Deploying Windows Language Packs using ConfigMgr

You can deploy Windows Language Packs using ConfigMgr (2007 and 2012) by incorporating Lpksetup.exe as the “Standard Program” command-line for your ConfigMgr Package.

Installation Syntax:
lpksetup.exe {/i [{* | <language_list>}] [/p <language_pack_path>] [{/r/f/a/s}]

Full explanations of the command-line options are here:  Lpksetup Command-Line Options

However, there is a caveat, particularly when deploying x64 Language Packs using ConfigMgr 2012.   The installation will fail on a x64 OS because Lpksetup.exe is a native 32-bit application.

However, Erik Verwer has found the proper way to deploy the x64 Language Packs using ConfigMgr 2012 and detailed the process, step-by-step:  Deploying Windows 7 x64 Language Packs via ConfigMgr 2012
