Posted By:      Posted Date: September 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi guys, I need to install language pack to WSS3 x64 and it seems like impossible task! First of all a link on this page doesn't work: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsserver/sharepoint/bb400747.aspx   After a while I've found this page: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyId=318D8562-58BD-4329-B1F6-F1941A38BC7F&displaylang=en Looks like it's exectly what I'm looking for but when I try to install it on a server I get  an error message: This product requires a prior installation of a 2007 Microsoft Office system server product. Am I missing something? PS I have WSS 3 x64 with last updates installed on WIndows 2008 R2

Unable to install SP3 on SQL 2005 due to Database Services language being blank

Hi all,   I have an issue that requires me to upgrade to a later SP (currently on RTM), but when I try to install SP3 Database Services cannot be ticked. Upon inspection I see that its reporting "This update requires language ENU.  The language for this product instance MSSQLSERVER is . Download the upadte for langage .", when I check teh Language field to the right it is blank, other parts however are fine and can be upgraded. Can you advise please as I don't know how to manually set the language (which is reported inside SQL itself as English (United Kingdom)) and I cannot un/reinstall. Thanks, John

Which SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack to Install?

I have Windows 2008 Small Business Server Standard Edition.  When I scan for updates I get two different SQL service packs showing up, with the same KB955706 number.  I'm wondering which I should install, or if both, what order to install them in?  The first one is labeled: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 3 The second one is labeled: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition with Advanced Services Service Pack 3 For applications, I have Blackbaud The Financial Edge v7.78 (accounting package for clubs) installed that uses SQL Server 2005 Express Edition for its database engine.  The new upgrade for this software requires SP3 which is why I need to know which service pack to install.  Also, please let me know if there are any tricks to getting the service packs installed on 2008 SBS Standard Edition.  I know sometimes registry settings need to be changed for SQL service packs to be installed properly. Thank you for your help.  

Cant uninstall Framework Language Pack on Windows 7 Professional

Hi,I have Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 installed on a Windows 7 Professional that has been upgraded from a Windows Vista business. I have a Danish Language Pack installed (Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Language Pack SP1 - Danish). This was installed under Vista. Now I have upgraded to Windows 7 Professional where that language pack is unsupported apparantly. I'm trying to get help in a Windows 7 forum to change the OS language but it seems to fail because multiple MUI's is unsupported in Windows 7 Professional. So I hope someone here can help me remove the Language Pack or something like that...When I try to uninstall or reinstall the Language Pack I get an error saying that the OS isn't supported. What I want is to have my exceptions in English - not Danish. I cannot remove the Framework Language Pack using "Windows Installer Clean Up" because it isn't listed. How can I remove this language pack? Or alternatively instruct the Framework to give me Exceptions in the "en-US" localization?--

SQL Server 2008 Express impossible to install.

As part of ARCserve backup r15, SQL Server 2008 Express is to be installed on a windows 2003 sp2 server (french language). All the prerequistes are present (power shell, .NET 3.5, Windows Installer 4.5...). The install fails with an -2147024893 error. I have not found anything conclusive about this error on the net. To get down on the issue I tried to install sql 2008 Express SP1 manually first. It fails with no error, returning to the main installation screen after installing the support files. The SQLSetup.log shows no apparent error but stop abruptly with the following : "Attempting to launch process d:\23ab1738a0f035434457b033\x86\setup100.exe"... as if this attempt was "suspended in the air". I have already tried to uninstall/install .NET 3.5 SP1, PowerShell, Windows Installer 4.5. No previous version of SQL had never been existed on this server. I even run "caspol.exe /machine -reset". I have tried the installation with SQL 2008 Express in english... I made registry cleanups... It's been one week of investigation and for the first time in my career I'm "dry". Is my case desperate ? Thanks   ******************* I enclosed the summary.txt when it's ARCServe r15 which is installing. I notice that "requested action" is "RemoveNode". I suppose it's related to any cluster. But we have not any cluster on the

WSS Language Pack download

I performed a search at technet for "language pack sharepoint" and clicked on the second result: Download details: Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Language Pack  With this language template pack you can create SharePoint sites in languages other than the default language selected at installation. www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=36EE1BF0-652C-4E38-B247-F29B3EEFA048 However, the link is broken. I called Microsoft Support and they said it was working ok, but then said it wasn't working ok and to check back again in 15 minutes. I've been checking for several days now with no luck. Can anyone advise where else I can get the WSS language pack download? (I have WSS SP1, MOSS, MOSS SP1...just need the WSS) Thanks for looking

Uable to successfully install SQL Server 2005 (Express Edition) Service Pack 3 (KB955706)

After repeated attempts, I am unable to install the MSSQL Server 2005 (Express Edition) Service Pack 3 (KB955706).  From Live Update, the installation initializes but then reports that it was unable to install.  The first couple of times I received Error Code 0x65B, but that doesn't come up any longer. I have ACT! Database version 2007 (9.0) and it is unable to access the database to open it because it uses the MSSQL??  Also, there used to be an MSSQL icon below in my system tray, but that no longer appears.  When I reboot it will be on briefly, but then goes away.. MS Customer Support has attempted to help (Case ID SRX1135612820) but now tell me that this is beyond their expertise.  They had me try to reload MMSQL 2005 but no change. Please help! Thanks!!  Terry

Deploy reusable Workflow on SharePoint Farm with other language pack

Hi all, I created a reusable workflow on my development system with no language pack installed. I saved the workflow as a template and saved the generated wsp. After that I added the wsp to a SharePoint farm at out customer (with the dutch language pack installed) and deployed the wps. Everything was looking good, but the WSP didn't creae a feature which I could activate, so I was not able to use the Workflow. Should it be possible to create a reusable workflow on a system with no langualge pack installed and install it on another system with a language pack installed? Johan.

Can't install Service Pack 3 for SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services


I just installed a stand-alone SQL Server 2005 reporting services on a 64-bit Server 2008 machine without receiving any errors.  I have not configured reporting services yet, but I'd like to patch it with Service pack 3. However, when I execute Service Pack 3, it won't let me check the box for reporting services.  I've rebooted, etc.  The database is not installed on this server, just reporting services.

I have performed many searches, but I have not seen anyone with a similar problem.  What can I do so that it allows me to check the box during service pack installation?


Problem with language pack and navigation to pages



We have installed the Norwegian language pack for Sharepoint 2010 RTM, as explained in this technet article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262108.aspx

Everything seemed to be working as excepted, except for some page navigation which is not using the correct language files. We are registerring some web parts in the onet.xml, and the code below are causing some problems.  

 <Module Name="MyWebpart" Url="$Resources:osrvcore,List_Pages_UrlName;" Path="">

 The "$Resources:osrvcore, List_Pages_UrlName" retrieves 'Pages' from cmscore.resx. The problem is that the Norwegian translation for the List_Pages_UrlName is located in the cmscore.nb-NO.resx. Do I have to replace the original cmscore.resx with the language specific version? I thought Sharepoint would handle this for me. Or is there some step I have missed?
