the setup generated by the execution of the administrative setup has a different ui language

Hello,

when i execute our setup.exe with /a its UI is in german. After that I execute the newly generated msi file and the UI is in englisch. Our goal is for both to be in the same language as we have currently 3 different languages in use.

We are using InstallShield 2016 Premier and I couldn't find even a hint on how to set a language for the msi file that is generated by the administrative installation.

Does anybody know something that could help me get on track?

Kind Regards

Re: the setup generated by the execution of the administrative setup has a different ui language

I believe the MSI will take its language from the "Default Language" value in your project. 

Try changing this to the German Language and your MSI should display German dialogs.

Re: the setup generated by the execution of the administrative setup has a different ui language

hello shunt, 

thank you for your replay. Sadly the default language under General Information is already set to german. After checking the msi log once again I found out that the ProductLanguage property is 1031 while executing the administrative setup but while executing the generated one it is 1033. 

Kind Regards

Please check in your latest ism file has German language added in release --> UI Language field or not, if its available then please add german language and then try again,

If German language is added in UI language field but still its fails to install in german, Then Please try install the newer version alone on a clean machine(not on top of older version) and see it install with German language or not,

Hello varul,

thank you for your answer. German is already added to the UI Languages. Only the default language was still set to english.

Changing the default language to german helped in getting the msi to run in german but now its always in german.

Even if I Select English in the administrative setup the msi generated is then in german.

Kind regards

Hi Steve, 

Could you please explain your scenario in detail, Version 1 is installed in german language and on installing version 2.0(minor upgrade) the setup is not installing in german? is this correct or you are doing different scenario,

If the scenario is different please share steps to reproduce the same behavior.

What is this screenshot is meant for "EnglishselectedButGerman"?
Because in this screenshot only language selection dialog is seen with default language selected, select german in this dialog and then install the setup,

Please understand if you have multiple language selected based on machine OS the default language is given preference,

Refer screenshot, even though the default language is japanese, because of machine OS is English the setup launched in English dialogs 

Default language JAP selected and installing in English.PNG

Hi varul thank you for your question.

I execute the Setup with -a to run an administrative setup. There I select language A and the ui is in language a. FInishing it will generate a new msi file. Executing that I get no language selection screen and the ui is in the default language as set in release and not in language A.

Generating new msi is a minor upgrade or major upgrade, Please share a sample project in a zipped package to show the issue.

Re: the setup generated by the execution of the administrative setup has a different ui language

Can you explain the part of it beeing a major or minor upgrade in more Detail? As the administrative Setup only generates files and folders I thought executing the generated msi afterwards is a normal installation. No prior version is installed.

To create an example will take some time as im new to this. But i can provide a video where i recorded the scenario.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Kind regards

Steve
