Solution :

  • Locate the following 2 files [HierarchyChart.xap] and [MediaPlayer.xap] in [14 hive]\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\ClientBin

  • Backup the 2 files first, to allow rollback.
  • The [.xap] file is basically a compressed folder (Archive), so open the file using a compression tool like [7-Zip].(Download from here)
  • Open the [AppManifest.xaml] file using notepad, make sure that you open the file from the archive to make sure that the changes will be saved to the archive as well.
  • Change the [RunTimeVersion] to [5.0.61118.0].

  • Save the [AppManifest.xaml] (Inside the archive).
  • Open your browser > Make sure that you clear the browser cache > Navigate to My Site > The organization Browser should now shown in Arabic.

Enjoy 🙂
