Symptoms

When you run the Setup program for the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI), you click to select the Match the default shell UI font with the default user language check box. However, Windows does not localize user accounts in the language that you selected. You notice this problem when you have Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services installed on the computer.

Cause

This problem occurs because Windows SharePoint Services cannot change the Web.config file every time that the user interface language and the font language change.

Workaround

To work around this problem, use one of the following methods.

Method 1: Install the MUI before you install Windows SharePoint Services

Install the MUI, select the default language that you want, and then install Windows SharePoint Services.

Method 2: Do not match the default shell user interface font to the default user language

When you install Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 MUI, do not click to select the Match the default shell UI font with the default user language check box.

Method 3: Modify the Web.config file

If you change the MUI fonts and settings after you install Windows SharePoint Services, you must modify the Web.config file.

To modify this file, follow these steps:
  1. Locate the Web.config file in Windows Explorer.

    Note The Web.config file is located in the following folder:
    %Homedrive%\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\60\Template\Admin\1033
  2. Right-click the file, and then click Open With.
  3. Click Notepad, and then click OK.
  4. Find the following text:
    <authorization>
    <allow roles="BUILTIN\Administrators" />
    <deny users="*" />
    </authorization>
  5. Modify the text so that it reads as follows:
    <authorization>
    <allow roles="XXXX\LocalizedAdministrators" />
    <deny users="*" />
    </authorization>


    Note In this text, XXXX represents the localized account in the chosen language. LocalizedAdministrators represents the localized administrator account in the chosen language.
  6. Save the file
