Error: Language directory is missing or does not contain the

I get the Error: Language directory is missing or does not contain the required install files, when I try to install: Novell Client 4.91 SP4 English.exe. Where can I get the missing files?

The "Novell Client 4.91 SP4 English.exe" package from
download.novell.com doesn't have any "missing files" that you would
need to get from somewhere else, so the error must stem from some
other condition.

I think the situation in which that kind of error might appear is when
the Novell Client is already installed on the current workstation, but
its installed in a language other than English. Therefore running
SETUPNW.EXE or SETUPSP.EXE from the English-only installation set is
unable to upgrade the existing client, because the English-only
installation set doesn't contain the files for the language already
installed. If you intend to switch from whatever Novell Client
language is currently installed to English, try uninstalling the
existing Novell Client before attempting to install 4.91 SP4 English.

Another consideration is simply whether the .EXE failed to extract
properly or completely. For me, when extracted it creates a
"C:\Novell\Novell Client 4.91 SP4 English\" directory containing
36.4MB in 412 files and 11 folders (as declared by the Windows
Explorer "Properties" once extracted).

Use acu.exe in the service pack instead of setupsp.
