Uninstall or repair a Microsoft Dynamics 365 Language Pack


Applies To: Dynamics 365 (on-premises), Dynamics CRM 2016

To perform Language Pack maintenance, select from the following options that are available. Before you select an option, you must start Programs and Features in Control Panel.


Rather than uninstall a Language Pack that is installed on the Microsoft Dynamics 365 server, you can disable a Language Pack in the organization. After you do this, users will no longer be able to see the Microsoft Dynamics 365 user interface and Help in the language that you disabled. Later, you can enable the Language Pack by clicking the language in the Language Settings list.

When a Language Pack is removed or disabled, users who have that Language Pack language selected on the Personal Preferences form will have to use the base language. For example, consider the following scenario. A Microsoft Dynamics 365 deployment has English as the base language, but the Spanish Language Pack was used in the organization. Then, when the system administrator disables (or uninstalls) the Spanish Language Pack, users who selected the user interface to be in Spanish will see it in English.

To disable a Language Pack, see Enable languages.

Uninstall. Selecting this option will remove the selected Language Pack from the computer. If you uninstall a Language Pack, you must reinstall and then enable it before it is available to users again.

Uninstall a Language Pack

  1. Right-click the Language Pack, such as Microsoft Dynamics 365 German Language Pack, and then click Uninstall.

  2. If other users are logged on to the computer, you will receive a warning message. Click Continue if you want to continue and remove the Language Pack.

  3. To confirm that you want to remove the Language Pack, click Yes, and then follow the instructions that are on your screen.

Repair. To repair a damaged Language Pack installation, right-click the Language Pack, click Repair, and then follow the instructions that are on your screen.
