It worked perfectly for me.
Please close and open the Access Connection GUI after applying the registry patch.

Confirmed, it doesn't work.
I had been still on AC 4.40, though System update offered me to install 5.02,
which obvioulsly didn't work.
As the visual appearance of AC 5.02 under XP hasn't changed to older 4.x release
I wasn't aware of this.
Looks like we'll have to wait until Lenovo releases some kind of admin guide.

You could try this:
a) figure out the 2-letter abbreviation for the language that you are currently running in
b) figure out the 2-letter abbreviation for the language that you want the GUI to be in
Then go to C:\Program Files\ThinkPad\ConnectUtilities\Res\ (the default install directory for AC on my T42 running Win2k) and copy all of the files in the b) subdirectory into the a) subdirectory. This will overwrite all the files in the a) subdirectory, so be sure to make a backup first. Then reboot and AC's GUI should be in your desired language. For example, I have my T42 running Win2k in Japanese region, but I prefer the AC GUI to be in English. So I switch back to US region to install AC, then I go to: C:\Program Files\ThinkPad\ConnectUtilities\Res\US\ and copy all of the files there (*.dll and *.chm) into the JP\ directory. Then I switch back to Japanese region, and after rebooting, the AC GUI is still in English. I have been doing this for AC versions from 4.23 through 5.02 and it's always worked, but YMMV.
Note that this method may cause you to lose some functionality if AC in one region offers extra options compared to another, but I haven't seen anything like that so far.

In version 5.61 changing overwriting the files in the Res/<default language> folder does not change the language of the main window, only the systray menu and the different subwindows in AC. (strange)
