Install Server 2003 with English as Default in MEXICO

Posted on 2006-06-07
Last Modified: 2010-04-18
We have a client in Mexico that bought Windows Server 2003 Ent and installed it in SPANISH.

Our Software will not function properly with this installation.

Is there a Setup switch or option that can be set for Mexican versions to install in English (the same as it installs in the U.S.) ?

If not, then do Resellers in Mexico also sell the English versions?

Note:  Just setting the Regional/localization settings doesn't solve our problem.  We need an English installation from the start, but using the client's installation CD.

    What you need to do here is install the MUI version. Then, you can setup any needed interface language, but the core of the installation is in English. That should solve your problem.
