Reinstalling which system? 2003? I am having the same problem "The language
of this installation package is not supported by your system". Did you
totally format your drive and reinstall everything?

I have a WIN XP Pro System SP2 trying to install the Office 2007 Enterprise
Edition with the same message. Reinstalling the OS seems like a drastic
measure. The not so friendly phone support guys folks at MSFT suggested that
I was using a CD drive to install Office which runs on a DVD drive
(interesting approach but not the case).

Oddly, the setup app runs on my work laptop DVD drive not not my home system.

The error message seems appear mostly for folks that used the 07 beta and
can unistall it.

Just read from another post.

Hi Todd;

I copied the CD to the local drive and it installed just fine. How stupid is
that? If I didn't work with SW developers all day I'd wonder what the hell
was up with that, but after some of the things I've seen nothing surprises me.

I got the language error. Here is what I did.

I went to Microsoft and downloaded another MS Office 2007
saved it to a folder on my c drive.
Copied down the key code that was on the download page.

I did a custom install and on each of the office applications,
I selected
X Do not install
(selected that red X when you do the pull down)
I then let it install

Went back into the add/remove programs and it now let me uninstall the
TRIAL version of Office 2007!!
After that I was able to re-install my Office 2003
and all was good!!

I copied the entire Office 2007 disc to a local drive and it installed easily.

The sad part is that MS Tech Support could not fix the problem. My call to
them is covered by my companies service plan and the poor slobs could not
even fix their own product.

So the question still exists, "why do we pay so much for inferior products"?

Never mind just saw at the top of the thread you had already trie

I just had an issue with installing an Arabic Language Pack, and it ha
to do with 2 checkboxes on the regional and language options...

On Windows XP:

Start --> Control Panel --> Regional and Language Options

Select the second Tab, LANGUAGES

Then click on either or both checkboxes:

(X) Install files for complex script and right-to-left language
(including Thai)

(X) Install files for East Asian Languages

You will need your Windows XP CD as it will copy files from the i38

I also don't have a disk i.e. download iso and use isobuster to
open/extract files.
At first I tried extracting using default and got the "language" error.
I re-extracted using the 'extract raw but convert to user data' option
and then it worked.
The difference at first glance is the dir/file naming convention for
almost all the files.
