Avanquest Software does not needs any introductory words. They are famous for their software profile. Third parties are also using their software providing services to sell software. One famous PC utility from Avanquest is Fix-It Utilities. Previously, we have shared Fix-It Utilities 10 Essentials. Now we are going to share its second latest release Fix-It Utilities 11 which is not latest but just previous than latest.
1: Whenever using Fix-It to clean Windows Registry, use it with caution. Being a registry cleaner it is found aggressive and you may have some problem running other software like MS Office Suite.
2: The installation is in German language. But after installation, the interface is in English. In fact, it is German and English mix interface. Tools are named and described in English but their application windows are in German. Total Convert to English can be found at the end of article.

Convert To English: It took me many hours to figure it out the method to convert Fix-It Utilities 11 Essentials from German to English. And I expect that you will honor my efforts crediting my work with the link to this article from your website. (If you do not want to link me back, no problem. Just enjoy it.)
There are two methods to change the interface in English. At least, one should work. I have tested both and worked fine.
Method I: a: Download Fix-It 11 Essentials (English) from HERE and install. Copy the whole installation folder to some other place. Uninstall it.
b: Now download and install Fix-It 11 Essentials (German). Register with license as guided above in Installation section.
c: Now copy Fix-It.exe from copied folder to installation folder of Fix-It 11 Essetials (German). Run it and you will see everything in English. Check the About and it will show registered.
Method II: Follow a and b from Method I.
c: Download and Install Fix-It 11 (German). Register it with the license which you have recieved (see section Registration).
d: Replace all files in the installation folder with previously copied files from English installation of Fix-It 11. Run it and it will be shown in English with authenticated registration. Better to login as Admin when copying files. Do not worry if some files refused to copy.
