Sterling GIS/SI maps and Windows locale

If your OS is Windows and you’re using some “exotic” system locale (for example, it’s Russian on my laptop) you might have problems uploading your maps to GIS/SI. “Your compiled map file is invalid. Please try again.”:

It’s a known issue, I had it with GIS 4.0 and I have it with SI 5.4.2. On IBM Support site they call it “The Regional and Language Settings” but actually it’s “System locale”. To fix this problem you’ll need to change your system locale to “English (United States)” for example and then re-compile your map(s).
