Office 2010 error – The language of this installation package is not supported by your system

I used this in a corporate environment when receiving the following problem after a fialed network SMS deployment of Office 2010 Profession Plus:-

Error message – “the language of this installation package is not supported by your system”

The workaround is the following below –

NB. Please note Office 2010 & Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 (MOC) will be stripped out so find the hostname (start, run, cmd, hostname) of the problematic pc to allow RDP access if managing remotely…

  1. Download (to the desktop) Run this tool (as administrator) – http://www.refusetosuffer.com/downloads/removeoffice2010.exe
  2. Reboot
  3. Run the tool again if prompted
  4. Reinstall Office 2010 by CD method (didn’t try using Run Advertised Programs again)
  5. Reinstall Office Communicator 2007
Bye for now!
