Upgrade groupwise client installs no extra languages

Hi,

I've created a package that distributes the msi's to install the groupwise 2012 sp2 client. The groupwise client has to be installed with some extra languages. All our users have groupwise 2012 sp1 client installed. So the distribution of the package is a upgrade. All is going fine, but when the user starts the groupwise client, no extra languages are installed. When I distribute the groupwise 2012 sp2 client on a machine with no previous groupwise installation, it installs all the languages which I defined in the mst.

Does someone have an idea on how to distribute the groupwise client with the extra languages?

The distribution method is still ZEN7. But I think it's mainly the msi installation that is the issue here. But is there someone who has had this issue and resolved it?

Many thanks in advance.

The upgrade installation can't change the options I'm afraid. You will
have to uninstall the old version first. 😞

Re: Upgrade groupwise client installs no extra languages

Massimo,

I was afraid of that. I was hoping that there is a possibility to copy the language files in the program directory or something like that.

But thank you for answering my question.
