I am trying to create a deployment of Office 2013 with a variety of language packs. This is the process I am following:
1. Create a deployment share folder (will be eventually be done using Config Manager but doing this locally for now). This includes the Office install files as well as a folder named x86languagepacks with the ~8GB of language pack files.
2. Edited the config.xml in proplus.ww folder to specify which languages we want installed:
3. Use the command line setup.exe /adminfile "adminfile.msp" /config proplus.ww\config.xml.
I also tried placing the admin file in the Updates folder and the command line setup.exe /config proplus.ww\config.xml but that failed too. It works for a standard (no language packs) install when using the built in config.xml in the proplus.ww folder
so the problem must be with what I posted above. Are there any obvious errors in it?
The logs show these 2 errors:
Cannot find exact locale ID for culture match type.
Failed to convert CultureTag [match] to HCULTURE. Error Code 0x8ff00001.
I verified all of the languages I am specifying in the config.xml exist in my x86languagepacks folder. And, as afar as I can see the error log seems to be parsing the config.xml OK.
Well, I appear to have solved my issue. The problem was my placement of the language pack files in the nested folder I named x86languagepacks. I instead tried placing them at the root of the deployment share and they have installed. The documentation for
this was just vague enough (to me anyway) that I was unaware the directory structure needed to be flat with regards to that.
