Change message language

Hi, how can I change the language of the singleinstance message in the compilation?

"There is already an instance of this program running."


Thank you

Dear, please select 'Windows GUI' type at step 2

Generated exe file does not use 'java' to start, nor 'javaw', but it use 'jvm.dll' to start.

If you don't want the Console window to be visible, please select 'Windows GUI application' at step 2.
