update] The same seems to apply to other languages as well. Replace the capitalised locale with lower case. For example, "De" -> "de"; "Es" -> "es".

here is what my windows application event log says:

also notice unless they rolled us back to 1.0.0.0 we are at 1.2.1 and they don't even bother changing their game's release info.
