  • Hi, thanks for the answer but I want to have the display language for the interface. - Dirk Verhoogen 3 years ago
  • If you are talking about he GUI language, it might not be easy... I would rather use a Source Media with the desired language.

    Check on Google if there is a way, with a BAT file or something.... and it should be possible via Windows post install task.

    FYI, I am not sure of those language packs can be obtained for free or without EULA issues. - Channeler 3 years ago

If you are referring to foreign language keyboards, yes, this is possible. You need to import the required registry keys into the default user profile hive. Here is the script that we use:
reg load HKU\Def c:\users\default\ntuser.dat
reg import "international keyboards.reg"
reg unload HKU\Def
I have a copy of the registry file on my GitHub page:

Place the script and the registry file in a zip, upload to the K2000 as an application and run the script as the parameter.

You can add language packs in a mid-level task with DISM


Create a batch file with

mkdir C:\Scratch
start /wait X:\windows\system32\dism.exe /ScratchDir:C:\Scratch /Image:C:\ /Add-Package /Packagepath:.
rmdir C:\Scratch

and zip that together with all language packs (and Features on demand if needed) and attach it to a mid-level task where you call the script task.

  • Can you please be more specific on the command? Am I supposed to ad something in the the "/scratchdir"? Am I only to include the path for the "Packagepath" - meritmedit 2 years ago
