Recently, I heard from a customer who has a system with Update Rollup 2 for Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 and a localization pack that is used to add support for one of the new locales that was added in the Update Rollup 2 product. However, the customer ran into a problem that caused them to need to re-install their OS. After re-installing the OS, they were unable to re-install the localization pack and their Windows and Windows Media Center UI displayed in English instead of the language of the localization pack. Attempting to re-run the localization pack setup displayed an error stating "Installation of more than one Localization Pack for Update Rollup 2 for Windows Media Center 2005 is not supported."
If you run into a similar scenario and need to be able to re-install a localization pack for Update Rollup 2 for Windows XP Media Center 2005, you can use steps like the following:
You should be able to re-run setup for the localization pack after completing the above steps to clean off the previous installation of the localization pack.
