Deploy .MSI with the good language RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have two .MSI, one for the german language and another for the french.

    I want to create a GPO to deploy the good .msi depending of the Windows language.

    I did a lot of searches but nothing fit with my condition.

    What should I do ? Make a script to test the windows language and call the good .msi after or can i do this with GPO ?

    There is maybe a solution with orca and add an installation language to the .msi but i don't understand how to do this.

    A little help would be appreciate

    Best Regards,

  • 1 this is scripting forum, not forum abot msi's and gpo's

    2 u can create 2 policies with wmi filters by locale (have no idea how this filter should looks like, but it should be easy googlable)

    The opinion expressed by me is not an official position of Microsoft

  • First you have to decide which is the "good" language.  I vote for French.  

    Aren't ORCAs extinct?

    A language can be detected with MSI. 

    The correct forum is here:  Technet forums - Group Policy (microsoft.com)

  • 1) i didn't find the good one

    2) Thank's you for your advice.

    I tried to create 2 WMi rules, on for the German language and another for the french, but the problem is, i took the system language code. 

    "select * from Win32_OperatingSystem where OSLanguage = "3084"

    This code correspond at the language in which your installed the windows. YOu can change the interface language after, the code stay the same.

    So it doesn't work cause, most of computer been installed in French and changed to german after by the windows 10 paramaters.

    I need to figure it out.

  • Sorry but this is really not the correct forum.  Post in the GP forum for help with this.  It sounds like you are using language settings for the user account and you will need to resolve that.  The GP forum will work with you to discover if th4ere is a solution for your dilemma.
