Are you sure that any Windows version is equipped to switch to any culture? Or am I doing it wrong? I try:
CultureInfo culture = CultureInfo.CreateSpecificCulture("fr-FR");
CultureInfo.DefaultThreadCurrentCulture = culture;
Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = culture;
attrnames = new string[400];
Folder rFolder = GetShell32NameSpaceFolder(_sysRoot);
for (int attrNo = 1; attrNo < 400; attrNo++) {
  string attrName = rFolder.GetDetailsOf(0, attrNo).Trim();
  attrnames[attrNo] = attrName.Empty() ? null : attrName;
}
- as you can see, I both set DetfaultThreadCurrentCulture and CurrentThread.CurrentCulture. The table is still filled with English attribute names, rather than French. I sort of doubt that any Windows installation can take on any culture from any place in the world - it may be possible to install it, but it is not necessarily install it.

My immediate need right now is when I have detected that a file is a symlink / junction, to know programmatically what the link refers to. If in Windows Explorer display the Properties of the file, it comes up as "Target:" in the "Shortcut" tab. In my current Win10 version, I can obtain the target path by

GetDetailsOf(196, );

- I find "Link target" in element 196 of the above table. In other Windows versions, the index is different, so I initialize the table at startup and search for the string "Link target" when I need to look up that attribute number.

I have not found any alternative way to get hold of the link target. (I could use a command shell, giving a dir command and parse the output - but what are the commands, and what shoult I look for, in a Polish language command shell?)

Later, I will make use of more of the attributes not available through the basic attributes, such as the media description attributes (e.g. Duration, Frame width, Frame rate, ...) or author info. If there is another (language/version independent) way of obtaining the target of a symbolic link, I would be helped in the short term, but in the long term, I would need programmatic access to a whole lot of these attributes, preferably all those that can be displayed as an Explorer column.

This information is saved in the file system. I would be extremely surprised if each attribute value is tagged with a language specific attribute name. I would also be surprised if they are tagged with the index I see and use through GetDetailsOf - then, any Windows update would require a re-tagging of every file on every disk, and I couldn't take that disk over to an older version OS without loosing the attributes. Which identification mechanism is used in the NTFS metadata to recognize, say, the link target, or the video frame rate? Is there any way I can ask by the same ID that is used internally within the NTFS file system?
