Language is not supported on server when you run WSS wizard

Postby guest » Mon May 19, 2008 10:51 am

You receive "The language is not supported on the server" when you run the SharePoint
Configuration Wizard after install the Swedish language pack.


Regarding to the order of running the SharePoint Configuration Wizard, if you plan to install any language packs, it's better to run the wizard after all the
language packs are installed. If you install the language packs after the initial Configuration Wizard, you should run the Configuration Wizard again. It should
also be fine.

I notice that you have applied the language registry fix, do you mean exactly that you add the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\12.0\InstalledLanguages
Name Type Registry data
1033 REG_SZ 12.0.4518.1016
1053 REG_SZ 12.0.4518.1017

I've just finished a new installation of WSS 3.0 and then applied the Swedish language pack. The above registry should be there before running the
Configuration Wizard. Please add the above registries if your server does not have yet, and then run the Configuration Wizard via command-line:

1. Logon the WSS 3.0 server.
2. Open a Command Prompt window, and locate to the following directory:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN
3. Run the following command:
psconfig -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -wait -force

If the problem persists, please send me the upgrade.log and PSCDiagnostics log located at C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web
Server
Extensions\12\LOGS. My e-mail address is v-rozhao@microsoft.com.

I also enclose the detailed steps of uninstalling WSS 3.0 for your further reference.

We found old wss database data and logfiles under the SYSMI folder for the
sql2005 embedded version. After having deleted these old configuation
databases etc, it worked all fine!
