Vmware tools update in wrong language

I'm have a Windows XP Swedish guest and I have recently moved from Vmware server 1.08 to Vmware Player 3.14. I now want to upgrade the vmware tools to the lastest version. I chose "Virtual Machine" button at the top and then "Upgrade Vmware tools..." and when the installation start it's in the language Germany. How do I change that to English or Swedish?

I had this same issue on a 2000 p2v and it was spanish.  I went into the control panel, regional options and everything looked correct, locale was set to English (United States)  below language was set to  Western Europe and United States, but when I checked a second launguage it popped up the locale box and that was set to Spanish, changed to English (united states) applied, unchecked the additional launguage, rebooted and the next attempt to install VMware tools worked correctly.  Also found that my Office toolbar was set to spanish.
