Language Encoding - No Autodetect Available


Hi All,



While running the policy deployment wizard for webservices , we do not get an autodetect option for Application Language. In this case which option is to be chosen ? (attaching a screenshot of the gui with options listed by asm)

    for more accuracy, you can open the web application in IE and right click on screen and point to encoding to list the language.
