Error configuration Wizard WSS3 "The Language is not supported on teh server"

The following error happens during step 2 of the Configuration Wizard.

****** Error MSG from log******
  Task configdb has failed with an unknown exception
Exception: Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: The language is not supported on the server. ---> System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x8102005E): The language is not supported on the server.


If I start the Wizard again I now get:
Exception: System.InvalidOperationException: Windows SharePoint Services configuration infrastructure is not initialized.  You must wait until completion before joining another server to the farm.

If I delete the databases and start again I get the first error msg again.

The DBServer is the same machine.

TFS 2010 RC is also running on this server.

Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.

Installation of Sharepoint 2007 Service pack 2 fails on Step 8 of Sharepoint Configuration Wizard


Here's the deal:-

Our test environment consists of one SQL Server 2005 machine, 1 Domain Controller and 1 Windows 2008 R2 server with Sharepoint 2007 and Project 2007 installed.

We wanted to test the installation of Sharepoint 2007 Service Pack 2 in our test environment. I followed the instructions available from Technet to install both the WSS 3.0 SP2 and MOSS 2007 SP2 http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd637740(office.12).aspx BUT the last part of the Sharepoint Configuration Wizard failed with the following error:-


SQL Database 'ProjectServer_Published' on SQL Server instance 'SPDatabaseServiceInstance'

not found. Additional error information from SQL

Server is included below.


Cannot open database "ProjectServer_Published" requested by the login.

The login failed.

Login failed for user 'domain\FarmAdmin'.

The weird thing is my database is called 'MTL_Project_Published'

So it looks like it's looking for the old project databases.

Has anyone encountered this issue before when installing the service pack 2 of Sharepoint 2007 in their environment?


I have tried all the other solutions posted on the Internet such as running the upgrade via the command prompt, cleari

Sharepoint 2010 - Error while running Configuration wizard for SP 2010 server farm

Hi All,

I am trying to set up a SP 2010 farm. I have windows server 2008 R2 installed and was able to install SP 2010 successfully. However when I ran the Sp 2010 Products and configuration wizard I am getting the following error at Step 3.

An exception of type System.Collections.Generic.KeyNotFoundException was thrown.  Additional exception information: The given key was not present in the dictionary.

I have installed all the prerequisites and I am on Microsoft Geneva Framework 1.0.30624.0 . I saw on a blog that Microsoft Geneve Framework beta 2 will actually cause the above problem. However I encountered the error with Beta 1 version as well.

Any ideas why this is happening?

Share Point 2010 Workflow throws error Workflow Failed to run when using a Pause Untill condition


I need to define a workflow where every night it checks the end date and if it is in past it should delete that list item. To achieve this I defined two workflows on the list which satrt when item created or modified. One workflow just checks the date and if past deletes the item. Another workflow I have defined as timer workflow which pauses untill 1am next day and then updates a hidden filed in the list item which triggers another instance of the timer workflow as well as deletion workflow.

Everything works fine if I remove the pause Until action, but if I use Pause Until or Pause For Duration the workflow does not resume and throws error workflow failed to run.

I googled and found this issue with 2007 and some hotfixes but could not find any solution for 2010 Anyone experienced the same issue?

Weird security configuration error message


Recently something has gone wrong with our website so that whenever you try to access an aspx file, it shows the following error:


Server Error in '/RALSWeb' Application.

Configuration Error

Error with ASP.NET Configuration Tool


I'm trying to make an MVC 2 site, and I've run into a bit of a snag.  I want to add user roles to my system via the configuration tool, but every time I click the Security tab I get the following error:

"There is a problem with your selected data store. This can be caused by an invalid server name or credentials, or by insufficient permission. It can also be caused by the role manager feature not being enabled. Click the button below to be redirected to a page where you can choose a new data store.

The following message may help in diagnosing the problem: Could not load type 'HandiGamer.MvcApplication'."

When I click on the 'Choose Data Store' button, it tells me I'm already using AspNetSqlProvider.

I have a .mdf file for the rest of the site's db, but didn't make any tables for membership as I thought all of that would be handled by the configuration tool.

Am I missing a step?
