Having a problem packaging Sony Ericsson PCSuite.
I have the Cd which contains a setup.exe file. If i do a setup.exe /a -i get the native msi file.
So far so good. But when i install the msi file the program is swedish.
Why???

If i start the setup.exe file i get a dialog box asking me which language i want??? If i choose english here-of course the program is english......

If i check the properties of the msi file it says

WiseInitLanDefault=English,1033
PRoductlanguage=1033

Can somone tell me why i dont get the english language????

Hope this is enough info for you guys.

Howto monitor MSI install actions in real time.

Create the REG_DWORD registry value "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer\Debug" and set the data to 00000002.
Download DebugView from http://www.sysinternals.com
MSI (Windows Installer) installations on the target machine will write thier CA (Custom Actions) to the debug port and this will be displayed in DebugView.

Start DebugView either on the target machine or by connecting remotely to the target machine

Run setup.exe directly after you selected the launched look in DebugView and the last row should tell you which property or properties it has changed for the selected language.

An alternate method (admittedly not as slick as AngelD's suggestion) might be to do the following :

Set up verbose logging first, then perform the setup.exe installation first. Locate and save a copy of the verbose log for this installation.

Next, either uninstall the application or (more preferably) set up a second clean test machine, and perform installation from the MSI you managed to isolate. Locate and save a copy of the verbose log for this installation.

Assuming you set voicewarmup as the verbose option, you should see a full listing of the properties at the end of each log file. Compare the two property listings and see if you can spot a difference in properties concerning Language Selection.

Once you find the property, this can be supplied on the command line for the MSI only install. For example, if the property in question was named PRODLANGUAGE, the command might be

msiexec /i <Name of your MSI> PRODLANGUAGE=1033 /qb-

Okey, do like this:
Have DebugView monitor the installation and finish the setup.exe installation.
Save the DebugView log to a file, open the file and search for 1033.
Or if you don't have a clue attach it and we'll have a look. DO NOT POST THE CONTENTS OF THE FILE ;)

You don't say which version of the Sony Ericsson PC Suite you are working on, but I note that when the installer for v1.10.7 is run, it unpacks the MSI plus a whole bunch of MST transforms to the %TEMP% folder, including 1033.MST.

If this is the version you are working on then for a (US) English installation, I would suggest that you need to run the MSI with the 1033 transform :-

msiexec /i "Sony Ericsson PC Suite.msi" TRANSFORMS=1033.MST

If you have any further modifications you need to make, you can either modify 1033.MST directly, or create a second transform containing your additional changes.

Sorry to start my question with the already existing link..

I am interested to know how you had solved the unsigned driver installation for SonyEricsson (models K610,K618,K790,K800) in Usermode ( I meant without any new hardware wizard popup)..

Can somebody help me please.. [:@]

Hi slb,

You will have to sign those and use Driver Install Frameworks Tools. Have a look at http://itninja.com/question/how-do-you-roll-out-new-machines?0873&mpage=1.

Locate the driver files and when using the DIFxApp.msm (merge module) make sure to "install" drivers to different directories. Each mobil model will have around 4-6 drivers attached to it. When you locate the .inf file make sure to remove the remark for the CatalogFile entry under the version section.

Here is a teaser for Sony Ericsson K610 ;)
Find se2Ebus.inf, se2Emdm2.inf, se2Endis.inf, se2Eobx2.inf, se2Esdm2.inf and se2Eunic.inf.
Put each of these in different folders and the files located in the SourceDisksFiles section.

Hi AngelD,
Actually I had referred to your previous posts earlier, rated one point more.
My mistake is that i had tried to do the certificates with Win 2000 which never worked out. [8D]

Thanks a lot for your help.
