CA400EXP-INSTALL NO SECONDARY LANGUAGE SUPPORT IN V6R1
END OF ABSTRACT

Error Description

In previous releases, System i Access for Windows included      
support for installing secondary languages. Secondary languages
allow users to configure System i Access for Windows to display
System i Access features in different languages.                
                                                               
In V6R1, GA code of System i Access for Windows does not have  
secondary language support.                                    

Problem Summary

See Error Description.                                          

Problem Conclusion

This PTF adds secondary language support for V6R1M0 System i    
Access for Windows.                                            
                                                               
You can install secondary languages from a System i platform    
that has both System i Access for Windows (5761-XE1) and the    
desired secondary language installed, or from the System i      
Access for Windows V6R1M0 DVD, as long as the client computers  
have the latest service level installed.                        
                                                               
The following instructions describe how to install secondary    
languages from a System i and from the DVD.                    
                                                               
Note: in the steps detailed below, you can use setup.exe        
instead of cwblaunch.exe as long as you are located in the      
ImageXX folder that contains the installation image that is    
right for your PC, i.e. Image32 for 32-bit based PCs, Image64a  
for AMD 64-bit and Image64i for Itanium.                        
                                                               
To install a secondary language from a System i:                
                                                               
In order to make secondary languages available to your users,  
you first need to apply System i Access for Windows PTF SI31390
or later on your System i.                                      
                                                               
During a new installation:                                      
                                                               
1.  Map a drive to the System i QIBM sharepoint                
    (\\NetServerName\QIBM).                                    
2.  Double-click QIBM > ProdData > Access > Windows >          
    cwblaunch.exe to start the setup program.                  
3.  Choose a Custom installation to select which secondary      
    languages and features you want installed to your PC.      
                                                               
    Note: If you select a Complete or a PC5250 User            
    installation, no secondary languages will be installed by  
    default. In this case, you can specify what secondary      
    languages to install with the CWBADDSECLANG property from  
    the command line, as explained below.                      
                                                               
4.  Complete the wizard.                                        
                                                               
During an upgrade:                                              
                                                               
1.  Map a drive to the System i QIBM sharepoint                
   (\\NetServerName\QIBM).                                      
2.  Double-click QIBM > ProdData > Access > Windows >          
    cwblaunch.exe to start the setup program.                  
3.  Choose a Custom installation. If you had the secondary      
    language installed in the previous version, the language    
    will appear selected under the Languages node. You can      
    select which secondary languages and features you want to  
    add or remove.                                              
4.  Complete the wizard.                                        
                                                               
Note: If you have secondary languages and the .NET Data        
Provider installed in the previous version, you must:          
1.  Use Selective Setup to uninstall the .NET Data Provider    
    prior to starting the upgrade.                              
    Upgrading .NET Data Provider secondary languages is not    
    supported by System i Access for Windows V6R1M0.            
2.  Run cwblaunch.exe to start the upgrade as described above.  
                                                               
To install a secondary language after System i Access for      
Windows has been installed:                                    
                                                               
1.  Map a drive to the System i QIBM sharepoint                
    (\\NetServerName\QIBM)                                      
2.  Double-click QIBM > ProdData > Access > Windows >          
    cwblaunch.exe to start the setup program.                  
3.  If your local installation is at an older service level    
    than the level on the System i, the installation program    
    will be launched in service pack mode. At this time you    
    will not be able to add secondary languages yet. Complete  
    the service pack wizard, then re-run cwblaunch.exe as      
    pointed out in the next step.                              
4.  Run cwblaunch.exe from QIBM > ProdData > Access > Windows  
    to start the maintenance wizard.                            
5.  Choose Modify to select which secondary languages you want  
    installed on your PC.                                      
6.  Complete the wizard.                                        
                                                               
To install a secondary language from the V6R1M0 System i Access
for Windows DVD                                                
                                                               
Since the V6R1M0 System i Access for Windows DVD was shipped    
without secondary language support, you first must install      
System i Access for Windows from the DVD, then download service
pack SI31390 or later from the System i Access for Windows web  
site and install it on the PC, then re-run the installation    
from the DVD in order to install secondary languages.          
                                                               
