Project Server 2010 install missing language pack RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all.

    I recently downloaded a project server 2010 iso from msdn to install on my sanbox. I "unzipped" the iso and ran the executable. The install completed successfully. However, when I attempt to provision a new PWA site, the language dropdown is empty. English should be the only option but it's missing. I went back to the installation folder and attempted to run the English language pack in the PrjSrv.en-us directory with no luck. When I attempt to run the .msi I get the following in the event viewer:

    Product: Microsoft Project Server English Language Pack -- Error 1713. Microsoft Project Server English Language Pack cannot install one of its required products. Contact your technical support group.  System Error:

    I know that I can install the Office Server 2010 English language pack but I don't want to support this separate install. English should just be there. Has anyone else experienced this issue?

  • Hello Lester,

    It seems to be a missed or corrupted unzip from the ISO file. Did you try to download the Langusage pack from Microsoft download?
    Try to downlaod from the below link

    Language packs enable creation of sites and site collections in multiple languages without requiring separate installations of SharePoint Server 2010, Project Server 2010 & once you run teh setup, make sure to run the Sharepoint technology & Configuration wizard as mentioned in the link.

    Hope that helps.

  • Hi.

    Yes, I've thought of installing that. As a matter of fact, I did and I'm sure that it works. The problem is that the package is Server language packs. I only want project server language pack. Otherwise, I'll have to support and maintain that Server language pack. Whenever a new service pack comes out, I'll have to update the server language pack too. It's just a headache that we don't have the bandwidth to deal with.

    I opened a premier support ticket so hopefully they can get to root cause so we can move forward.

  • Hi,

    I am having the exact same issue.  I am trying to create the initial PWA site but the language dropdown selection is blank and therefore the site creation failes with an error "Input string was not in a correct format." 


    I tried the above solution of installing the "Office Server 2010 English language pack ".  It installed just fine, but I still get the exact same behavior from the PWA site creation form.   

    Any ideas on what I can do?

  • Lester,

    What language version of Project Server / SharePoint did you install? If it was English, I have never seen that behaviour.

    As for your error 1713 above, checking out indicates that is by design to stop people running the office suite component msi's outside of the main setup.exe.

  • I downloaded English installation. I'm baffled on this one. Thanks for finding that KB article. I can now avoid more frustration by hoping one time it will run successfully.
