Just wanted to add this to my blog, because I have been asked this twice already last week. The order below is the one I use when I have to install Language Packs. Basically I prefer installing in the same order as the updates have been released. In Belgium we are customed to install 3 languages: English, Dutch and French. Hence this post
First of all install the prerequisite software for Windows Server 2003:
.Net Framework 3.0
Then start the installation of MOSS and updates:
|Install MOSS (English and without SP1)|
|Install WSS language pack French||x86||x64|
|Install MOSS language pack French||x86||x64|
|Install WSS language pack Dutch||x86||x64|
|Install MOSS language pack Dutch||x86||x64|
|install WSS 3.0 SP1||x86||x64|
|install Moss 2007 SP1||x86||x64|
|Install WSS SP1 language pack French||x86||x64|
|Install MOSS SP1 language pack French||x86||x64|
|Install WSS SP1 language pack Dutch||x86||x64|
|Install MOSS SP1 language pack Dutch||x86||x64|
|Install Post-SP1 WSS Infrastructure update||x86||x64|
|Install Post-SP1 MOSS infrastructure update||x86||x64|
I have added the link to the MS download site for each individual update as requested by a colleague of mine.
Remember that you do not need the Configuration Wizard at each step. Some of the updates automatically start the wizard. Just simply cancel it out and continue installing the rest of the updates. What I always try to keep in mind is to install the updates for WSS first and then continue withthe MOSS counterpart.
Another little thing to remember is that you can get the language packs form the Microsoft download site for free.
