  1. Multi-language WIM - even possible?


    Ive been hoping to cook a single Windows 10 image for our company that would offer stock Windows 10 Enterprise x64 for multiple languages - painstakingly assembling a mega-WIM from Microsoft VL media using Export-WindowsImage. Turns out this was easier said than done - selecting any other WIM index than the (base) en-us image will cause setup to error out with a nasty Windows could not set the offline locale information at the very end. Nothing of relevance to be found in the setup log files or on Google. Has anyone successfully built such a beast or would be willing to have a go? Even just combining English and Italian leads to the same error (when trying to install the Italian version).

    Using the MCT/Media Creation Tool to access the download page then to the Language choices gives a list of languages but not a multi-language version.

    I’ve been hoping to cook a single Windows 10 image for our company that would offer stock Windows 10 Enterprise x64 for multiple languages - painstakingly assembling a mega-WIM from Microsoft VL media using Export-WindowsImage.

    Turns out this was easier said than done - selecting any other WIM index than the (base) en-us image will cause setup to error out with a nasty «Windows could not set the offline locale information» at the very end. Nothing of relevance to be found in the setup log files or on Google.
