Adding Language Packs


Copy a Language Pack to the Windows Distribution


Important: start cmd as Administrator. From the Startmenu, select cmd by right mouse button and select: "Run as Administrator"

Network shares are not available in this environment, so better copy all required files to c:\ before hand.

From Linux:

# /mnt: mount ISO with Language Packs (SP1)
# $WORK/installfiles: contents of a Win7 SP1 installation DVD


cd $WORK
mkdir langpacks-extracted
cd langpacks-extracted
cabextract /mnt/langpacks/de-de/
mkdir -p installfiles/langpacks
rsync -av /mnt/langpacks/de-de installfiles/langpacks/
rsync -av langpacks/de-de/sp1/sources/license/. installfiles/sources/license/.
rsync -av langpacks/de-de/sp1/setup/sources/. installfiles/sources/.

Steps 5-8 must be performed on a Windows System with WAIK tools.

System error 5 has occurred.
Access is denied.

This is not a bug, it is a feature of Windows 7, named UAC (User Account Control). By default, an application that is started by a user who is a member of the Administrator group, is executed with normal (Users) priviliges. The user has the oppurtinuty to start that application by right-click and "Run as Administrator" without further password queries.
