The Language in Which Siebel Installers and Wizards Run
This topic is part of General Considerations in Planning Your Siebel Deployment.
When you launch Siebel installer programs, the Siebel Image Creator utility, or Siebel Configuration Wizards, the program launches with a user interface in one of the Siebel supported languages.
For installers and Siebel Image Creator, the language in which the program launches is determined by the language for the locale of your operating system—if this language and locale are supported for the current version of Siebel Business Applications.
For Configuration Wizards, the language in which the program launches is determined by the following, in order of priority:
- The setting of the
LANG argument for the wizard, if specified. When the Configuration Wizard is launched by the installer, the installer launches the wizard with the
LANG argument set to the language the installer ran in. For details, see Configuration Wizard Syntax Elements.
- The setting of the
SIEBEL_LANGUAGE environment variable, if defined.
- The language for the locale of your operating system, if this language and locale are supported for the current version of Siebel Business Applications.
These programs can run in all languages corresponding to the available Siebel Language Packs, with the exceptions of Arabic, Hebrew, and Thai. You must use a different user interface language, as outlined above.
For installers or Siebel Image Creator, you must change the current operating system language and locale. Make sure the language setting under the regional option of your operating system is set to the desired choice of your language.
If the current locale is not supported and another language is not specified (where applicable), then, when you launch the program, you are prompted for the language in which to run the program.
Installers for Siebel client products always include a prompt for the language in which to run the installer.
