I was very excited to discover that Server 2008's entire operating system's language can be switched by downloading a Microsoft MUI (Multilingual User Interface) pack.
This is incredibly helpful as my company has recently began tackling the China markets. I tested a Chinese MUI on a local english server and it works like a champ. However, I'm attempting to perform the opposite switch at the China site. I cannot speak Chinese, however, I've become pretty good at perusing through the China OS via pictures and some guessing.
What I've attempted was downloading the en-us (english) MUI and transferred it to the China server. When walking through the installation of the language pack, it throws up a message telling me the language pack is not compatible (as told by a china employee). I was sure to download the x86 MUI as that server is 32bit. I'll go ahead and try a 64bit version of the MUI and see if that works for some reason.
Anyone else ever attempt such a thing? =)
