Language support

I have to deploy a huge amount of workstations and need them to include Asian
language support. What I would like to do is create an msi or a script that
will accomplish this task as it is quite time consuming to navigate to the
control panel and do this manually.

Thanks in advance,

Perhaps I should be a little clearer on this issue…. I am getting these
computers from an OEM with XP pre installed. I then load our software on them
and make the necessary changes to the configuration. Then I add the Asian
language support. What I would like to do is automate the install of the
Asian language Support It would be nice if I could create an MSI file or
something like that…Answer files are not a good solution for me as the OS is
already installed.

Thanks

I don't think a script is the solution since installing Asian language support
will prompt you to insert the Windows XP CD in order to copy the necessary files.

You can change the MUI with this command:
rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL intl.cpl,,/f:"c:\unattend.txt"

Make sure you include the language settings on a unattend.txt that's
formatted correctly.

Hope this helps!
