Multi national currency display possible?

I am using FM 12 advanced on OSX and Windows 7


I have a membership application. It is a 'free' app that is being converted to run with a selectable language interface: German, French, Spanish and English.

This works. (Thanks to Matthew Leering for the layout and script that makes this really easy)


My question is: "Can my distributed runtime application be distributed so that when the user selects the language dropdown, Filemaker will display numeric values using the local users OS regional currency setup? Or, better yet, independent of the language dropdown, just display the currency as setup on the local computer in Mexico, for example?


I compiled my app on a Windows 7 PC and, after changing the settings to Spanish and Mexico, ran my runtime a it still showed U$ currencies.


What am I missing?


Thank you
