Changing the locale of OK button in a MessageBox in InstallShield

We have a Basic MSI installer project. On a certain dialog, we do validations of data provided by user and then throw appropriate message using the MessageBox().

Now when the MessageBox comes up, it comes up with the message we want and an OK button.

We have an issue w.r.t the locale of this OK button. When tested on English, French windows 2008 machine we can get the OK button, where OK is in English. When we use the same installer on a Spanish windows machine then the same OK button comes up with OK in Spanish.

I'm not able to figure out what's the cause of this behaviour. Any hint/help would be of great help.

In your localized string tables try adding or editing the value IDS_OK with the appropriate OK value for the language.

Currently we have only English (United States) as the locale chosen for Installation localization. How is it so that only for Spanish OS its changing the locale of the "OK" button and not for german and French.
