      Description

      Feedback from Sverre Moe <sverre.moe@gmail.com>:

      It should be possible to provide localized strings to the Windows installer
      with jpackage.

      WiX supports building localized installers through the use of language
      files that include localized strings.
      https://wixtoolset.org/documentation/manual/v3/howtos/ui_and_localization/make_installer_localizable.html

      There are three localization resources for Windows in jpackage.
      Though there is only one String in those three localization files,
      "message.install.dir.exist", all in English and there are more Strings in
      English in the main.wxs file that are not localized.
      MsiInstallerStrings_en.wxl
      MsiInstallerStrings_ja.wxl
      MsiInstallerStrings_zh_CN.wxl

      These could be customized by providing an application_en.wxl or
      application_es.wxl, or any other language to the resource directory.
      Perhaps also allow for further customization by providing an
      application.wxs to the resource directory to use instead of the main.wxs.
