@Gerald Connolly when I uninstall  version 7.1 with the GUI it fails, when I  install tsm 7.1 the installation is "successfull" but the tsm service doesn't start.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

That implies that the software didnt install correctly. Looks like its missing an english language error message file.

Googling the error message came up with this http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1PQ36715

Hi cismoney

Following @GeraldConnolly, I think the default installation language is AMENG (American English).  I wonder as you had previously installed it, did you install it with the FRA (French) language pack and thus there's some mix-up in the config to look for AMENG but can only see the FRA language pack?

Worth checking in dsmserv.opt as to what the LANGUAGE stanza is set to...?

I believe you can update the language pack through the installation manager.

Bon chance!

Cheers, JP

Thanx guys, Actually, the windows registry for tsm seemed corrupted after the windows upgrade to Windows 2012. I dont know why. I have restored an old and working register, i have reboot the server, and now TSM is working fine.
