invalid or unsupported code page type

I have a web service that's called from a desktop application.  For all but one user of the application, it works perfectly.  This user continually gets an ArgumentException thrown with "invalid or unsupported code page type" error on each call to the web service.  I've searched the web now for several hours and cannot find a solution.  Any ideas?

RE: invalid or unsupported code page type

SOAP headers can optionally contain Locale information:


  <!-- message payload goes here -->

So I would ask that user to tell you what their Locale preferences are set to in their browser (since it's likely that they're being picked up from there when they make a request).

In IE7, you go to Tools | Internet Options | Languages
