I'm trying to figure out how to have multiple language selection for RWW on SBS 2011.
I have several customers with a SBS 2011 setup, most of which running the English version. Most of these customers are french speaking but it's just so much harder to manage a system in French than it is in English so that's why I always go with English. The only problem is that SBS 2011 has a lot of user facing services, most of which comes with multiple language support built-in (like OWA for example) but some other, for a reason beyond my comprehension, only comes in the same language as SBS itself. This is of the case for RWW.
The funny thing is, for one particular customer, I ordered the French version of SBS 2011 and to my big surprise, RWW is available in both French and English! It even automatically detects your browser regional setting and serves up the pages in the right language. Awesome!
Now, I'm convinced there is a (unsupported) way to bring this to the English version. I know that, officially, SBS 2011 doesn't support SLP or MUI language packs, but there must be some other way.
I tried copying the "(System Drive)\Program Files\Windows Small Business Server\Bin\WebApp\RemoteAc
cess" folder from the French version over to the English version but that didn't help.
I also tried copying every "FR" folders I could find inside the "Windows Small Business Server" folder over but still nothing.
It appears as if the detection of available languages for RWW doesn't happen inside IIS or its ApplicationPool directories but I can't figure out where.
I'm sure someone with an great understanding of SBS WebApps inner-workings could give me some hints.
PS: I attached screenshots of what it looks like between the French and English version.