1.  Install the System i Access for Windows DVD by running      
    Windows > cwblaunch.exe.                                    
2.  Download the latest service pack from the System i Access  
    for Windows web site at                                    
    www-03.ibm.com/systems/i/software/access/windows/casp.html  
                                                               
    Note: Make sure to download the service pack version that  
    is right for your computer's processor architecture.        
                                                               
3.  Launch the service pack download on your PC in order to    
    upgrade System i Access for Windows to the new service      
    level.                                                      
4.  From your DVD, double click Windows > cwblaunch.exe to      
    start the maintenance wizard.                              
5.  Choose Modify to select which secondary languages you want  
    installed on your PC.                                      
6.  Complete the wizard.                                        
                                                               
Using CWBADDSECLANG to add secondary languages                  
                                                               
A new public property named CWBADDSECLANG is available to      
specify secondary languages from the command line. This is      
particularly useful for unattended installations.              
                                                               
Note that your local installation of System i Access for        
Windows V6R1M0 must be at service level SI31390 or greater.    
Otherwise, the CWBADDSECLANG property will be ignored. If      
System i Access for Windows is not yet installed, then your    
source installation image must be at service level SI31390 or  
greater. If you are installing from the System i Access for    
Windows V6R1M0 DVD then, after installing the DVD, you must    
download and install service pack SI31390 or later from the    
System i Access for Windows web site prior to use              
CWBADDSECLANG.                                                  
                                                               
To specify secondary languages at the command line:            
                                                               
1.  Open a command prompt window.                              
2.  Change directories to your installation image:              
    - If you are installing from a System i, change directories
      to QIBM > ProdData > Access > Windows.                    
    - If you are installing from DVD, change directories to the
                                                               
      Windows folder.                                          
3.  Type in the following command:                              
       cwblaunch /v"CWBADDSECLANG=mri29xx,mri29yy,..."          
    Where mri29xx, mri29yy, etc. are the NLV codes of the      
    languages that you want installed                          
                                                               
    Note: a list of 29xx NLV codes is available in the IBM      
    i5/OS information web site at                              
publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/systems/scope/i5os/index.jsp  
    Search for "National language version feature codes".      
4.  To install secondary languages silently, type in the        
    following command:                                          
       cwblaunch /s /v"/qb CWBADDSECLANG=mri29xx,mri29yy,..."  
5.  To install all languages available on your installation    
    image, specify CWBADDSECLANG=ALL.                          
6.  Complete the wizard.                                        
                                                               
                                                               
To install a secondary language from a custom DVD              
                                                               
You can burn a DVD out from the updated image residing on your  
System i, and distribute this custom DVD to your users so they  
can install secondary languages from the DVD without needing to
download the service pack from the web.                        
                                                               
1.  Apply System i Access for Windows PTF SI31390 or later on  
    your System i.                                              
2.  Map a drive to the System i QIBM sharepoint                
    (\\NetServerName\QIBM).                                    
3.  Burn the contents of QIBM > ProdData > Access > Windows to  
    your DVD.                                                  
                                                               
    Note: The three images under the Windows folder might not  
    fit on a single DVD. In that case, you can burn just the    
    image that is needed by your users -i.e. Image32, Image64a  
    or Image64i.                                                
4.  Instruct your users to run cwblaunch.exe from the custom DVD
    in order to install secondary languages.                    
                                                               
    The procedure is identical to the steps described under the
    section 'To install a secondary language from a System i'  
    above.                                                      
                                                               
After you have installed the secondary language, use System i  
Access for Windows Properties to select the language you want  
to use.                                                        
                                                               
Notes:                                                          
                                                               
-  You must run cwblaunch.exe or setup.exe in order to          
   install secondary languages. You cannot install secondary    
   languages from the Add or Remove Programs panel; in that    
   case, the Languages node will not be available.
