Cannot install MUI language pack


C

Chip

Hi,

My development environment is FP2007 and I am working on XPE image that will
allow user to switch foreign languages at operating system runtime. I
figured out that I needed to install MUI packs according to a MSDN article
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa940959.aspx.

When I tried to install French from my service pack 1 CD, I got installation
error. Here is message I got from the log file.

Windows XP Embedded -- Service Pack 1 French MUI Pack Installer

Copying 'French MUI resource repository' repository files to
\\DEV116\Repositories\{CFF5986F-7746-4A10-BAF3-F5D90C526E6C}
Error: The specified repository root does not exist or is not accessible.

The following files have not been imported:
g:\f5bd1b159573fdbc484a32a49158\LANGFR.sld


File(s) processed: 1, File(s) imported successfully: 0

No objects or files were imported to the database DEV116.

WEUpdate Exiting with return code: 8

**** End Of Run ****

Can someone tell me how to fix this problem?

Thanks.

Hi,

I'd check it first if the Repositories share on your Dev116 machine is open for read and writes.

Hi KM,

I followed your advice and made Repositories folder "Share" with Maximum
allowed. I also went to the security tab to grant Administrators and Users
of DEV116 computer read/write privileges for this folder. But the
"Read-only" attributes on both "Repositories" and "Windows Embedded Data"
folder (on top of Repositories folder) cannot be removed via Windows
Explorer. Then I tried to install French language pack and I got the same
error.

Then I think Repositories folder could be a Microsoft customized folder
based on Microsoft's article in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/256614, that
prevents me to remove Read-only attribute.

Do you think it is safe for me to follow the procedure in the article to
configure Windows Explorer to use the System flag instead of the Read-Only
flag or you have some other things for me to look at?

Thanks again.

Chitman,

It should be totally safe to follow the article to remove the read-only attributes for the Repositories folders (surprised that you
even got the attribute set) but you probably want to follow the XP version of the article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/326549
(assuming your dev machine is XP).

Also, you may want to try to write to the network share from another machine (or from the same machine but using the network share,
not the local folder).

Last you can try to switch to use local folder paths for Repositories instead of the network shares. You can change that using CDM
(Component Database Manager) on Repositories page.

Hi KM,

I couldn't solve the problem last time just because I misunderstood your
first response by changing the permissions in security. Now I changed the
permissions under sharing tab and I was able to install all the language
packs. Then I included those language components in my configuration. I was
able to switch different languages in the operating system runtime.

I have two more questions. When I open Start/Program menu, I noticed these
shortcuts (menu items), such as Accessories, Internet Explorer, Outlook
Express, and Windows Messenger are still in English even though other menu
items are in another language. Am I missing some components or was there no
translation for those menu items? My second question is where I can find MUI
language component description (or help) because it didn't appear the help
file was updated when installing MUI language pack.

Thanks for the help.

Chip,

English shortcuts in Start Menu is a known issue for most of MUI language packs. IIRC, there is only manual workaround to the
issue - manually copy the right localized shortcuts.

IIRC, MUI help (docs and readme) are part of the MUI packs.
