Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 1006
Source: Microsoft-Windows-LanguagePackSetup
Version: 6.0
Message: Invalid language %1 specified as command line argument


Specify a valid language

Your command-line text contained an invalid language specification. You must use the format <language>-<REGION> for each language specified, where <language> is the lowercase ISO 639 language code and <REGION> is the uppercase ISO 3166-1 country/region identifier (for example: en-US). The valid language specifications are listed in the Culture Name column on the NLS information page (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=86010).


To verify that the language pack was successfully installed or removed:

  1. In Control Panel, click Change display language (located under the Clock, Language, and Region section).
  2. Verify the language is listed (or not listed) in the drop-down list.

Note: The drop-down list will only be visible if you have already installed a language pack or if your operating system supports Multilingual User Interface (MUI). MUI language packs can only be installed on Windows Vista Ultimate and Windows Vista Enterprise.
