language packs and SP1

Hello,

I recently read an article saying the SP1 will be delayed until fixes can be
made to work with the added language packs.

http://www.channelregister.co.uk/200...anguage_packs/

I had been adding some languages to my system as a courtesy to friends with
diverse backgrounds. All these people are multi-lingual, so it's strictly a
courtesy.

Is there a consensus on whether I should remove the packs, so that SP1 could
install, or should I just wait for the fixes to come out 'later in the
year'?

I am curious to see what effect SP1 will have on my system.

Thanks!

Language Packs and Windows Vista SP1

We have some information we'd like to share in regards to
Windows Vista SP1 and folks running Language Packs. Some of
you may have noticed that after installing Windows Vista SP1
on Windows Vista Ultimate - the Language Packs fail to
appear on Windows Update (KB947875).

We will be releasing Windows Vista SP1 in two "waves". The
first wave will only provide Windows Vista SP1 to Windows
Vista Ultimate PCs running the following 5 Languages:
English, French, German, Japanese and Spanish. The second
wave will follow shortly after - supporting all 36 languages.

For Windows Update, PCs running the 5 initial languages from
the first wave only will be provided with Windows Vista SP1.
PCs running Windows Vista Ultimate with any of the other
Language Packs installed will not be offered Windows Vista
SP1 through Windows Update until they are released. Once the
Language Packs are released, Windows Vista SP1 will then be
offered for installation.

When installing Windows Vista SP1 from the standalone
installer, the standalone installer will only install on
Windows Vista Ultimate running any of the 5 languages from
the first wave. When installing Windows Vista SP1 on Windows
Vista Ultimate with a Language Pack that is not one of the 5
initial Language Packs supported - you will get the
following error (KB947876) when attempting to install
Windows Vista with the standalone installer:

Windows Vista Service Pack 1 cannot be installed on
your computer because the language of Windows Vista you have
installed is not supported or you have installed a language
pack that is not supported.

Windows Vista Service pack 1 can only be installed on
computers running the English, French, German, Japanese and
Spanish versions of Windows Vista or computers running only
those language packs.

This means if you are running a Language Pack that is not
one of the 5 initial Language Packs you will not be able to
install Windows Vista SP1 until the other Language Packs are
released.

But not to worry - the Language Packs are on their way. We
will have more information on exactly when very shortly so
stay tuned!
