As you have failed to tell us, we have to assume that you're talking about a language pack for Windows? I can't think of a single such pack which didn't come as a proper package, i.e. with an executeable. If you're talking about something else, do tell. We're all reasonably clever here but regrettably, psychic powers are beyond us.

As I mentioned, I'm more used to seeing these things already wrapped in an MSI but, if push comes to shove, why not simply capture the process using your MSI authoring tool?

LOL...what sort of standard is THAT? Does that mean that you run vendor installs exactly as they're supplied? With no CLUE as to what they're going to do to your workstations? Gosh, you must be popular with your Desktop Support Johnnies! Good luck with disabling Adobe Reader's auto-update across your estate. Oh, and Java Runtime Environment. Those are just two, off the top of my head that, if you run the EXE as supplied, will royally screw you over.

Still, I'm sure the idiot who imposed that restriction on you knows what he's doing, eh?

Hi skt,

you can use lpksetup.exe to install language packs in win7, for more help type lpksetup.exe /?
commnad: lpksetup /i es-ES /r /s /p [Path to the cab file]
you have to create an .xml file to activate the langauge like mentioned in this link http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/goglobal/bb964650.aspx
next step contol.exe intl.cpl,,/f:[Path to the .xml file]

Here is the complete solution For installing any language pack and chaging the Display language and system account language.

you can use lpksetup.exe to install language packs in win7, for more help type lpksetup.exe /? will give you full detail.
commnad: lpksetup /i es-ES /r /s /p [Path to the cab file] (es-ES ) language code.
you need to create an .xml file to activate the langauge like mentioned in this link http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/goglobal/bb964650.aspx . choose which one will suit for your work stds.
NOTE: simply copy paste of XML code on note pad will not work because the XML file is need to be save as unicode format. than
next step contol.exe intl.cpl,,/f:[Path to the .xml file], restart machine.

On Windows 7 you shouldn't be using lpksetup (that was the Vista tool, it still works but is not the official way anymore) but dism

To add a language to pack use
dism /online /Add-Package /PackagePath:c:\temp\lp.cab

Enterprise and Ultimate will work like this, Professional and below will need to be sysprepped again afterwards to remove the old language pack due to licensing.
