Language Pack Uninstall Failure
I have been trying to remove the language packs from both of my Vista Ultimate boxes. I have gone through the control panel and attempted a remove but, it fails to remove all of the languages. I have gone into the windows folder and the system32 folder and removed the languages here and Vista still thinks I have the languages installed. Are there more files located somewhere else that I need to delete? Any help would be great. Thank you

Hi funkGASM,

have a look at this from Microsoft.... A hotfix is available to reinstall a corrupted language pack and to resolve the problems that are caused by a corrupted language pack on a Windows Vista-based computer

It may sort your problem out,

regards

Steve

Re: Language Pack Uninstall Failure
If you are still having trouble removing the language packs, try disabling UAC, disable system restore, stop the windows update service, delete the C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution folder, reboot, and then do this:

Then run lpksetup and remove each language pack one at a time. It worked for me!
