Offering this for information...

While installing SP1, I selected the language option to install only languages on the DVD. I was assuming the "DVD" referred to the file I downloaded as the service pack. I got an error message about a missing common.resources.dll in the zh-hans (or zh-hant) folder.

I downloaded another copy of the service pack and ended up with the same result. The specified folder was empty, compared to similarly named folders with many files. I tried "spoofing" by copying files from another folder, but got a similar, but different, missing file message.

Next time through, I selected the option to install all language files, which led to an Internet download, and then things proceeded successfully to completion.

OK, I got through it, but I don't like the idea of installing a bunch of files for which I will have no use.

Bug in the download package?

Could be, but I think all totaled, the complete language pack requires only about 700MB in disk space. And there is no performance hit for the languages not used.

According to error provided, zh-hans is chinese (simplified), did you installed it at previous?

I don't think I installed any optional languages. I normally go through custom/advanced options and deselect what I don't need/want. If I made a conscious choice of language support, it would have been English and Spanish only.

So I guess what you are suggesting is that Chinese was installed to begin with, and was not available from the "DVD"-based update file...

The "DVD choice" only installs the existing default language.

There is no ability to choose individual languages when installing the 2010 language pack, you get the whole thing.

Yes...

That page looks familiar.

I definitely downloaded it from MS, somewhere, and that is the file name.
