WSS 3.0 SP1, Language Pack SP1 and orders

January 23rd, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

WSS 3.0:

Now that SP1 and Langauge Packs SP1 are out there, there has been some confusions around the order of installations. I have tried all the following orders at different clients and they all worked. Just thought that it is not a bad idea to share it with you here.

Order 1:
WSS 3.0
WSS 3.0 SP1
WSS 3.0 language pack
WSS 3.0 language pack SP1
Status: Worked!

Order 2:
WSS 3.0
WSS 3.0 language pack
WSS 3.0 SP1
WSS 3.0 language pack SP1
Status: Worked!

Order 3:
WSS 3.0 SP1 slipstream
WSS 3.0 language pack
WSS 3.0 language pack SP1
Status: Worked!

By “Worked” I mean that the installation process went through without giving any errors. I also get the drop down to choose a language when creating Site Collections or Sub Sites and finally I am able to create foreign language sites afterwards with no problems. I think that’s why LP SP1 was not slipstreamed into SP1.

MOSS 2007:

Update (7/Feb/2008): This post is really about WSS 3.0 , but I would also like to add an order of installation for MOSS 2007 which I tried today and it worked as well.

Order 1:
Moss 2007
Moss 2007 language pack (Includes the necessary WSS 3.0 LPs, Don’t double install like SP1)
WSS 3.0 SP1
Moss 2007 SP1
Moss 2007 LP Service Pack1 (i.e. officeserverlp2007sp1-kb936984-x86-fullfile-fr-fr.exe – Note KB number)
Status: Worked!

At the moment I can’t find a separate installation file for MOSS 2007 SP1 slipstream, but I know that MS is working on getting a slipstreamed MOSS 2007 SP1 released. I will keep you posted as soon as I know more.

Update (9/March/2008):  Wait for MOSS 2007 SP1 slipstream is finally over , see Joel Olson’s post at http://blogs.msdn.com/sharepoint/archive/2008/03/07/moss-2007-with-sp1-slipstream-officeserverwithsp1-exe-released.aspx

    Shouldn’t you install WSS SP1 first in the Second MOSS variant?

    It is the first install. I started from clean MOSS installation and then applied MOSS LP and then started applying SPs.
