About Language Deployment and Patch Installations
This topic is part of About Installing and Deploying Siebel Business Applications with Multiple Languages.
When you perform a patch installation of the current release, Siebel CRM version 188.8.131.52 or version 184.108.40.206, including a migration installation for Siebel Enterprise Server or Siebel Web Server Extension (SWSE), files for all of the installed languages are automatically included. Before you install, you must include all of these languages when you create the network image for the current release. For more information about the types of Siebel releases, see About Siebel CRM Releases.
If you plan to perform a patch installation of the current release, and you also want to add languages to your existing deployment, then you have two options for how to do this, subject to limitations:
- Add languages after installing the current release. The Siebel Enterprise Server and SWSE installers for Siebel CRM version 220.127.116.11 or 18.104.22.168 support adding languages to an existing installation of the same version, using an unattended installation method. You would perform this task after performing the migration installation tasks for these modules. Some limitations might apply to adding languages to your existing installed Siebel client software. For more information, see Limitations for Installing Additional Languages and Installing and Deploying Additional Languages.
- Add languages before installing the current release. Subject to limitations for your existing installed Siebel server and client software, it might be possible for you to install new languages before you install the current release. To determine if this option is possible for the currently installed software in your Siebel deployment and, if so, to determine what steps are required, see the applicable Siebel Maintenance Release Guide on My Oracle Support and see the Siebel Installation Guide for the operating system you are using that applies to your currently installed Siebel software. For example, for version 22.214.171.124 on Microsoft Windows, see Siebel Maintenance Release Guide Version 126.96.36.199, and see Siebel Installation Guide for Microsoft Windows, version 8.1, Rev. D.
For a list of the languages supported by Siebel Business Applications, see 1513102.1 (Article ID) for version 8.1.1.x or 1524342.1 (Article ID) for version 8.2.2.x on My Oracle Support.
NOTE: Specific installation tasks and requirements might apply for any language pack for which support is provided after the base release, requiring a minimum Siebel release, such as Siebel CRM version 188.8.131.52x or version 8.2.2.x.
