Change Management console language Configuration Manager 2012 SP1 2

 

When starting the management console the language of the local OS will be detected. Then it will search if a language pack is present. When found, the corresponding language will be shown and troubleshooting will become a lot harder. Try searching errors in Dutch 😉 for instance…

Two solutions are possible to show the interface in English:

1. Change your OS  language from your control panel (Regional settings).

2. Rename the language pack folder within the install directory of your Management console. Default language pack locations of SCCM 2012 SP1 Management console:

  • System Center Configuration Manager 2012:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Configuration Manager\AdminConsole\bin\{language_code}

Close the management console, rename the language pack folder corresponding to your current OS language, restart the console and the default language (English) will be shown.

    Thanks for this workaround, easy and quick to get my SCCM console back to English after the SP1 – CU4 update got it to Dutch.
