Hello There, i have tried installing the French language pack by editing the Config.xml in 2 folders.

1. OMUI.fr-fr 2. PMUI.fr-fr  I have madet changes to the lines


<!-- <Display Level="full" CompletionNotice="yes" SuppressModal="no" AcceptEula="no" /> -->

Level = none, CompletionNotice=no SuppressModal="Yes" and EULA=yes. I removed the delimitors <!--   --> from these lines

<Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="yes" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />


<!-- <Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="IfNeeded" /> -->

new value=Never

<Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="Never" />

Added an extra line from technet website : <Setting Id="REBOOT" Value="ReallySuppress"/>

saved the config file and in CMD used Setup.exe /config

Please help

i think you have to specify the config file as in : setup.exe /config "filename.xml"

  • Thanks kevin, but we have 3 different Config files in 3 different folders. Was wondering which one to use for installation: VisMUI.fr-fr / PMUI.fr-fr OMUI.fr-fr
  • Kevin is correct - you need to pass the paramater of the /config to your execution, such as:

    %SOURCE%\setup.exe /config "%SOURCE%\config.xml

    The %SOURCE% variable above would reference the path to each file, respectively. Without it, it's not able to interpret the /config switch.
  • Thanks Kevin, drose23, i was able to install the setup with the XML placed in OMUI folder. Appreciate your help!. thanks a ton.

Here`s something i`ve done in the past.  We had MS Project 2010 (32bit) that needed to be installed with both French and English languages so in my xml file i added this line:

<AddLanguage Id="en-us" />

I obviously needed to add all the english files to my french installation folder.  The xml file is directly with the setup.exe file (root of the source directory) then my command line for SCCM was 

setup.exe /config myconfigfile.xml

Hope this helps.

Have a look below.

The Office lang pack documentation is a bit crap and dosent fully explain how to do a silent install after the fact (of office being installed). The link below will cover what you need to know to install it and remove it.
