Trouble installing Input Languages (LIPs) on Windows 7 Professional using Task Sequence
Posted on 2014-09-03
We are in the process of getting Windows 7 Professional ready to rollout and require an additional set of input languages / keyboards installed for Public facing PCs. Please note this isn't MUI we're trying to get installed as we know these are only available on Enterprise and Ultimate editions.
The languages we require are English UK (As default), Chinese PRC, Albanian, Czech, English (US), French, German, Greek, Gujurati, Hindi, Italian Punjabi, Russian, Spanish, Tamil and Urdu.
We're using SCCM 2012 with MDT integration for the task sequence.
We use a variable for the input locale (OSDInputLocale) to specify the languages / keyboards that we require which has a value as follows:
Now here's the problem:
When running the task sequence, once it finishes, we only get English UK (Default), Chinese PRC, Albanian, Czech, English US and French. None of the others appear.
If I take out Chinese PRC (zh-Cn;0804:00000804) and place this either in the middle of the list or at the end and run the task sequence, we only get English UK and English US (Default).
We then added Chinese PRC (zh-Cn;0804:00000804) back at the start but removed Albanian, Czech, English US and French. When we ran the task sequence this time we ended up with English UK (Default), Chinese PRC, German, Greek, Gujurati, Hindi and Italian and not the others that follow.
If we take Chinese PRC (zh-Cn;0804:00000804) out all together, we get all the languages.
I have tried the other Valid Locale ID:InputLocale combinations for Chinese PRC (0804:e00e0804, 0804:e0010804, 0804:e0030804, 0804:e0040804) but get the same results as above.
As another test, I substituted Chinese PRC for Chinese_Hong Kong. This time we ended up with:
Chinese (Trad. Taiwan), English, Czech, German, Greek, US, French,Albanian, Persian, Hindi, Gujurati, Chinese (Trad Hong Kong S.A.R), meaning we were missing Iatlian, Spanish Russian, Urdu, Tamil and Punjabi.
We're at a total loss as to why we can't get Chinese PRC installed alongside everything else so hoping someone out there might have an idea!
Thanks in advance!
