'The language of this installation package is not supported by your system.” exception while installing SharePoint 2010


Hello All,

This blog is only for general information.

I was installing SharePoint 2010 on my development environment having Windows 7 OS. Did all the required changes for installing SharePoint 2010 for Windows 7 as per given on http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee554869%28office.14%29.aspx .

When started the setup file getting the error “The language of this installation package is not supported by your system.” 


As per the instructions, since we cannot use PrerequisteInstaller.exe on Windows 7 we need to do some manual changes.  To perform the manual changes we need to extract the set up file and need to do some changes in config.xml in setup folder. I did the changes and save and started the set up but some error.

After doing some research, it found that I extracted the set up file using WinZip software which is installed on my machine and after extracting folder structure looks like as follows:


But instruction says that using command /extract from the command prompt. I noticed this difference and again tried by extracting the setup file using extract command from command prompt. After extracting using extract command from command prompt folder structure looked like 


And then I could install server successfully.

As usual Comments/ Suggestions are most welcome

Thanks! Enjoy Reading
