I have confirmed this. I would appreciate it if someone who has the ability to build BOINC for Windows from GIT Master or the 7.16 branch could test this on Windows with the newest source files. This will help us figure out where the problem is.

Cheers,

I'm not seeing the problem on master / Win10.
I set the language to French, started the Manager,
and it launched the client successfully.

I have built v7.16.9 (properly, from the tag rather than from the branch), and can confirm that the 'delayed start when language other than English' bug is not present in the Windows build. As is only to be expected, now you've tracked it down to a Mac-specific library file. But I have the build running, and can use it to check other build features as needed.
